A weekend of highs, lows, and postponements for the Weyburn Beavers as they played two of their three scheduled games this weekend.  

The weekend started with a game against the Moose Jaw Miller Express Friday night at Tom Laing Park. The Miller Express would hamme starting pitcher Ryan Meyer early, scoring seven runs off him in the first two innings as they went on to a 12-6 victory.  

Offensively for the Beavers, Ian Heck finished the game going 3-for-5, with three RBIs. Niko Kekatos also had a solid outing at the plate, finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and double. The biggest performance of the night came from Nick Teng.  

Teng would hit a home run in the fifth inning. The homer capped off a 2-for-3 performance for him that included a pair of RBIs.  

On the mound, Mathieu Rocheleau pitched the sixth and seventh innings in relief of Meyer, striking out five while allowing one run on three hits. Easton Mould and Halen Otte also pitched an inning each in relief.  

Saturday, the Beavers welcomed the Saskatoon Berries to town once again, and it was a back-and-forth contest throughout the eight innings they were able to finish before a thunderstorm rolled into town.  

Weyburn would start the game with a 3-0 lead after two innings before Saskatoon managed to rally back to tie the game. The teams would exchange the lead before Otte opened things wide in the seventh inning, helping the Beavers win.  

In the seventh, with bases loaded, Otte would hit a monster shot to left-centre for his second home run of the game, and the first grand slam of the season for the Beavers. It was also the first grand slam for Weyburn at Tom Laing Park since Jack Barrie hit one during the 2019 campaign.  

Otte would finish the game going 3-for-4 at the plate with two home runs, a double, and five RBIs. 

Teng would also finish with an RBI, as did Easton Mould and Dallas Cummins. Ryan Muizelaar continued his strong play at the plate as well, with his sixth double of the season. 

After going 2-for-4 in the game Saturday, Muizelaar’s hitting streak is now at seven games. Over that stretch, he has batted .387 and had an on-base percentage of .441, a slugging percentage of .612, and an OPS of 1.053. He has hit three doubles and a home run in that stretch while driving in seven runs.  

Tanner Coddington got the win on the mound Saturday, as he struck out two while allowing four runs in two innings of relief. Starting pitcher Ethan Webster finished the night with five innings, striking out four, while allowing three runs, two earned, on eight hits.  

The Beavers were scheduled to play Sunday afternoon in Saskatoon, but rain forced the game to be postponed to July 6th.  

The Beavers are back in action Tuesday, as they welcome the Medicine Hat Mavericks to Tom Laing Park.
