As you might expect when a first place team takes on a last place one, the first place team is likely to win.
That was the scenario tonight, (Wednesday), as the Yorkton Cardinals, last in the Western Canadian Baseball League east visited first place Weyburn, and the Beavers would win 11-2.
It would be the 22nd win for Weyburn, and the 27th loss for the Cardinals.
Weyburn took the lead scoring six in the second inning, then added three in the fourth, and two in the sixth to lead 11-0.
Yorkton finally got on the board with two in the seventh for the 11-2 final.
Marcus Catalano led the Beaver offence with three hits and three runs-batted-in.
Chase Stratton was the winning pitcher for Weyburn. He went seven innings as the starter, allowing one hit, two runs, both earned, walking three and striking out 11.
Andrew Magness took the loss on the mound for Yorkton. He started and went four innings, allowing none hits, and nine runs, seven of those earned, while walking five.
