Finals Rematch Upcoming in SESBL

South East Senior Baseball League

The Willowbrook Royals have revenge on their minds as they head back to the South East Senior Baseball League for a second straight year.

The Royals knocked off the 2nd place Canora Supers in the semi-finals, with a 3-2 win last night to sweep the Best-of-Three.

Willowbrook lost in the final to the Yorkton Jr Cardinals last year... and are set to face them again.

The Jr Cards are looking for their third straight league title.

Western Major Baseball League

After losing the first two games of their four game road trip, the Melville Millionaires ended up with a split.

The Mils won their second straight game last night, a 3-2 nail-biter in Saskatoon, for their 20th win of the season.

The heart of Melville's lineup was held in check once again, as Jon Clark, Matt Helms and Nick Senior all went without a hit, but Will Fontnow and Colton Engel each had 2 hits, and Allen Rimer went 8 innings on the mound, giving up just 1 run on 4 hits.

Helms went just 1-for-15 on the four game trip... seeing him average fall from .379 to .347... still not too shabby.


Lots of runs in Moose Jaw last night, where the Yorkton Cardinals dropped an 11-7 decision to the Miller Express.

It was 5-5 after just three innings, and 9-6 Moose Jaw after the fourth, before things settled down.

Jon Mihic hit his second home run of the season for the Cards, in the top of the first, and finished the night 3-for-5 with 2 RBI's and 2 runs.

James Green stole 2 bases, giving him 31 on the year, just 4 away from the WMBL record.

The Cards are now 3 games back of Weyburn for a playoff spot, and are in Regina to face the first place Red Sox tonight. Regina's already clinched the East Division pennant.

Tri-Highway Fastball League

The defending champs have been slayed in the Tri-Highway Fastball League.

The Grenfell Gems dropped a 5-2 decision against the visiting Chetty's Pretty Boys... and after winning the league last year, the Gems failed to win a game in this year's playoffs. The pretty Boys are off to the league semis.

The Rhein Rockets drew first blood in their series, beating the YTC Chiefs 14-6 last night. Game 2 goes Monday in Yorkton.
