It would be safe to say the Moose Jaw Canucks have had their share of bad luck in Baseball Regina 15U AAA league action this season.

But every once in a while, the baseball gods decide to even things out.

The Canucks picked up their third-straight one-run victory on Tuesday, scoring three runs in the bottom of the seventh to defeat the Regina Expos 5-4, one night after holding on to take a 4-3 win over the Assiniboia Aces.

Moose Jaw now has won four of their last five to sit at 6-9 and tied for sixth place in the nine-team league.

They’re back in action Saturday when they host the White Butte Broncos (10-4) at Swarbrick Diamond. Game time is 2 p.m.

Canucks 5, Expos 4

Trailing 4-2 heading into the final inning, the Canucks needed a bit of a miracle, and that’s exactly what they got.

Kale Pratte hit a one-out single to score Nathan Pisio and Gerritt Gulutzan and came around to score the game-winning run on a hit by Owen Csada to give the Canucks the one-run victory.

The comeback capped a solid night at the plate for Pratte, who finished 2-for-3 with three runs batted in. Pisio, meanwhile, was 2-for-3 with a pair of runs; Max Simmons had a 2-for-3 night at the plate.

Owen Varassy got the start and allowed three runs, one earned, on four hits in 3 ⅓ innings of work; Rylan Caplette-Tarrant tossed 2 ⅔ and allowed a single unearned run on three hits, Simmons pitched a scoreless seventh to pick up the win.

Gulutzan had another strong showing on the mound, giving up a single hit over 4 ⅓ and allowing two runs, one earned, as the Canucks held on for the narrow win.

Csada pitched the final 2 ⅔ and surrendered an unearned run and two hits to land the win.

Varjassy put together an outstanding night at the plate, hitting a solo home run in the fifth to go along with a second-inning triple as part of a 2-for-2 outing.

Cooper Gregor went 2-for-3 and knocked in a pair, Csada also had a pair of hits in two trips to the plate.
