Numbers one through four of the hitting order for the Moose Jaw Canadians have been pounding the ball well this season, but Tuesday night's 13-1 win over the Regina Gold at Lyle Helland Diamond at Memorial Field was special even for them.
Leadoff hitter Bryce Crosbie went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI, scoring three runs, number two hitter Brad Reaney hit a two-run homer and a single, scoring two runs in the game, and cleanup hitter Dane Roy hit two doubles and a two-run home run in Rambler Park Men's Fastball League action.
But it was Jay Livingston who, once again at Memorial field, went yard with the sacks full, hitting his second grand slam in as many games, part of a two home run night for him.
"Every time I come up it seems, I'm coming up with at least two guys on," he said. "It makes it easy. In that situation, honestly, all I'm trying to do is hit a deep one and score a run. They happen to be going out. It's a little bit of luck."
The ball that ended up being the grand slam looked to be tracked down by the Regina centrefielder but ended up beyond the fence, nearly at the same place last week's grand slam went.
The season has been going well for the 7-and-1 Canadians, and Livingston in particular, during some recent mercy rule blowouts.
"We've had some close ones where we've got some hits at the right times, but the last few games it just seems like everything we've hit has fallen," he said. "We hit a few out tonight, but you're going to have games when that happens but most often they're going to be when you need timely hitting, That's the most important thing is that you're going to have close games, and then nights like tonight."
The Gold are winless in the top division of the Rambler Park league. The Canadians outhit the Gold 14-1 in the game.
Xavier Trembley pitched well on the mound in his outing for the Canadians, allowing only a single hit while striking out four.
The other scheduled game of the night between the Giants and the Golden Hawks couldn't go due to the Hawks hosting a tournament over the weekend.
