The two time defending WMBL champion Swift Current 57’s were the Cardinals opponent on this evening. It was a competitive game all the way through but unfortunately a great pitching performance by Owen Steele (Calgary, AB) and Andrew Cisneros (Sacramento, CA) was squandered by seven errors and eleven runners left on base in a 5-4 setback.
Steele threw five solid innings allowing four unearned runs on four hits and six strikeouts while allowing just one walk. Cisneros tossed four excellent innings of relief allowing five hits and an unearned run with four strikeouts and just one walk.
Ryne Niemi (Adams State University) continued his great start to the season with two singles, an rbi and a stolen base. Thirus Jones (Orlando, FL) and Gage Buck (PBA Lethbridge) each had a single, double and an rbi. Buck also scored two runs. Colin Kellington, Chris Cook and Jayse Wilson each had a single.
The losing streak is now at five to start the season, but the Cards look to get in the win column tomorow night as they once again host the 57’s at 7:05 pm at Jubilee Park. The Cardinals would like to thank Gifts of Gold for being the game day sponsor!
