Wolves take one on the chin to open provincials

An uncharacteristically rough outing by the Estevan Tap House Wolves pitchers led to an early end to their first game at provincials Friday night at Lynn Prime Park.

The Wolves lost 11-1 to the Border City Blue Jays from Lloydminster after a few gift wrapped walks and hit by pitches from three Estevan pitchers on the day. The game was the Wolves’ first in the Saskatchewan Baseball’s senior AA tier II division provincials continuing until Sunday.

The loss means the Wolves face a tough task Saturday with a pair of games they’ll need to win, or at least keep closer, in oppressive daytime heat.

It was a much better day on the field for the Saskota Baseball League’s other teams in the tournament earlier Friday as the Carlyle Cardinals won 11-7 over the Kindersley Stallions and the Oxbow Chiefs won 15-9 over the Yorkton Yankees.

Saturday, the Blue Jays battle the Cardinals, while the Stallions take on the Chiefs at 9 a.m. Then, at noon, the Yankees take on the Wolves and at 3 p.m. the Chiefs and Blue Jays will oppose each other. The final games of the round robin will be at 6 p.m. when the Cardinals take on the Blue Jays and the Wolves play the Stallions.

Playoffs are scheduled for Sunday.
