The Weyburn Beavers have now made it eight in a row. After once again finding themselves in a hole late in the game, the team rallied to put the runs on the board to pick up the win, as they doubled up the Regina Red Sox 12-6 at Currie Field Monday night.

The Beavers were led by the bats of Drake Pilat and Corey Harrell. Pilat had a two-run blast in the seventh inning which tied the game up 6-6. Harrell had three RBI of his own, coming off three singles. Corey Wheaton, Cam Williams, Omar Prieto and Eric Morales also contributed RBI in the win.

Reid Wall had the start on the mound, and went 5 ⅓ innings, striking out seven, and giving up six runs. The bullpen then came out and finished off the game, giving up no runs. Brodie Stairs went a full inning, striking out one. Shandon Herrera, who was credited with the win, went 1 ⅔ innings with three strikeouts, and Eric Morales moved to the mound from shortstop to finish the game off.

The Beavers did score the first run of the game in the first inning, when Harrell picked up his first RBI of the game with a single to let, cashing in Cam Williams. In the bottom of the same inning, though, Regina pulled out with a lead after scoring two runs of their own.

In the fourth, Weyburn tied the game up at two with an RBI single by Morales, which brought in Pilat from third. The fifth inning then saw Weyburn out ahead 4-2, with Harrell getting his second RBI of the game and Prieto following it up with an RBI single, as Wheaton and Williams crossed the plate respectively.

The Red Sox then scored four unanswered runs over the bottom of the fifth and sixth innings.

The Beavers then found themselves in a familiar situation. Down in the seventh inning.

Omar Prieto got himself on base with a fielder’s choice, then Pilat came up to plate. He crushed the full count pitch over the fence, tying the game up.

In the eighth, the Beavers put the game out of reach.

Cam Williams brought in Corey Wheaton with a single to right field, then an error by the second baseman allowed Luke Lubinieki to score as well. Harrell then cashed in Williams with a single to left, and a double to left from Pilat scored Harrell. A wild pitch then scored Prieto, and Pilat crossed the plate again when Wheaton was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.

The Beavers will look to make it nine wins in a row when they host the Fort McMurray Giants tonight at Tom Laing Park. The Giants are on their East Division road swing this week. They enter the game 4-4 on the season and are coming off a 9-6 win Monday night over the Swift Current 57’s. Game time for the game is 7:05 p.m. at Tom Laing Park.
