Carver Krafchuk led the offence by going four-for-four with two doubles and two singles. He also scored twice.
The Twins final game of the regular season was a 13-3 loss against the Wolfpack the following day. The game only went five innings, as the mercy rule came into play
Regina jumped to an early lead, scoring seven runs in the second inning, and the Twins were unable to recover.
Next up for the Twins is the provincial championship in Saskatoon from July 25 to 27.
Coach Derek Wallace said his team has performed well in tournaments this year, and he believes they can succeed in provincials.
“If our pitching staff comes out and throws like they can, I think we can succeed,” said Wallace. “We’ve got one of the deepest pitching staffs in the province, it’s just a matter of them coming out and having solid performances,”
The Twins will play three games in the round robin. They open the tournament against the Regina Mets.
The top two teams from each pool advance to the playoff round.
