Moose Jaw splits pair of one-run games in 15U AAA doubleheader

Canucks lose 3-2, take 10-9 win over South East in Baseball Regina action
The Moose Jaw Canucks picked up a doubleheader split against the South East A’s in Baseball Regina 15U AAA action at Swarbrick Field on Saturday afternoon.

The Canucks dropped the opener 3-2 to the A’s before rebounding with a 10-9 win in the second game of the twinbill.

Moose Jaw is now 2-6 on the season and is back in the field on Wednesday, July 30 when they host the Regina Pirates.

A’s 3, Canucks 2

The Canucks had solid pitching performances from Owen Varjassy and Gerritt Gulutzan and didn’t commit an error, but just couldn’t string together the hits they needed.

Varjassy started and allowed two runs on four hits over three innings, Gulutzan tossed the final four and surrendered one run while scattering six hits and striking out eight.

The A’s led 2-0 after the third and 3-1 through four, with the Canucks scoring their final run in the fifth.

Rylan Caplette-Tarrant had two of the Canucks’ four hits and also scored a run.

A’s 10, Canucks 9

The Canucks scored in every inning but the sixth on their way to a one-run victory and snuffed out a final-inning rally to secure the win.

In complete contrast to the previous contest, they also refused to keep the ball in the park.

Noah Thul led the assault with two home runs as part of a 3-for-3 outing that included two runs scored and five runs batted in. Javin Boynton also homered and was 3-for-4 with three runs and three RBI; Gulutzan capped the round-tripper fest and was 2-for-2 with two RBI.

Boynton, Caplette-Tarrant and Owen Csada all pitched, combining to allow seven earned runs on 13 hits and striking out eight.
