The Estevan TS&M Tornados went from one end of the scale to the other during a doubleheader against Weyburn on Thursday.
The Tornados (5-5) won the first game 12-6 and lost the second 8-0 in Baseball Regina peewee AAA baseball action at Cactus Park.
The first game marked only the third loss of the year for first-place Weyburn (12-3).
The Tornados got a strong outing on the hill from Carter Kuchinka, who threw four and two-thirds innings to help his team to victory.
"He pitched awesome," said Tornados head coach Landon Lafrentz.
After a quiet start, the Tornados had a big inning to take control of the game.
"It was pretty tight until the third inning, and then we blew it open and scored five or six runs in the fourth," said Lafrentz.
"Everybody hit the ball, which really helped."
In the second game, the Tornados found themselves flummoxed by Weyburn's pitcher and struggled to get anything going at the plate.
"Weyburn's got this kid who's just a beast. We seem to have trouble every time we face him," said Lafrentz.
"Nobody seemed to be able to put the bat on the ball. I think we only had one hit the whole game."
Tornados starter Brett MacMurchy was solid, but didn't get any run support.
"We had good pitching that game, we just couldn't get any offence generated," said Lafrentz.
It was a rare weeknight doubleheader for the peewee club, but with the games shortened to five innings, Lafrentz said fatigue wasn't an issue.
"It wasn't too bad. It was a nice night out. We haven't played games in so long that I think they were happy to get back at it," he said.
The Tornados were scheduled to play at a tournament in Brandon on the weekend.
The team will host Swift Current for a doubleheader on Saturday. Game times are 1 and 4 p.m. at Cactus Park.
