Silas Butler would hit into a fielders choice to put the Red Sox in front. After Diego Aragon drove another run home Silas Butler would strike again this time with a two RBI double.

After another run and three straight hits in the top of the fourth Tavarez would get pulled. The Red Sox would continue to hit around as four more runs would score making it a 9-0 game going into the top of the fifth.

The Bombers would finally answer back with a pair of their own curtosey of Cash Benavidez and Maddox Shaver RBI hits. In the top of the sixth Evan Hoegler would settle in and put up back to back scoreless innings after only giving up one run in the fifth.

Jouseph Gelpi would drive in Maddox Shaver in the top of the eighth but the Red Sox would get to Killian McLaughlin for a pair of runs in the bottom half. In the top of the ninth Benavidez would drive home Antony Gilbert for the fifth run for Brooks but that would be all as the Bombers couldnt muster any more offense.

Thursday night had a coupple positives, one certainly being Evan Hoeglers long relief appearance going four strong innings.

On Friday night Hoeglers fellow UBC teammate Tyson Kilbreath would take the mound for the first time since going eight shutout innings against Fort McMurray last Thursday. Daniel Crabtree would go for the Red Sox.

Regina would start quickly as Jackson Alinaz drove in Jackson Syring in the first and Justin Carinci scored Silas Butler in the second. Crabtree was dailed in on the mound for Regina. He would settle in and carry a no hitter into the sixth inning.

Kilbreath would match his energy though as both pitchers would keep getting outs and make the game air tight. In the sixth Jouseph Gelpi and Payton Matthews would get on and Gelpi would score off a past ball. In the seventh the Bombers had a chance to tie the game when Jacob Police hit a single into left field. Jacob Gillis was digging for home but was thrown out in a close play at the plate.

Kilbreath would toss his fifth straight scorless inning in the seventh and would be back out there for the eighth. He would walk Jaylen Meyers and strikeout Jackson Syring but Kody Hannah would get his team high third hit of the night and it would be a costly one as it left the yard ending Kilbreaths incredible night.

Regina would add another run after Kilbreath was pulled and it completly took the wind out of the Bombers sails. Crabtree would throw a complete on friday night to cap off the series sweep of Brooks.

The Bombers will be in Weyburn on the weekend for a pair against the Beavers for the final leg of their Saskatchewan journey.
