The Canucks couldn’t get a lot going at the plate against the Regina White Sox and had more than their share of difficulties in the field on their way to taking an 11-0 mercy rule loss at Swarbrick Diamond.
Things were tough for the local squad right off the hop, as Regina would take advantage of a couple of walks, a wild pitch and three errors to put five runs on the board.
The White Sox would tag on another three in the third and three more in the fourth while taking advantage of a total of nine Canucks errors on the night to secure their five-inning victory.
Offensively, things didn’t go a whole lot better. Moose Jaw would manage only four hits on the night, with Owen Varjassy’s third-inning double their lone extra-base hit.
Owen Csada got the start for the Canucks and allowed eight runs on four hits in 2 ⅔ innings, with only three of those scores counted as earned due to the raft of errors. In fact, those runs were the only earned runs on the night for Regina, as Rylan Caplette-Tarrant pitched 1 1/3 and allowed three unearned before Cooper Gregor closed things out, giving up a single hit and no runs while striking out two in his inning of work.
All told, Regina had only five hits on the night, but also walked six times.
The Canucks are back in action Saturday when they take on the South East A’s in a doubleheader in Alameda.
