The Weyburn Iron Pigs have their first game of the Qu’Appelle Valley Baseball League playoffs this evening, against the Moose Jaw Padres. 

The Iron Pigs finished 3rd in the regular season with an 8-8 record. 

“We're in the top-tier division,” said center fielder, Mike Onstad. "We've always had a strong team and we were in the finals last year and a couple of years before that, I think two years in a row we actually made the finals so we're always a top contender in the league, that's for sure.”   

Onstad added it usually comes down to good pitching. 

“Hopefully our bats get hot and we can score a bunch of runs. There are a lot of good teams in this division, so we gotta have good bats against their good pitchers, and our pitchers who are really good gotta be at their best as well.”   

The game takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Tom Laing Park.
