Seven-run second inning leads to 13U AA Canucks blowout win

Fast start a key factor in 13-3 victory over Regina Buffalos at Gattinger Diamond
The Moose Jaw 13U AA Canucks appear to be the kind of team that doesn’t give up on an inning very easily.

Just look at their most recent contest against the Regina Buffalos as an example.

After seeing two of their first three batters go down in the bottom of the second inning, the next eight Canucks hitters would reach base, scoring seven runs and going on to a 13-3 victory at Gattinger Diamond.

Tryton Legare started the second-inning rally with a two-out single and was immediately followed by Kyren Ernest and Hunter Scott with back-to-back doubles. All told, the Canucks would rack up six hits and a pair of walks in the frame to take an 8-0 lead.

It was all but academic from there, as Moose Jaw would tack on four more in the fourth to go up 12-1 and cruise to the mercy-rule victory.

Brogan Bowes would finish the game with a 3-for-4 showing, scoring a pair of runs and knocking in three. Scott ended up 2-for-3 with two runs and two RBI, while Ernest would cross the plate three times. Zayden Anderson also had a decent night at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a run and two RBI.

When he wasn’t running the bases, Anderson was outright dealing on the mound – three innings pitched, no runs, no hits, no walks and seven strikeouts. Scott took over in the fourth and scattered six hit over two innings, giving up three runs – one earned – and striking out five.

The Canucks improved to 4-2-1 on the season and are back in action Saturday when they face the Buffalos in a rematch in Regina.
