The Moose Jaw Miller Express have won three in a row after winning a pair of games over the Canada Day long weekend. 

The Miller Express opened the weekend in Regina and picked up a 9-8 win over the first-place Red Sox. 

Regina jumped out of an early 2-0 lead after two innings. In the top of the third inning, Austin Gurney doubled to left field to score Thomas Soto and Nathan Houston. A Declan O’Hare sacrifice fly would score Gurney. Nate Mensik capped off the four-run inning, scoring off a Garrett Dennis fielder’s choice. 

Moose Jaw would make it 6-2 in the top of the fourth. Soto and Houston would cross home plate for the Miller Express. Regina would reply with a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth to make it 6-4. 

The Miller Express drove in two more runs in the top of the sixth. O'Hare singled to center field, scoring Gurney and Mensik on the play. The Red Sox replied with three runs in the bottom of the sixth to narrow the gap to 8-7. 

Wyatt Tweet scored what would hold up as the game-winning run off an error in the top of the ninth. Regina added a run in the bottom of the ninth, but could not find the equalizer. Jacob Castaneda picked up the win on the mound and Westin Walls got the save. 

Moose Jaw finished off the weekend on Canada Day Monday, defeating the Edmonton Prospects 6-2 at Ross Wells Park in a rain-shortened game that ended in the seventh inning. 

Edmonton opened the scoring with a run in the top of the first inning. Moose Jaw tied it in the bottom of the second when Elijah Bear scored. The Miller Express took the lead with pair of runs in the bottom of the third. Robert Estrada scored off a Nathan Houston sacrifice fly. Gurney would then score on a Bear single to make it 3-1 for Moose Jaw. 

The Prospects got back within one, scoring a run in the top of the fourth. However, Moose Jaw pulled away with three runs in the bottom of the sixth. A double to Tweet scored Bear from second base. O'Hare then scored a couple batters later off a wild pitch. Tweet would round out the scoring off another wild pitch. In the top of the seventh, Edmonton had one out and was on their second batter when the rain came down and the game was called. 

Ethan Merk got the win on the mound, going six innings, allowing six hits, two runs and struck out four.
