of The Crossroads
The Kindersley Raiders are Fertile Valley Baseball League champions for a second year in a row after defeating the Kindersley Stallions in a three-game series.
Three large crowds at Berard Field in Kindersley enjoyed the thrilling best-of-three series played on consecutive days from June 30 to Aug. 2. The Stallions won Game 1 before the more experienced Raiders battled back to win the series.
In Game 1, the Stallions edged the Raiders by a score of 2-1. Starting pitchers Corson Harris of the Stallions and Byron Ismond of the Raiders both pitched all seven innings. A couple errors early in Game 1 put the Raiders down, and neither team could manage to score runs in the late innings.
The Raiders bats came alive early in the second and third games. A sacrifice bunt and an RBI single allowed the Raiders to get a run in the first inning of Game 2, and a solo home run off the bat of Matt Dunn added to the lead in the second inning.This content is for members only.
