The Swift Current 57's dropped a 9-3 decision to the Regina Red Sox on Wednesday night at Mitchell Field in a game that was cut short after seven innings when a sudden thunderstorm moved in.
Swift Current opened the scoring with Cory Bonstrom coming home after Carter Hinds hit into a double play in the bottom of the first, but Regina responded with a two run homer from Bitner Workman and a solo shot from Dylan Edmands to make it 3-1 in the top of the second. The Red Sox added another run in the third as Mike Piazza scored on an RBI single by Jackson Alaniz, and then Piazza hit an RBI single of his own in the fourth to cash in Greyson Shafer, which was followed up by a sacrifice fly by Justin Simard to bring home Edmands and make it 6-1 for Regina.
The Red Sox added to the lead with a solo home run by Kyle Revere in the fifth inning before Bonstrom came home on an RBI single by Ethan Gonzalez, who then scored on a Nolan Lingley ground out to make it 7-3. Regina picked up two more runs in the top of the seventh with Alaniz scoring on an RBI single by Shafer, and then Revere coming home on a sacrifice fly by Edmands to make the score 9-3. Rain moved in following the seventh inning, and the game was called following a 45-minute delay.
57's starter Dawson Schultz allowed four runs on five hits and struck out three batters over three innings of work. Cameron Hood took the win for Regina, allowing just one hit and one run over five innings with three strikeouts.
The 57's (2-2) start a seven-game road swing when they visit the Moose Jaw Miller Express on Thursday night.
