The Major AA Moose Jaw A’s and Blue Jays went back and forth well into the evening at Gamble Diamond, with the A’s coming out on top 13-10.

The A’s stayed in first place with the win in their last game of the season. A's head coach Courtney Lacelle talked about what's been happening this year.

“Our team has played well, and we stuck together as a team,” said Lacelle. “We like to try and communicate our little things and keep them on pace. The Blue Jays definitely have some good pitchers and they’ve got some good hitters. It showed (Wednesday) night that we’ve got some work to do, but our kids played together as a team and it’s been good all year that way.”

A’s player Sara Umana got on base four times, including a late inside-the-park home run. Several players also scored two runs each for the A’s, including Kaleb McCrystal who went 3-for-3.

For the Blue Jays, Carter Stewart went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs and Russell MacDonald reached base four times, scoring twice.

“Tonight was a big one,” Lacelle said. “Our top couple of hitters weren’t doing what they normally do. We had Sara step up with a home run and closed out the game for us... We try not to focus on individual players and just keep everybody as a team.”

Between the two teams, there have been some back and forth games this year, with the As getting the better of the Blue Jays earlier this season.

“Last game, Courtney’s team, the A’s, hit the ball really well, and then tonight, they hit the ball well, and then we hit the ball well too tonight,” said Dreger. “Both teams were consistent and it was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, it got dark before the game ended, but it’s all fun though. It’s all good.”

The As will learn who they play in the playoffs in the North Regina Little League. The double-elimination playoffs start on September 7.
