A member of the Estevan Sluggers tries to get on base during a home game against the Regina Buffalos on June 21.

The Southeast Legacy Midget AAA Twins baseball team suffered two losses to the Regina Wolfpack during a double header in Weyburn on June 21.

The scores were 6-3 in Game 1 and 5-4 in extra innings in Game 2.

Coach Derek Wallace said the team struggled at the plate in the first game.

“We kind of came out slow, and the bats weren’t really going,” said Wallace.

Despite the offensive struggles, Craver Krafchuck went three-for-four, hitting two singles and a double. And Sean Jonassen also went three-for-four, supplying three singles and a run batted in (RBI).

The Twins were down 6-1 going into the bottom of the seventh and Wallace said the team didn’t give up.

“We’re never going to give up and we’re never out of a game, we’re always battling and trying to get back in and win,” said Wallace.

In the second game, the Twins were down 4-3 going into the bottom of the seventh, and tied it up to send it into extra innings. James Giroux took the loss, as he allowed one run in two innings.

Wallace would like to see is team play more consistently.

“We’ve shown ourselves in the past couple of weeks that we are capable of playing at a high level, it’s just getting to that point of being more consistently now,” he said.

The Twins' record is 4-20. They will face the Wolfpack in Regina on July 1.

The Estevan KPC Mosquito AAA Sluggers dropped double headers to Regina teams on June 21 and 22.

On the 21st, the Sluggers played the Regina Buffalos at home, and lost 17-1 in four innings in Game 1, and 15-9 in Game 2.

The following day the Sluggers traveled to Regina to play the White Sox, and lost both games 12-1.

Throughout the weekend, coach Tim Miller noticed fatigue from his team, as they played 11 games eight days. Sluggers also compete in house league.

“With house ball being done now, we’re going to be practicing twice a week, so over the next four weeks we’re hopefully going to see some good progression,” he said.

Miller believes that the team has learned to come ready to play every game, but this past weekend was their toughest, he said.

“We can compete with these teams, so it’s just a matter of our kids in believing in themselves and their ability,” said Miller.

The Sluggers play a double header against the White Butte Broncos on June 28 at home, and visit them the following day in Pilot Butte to finish the regular season.
