The Brandon Cloverleafs came through when they needed to most to claim the Manitoba Senior Baseball League’s regular season pennant.

Travis Jean went 3-for-5 with three RBIs as the Cloverleafs clobbered the host Neepawa Farmers 15-1 on Wednesday night to secure first place.

Getting top spot locked up was a chore as the Brandon Marlins battled back to take a one-point lead in the standings going into Wednesday, but the Cloverleafs responded.

"The last little part of the season we went into games kind of falling asleep a bit because there wasn’t the intensity required," Cloverleafs manager Ryan Potter said. "Being in some tight games and losing a couple put pressure on us to clinch first spot and tonight the guys came out swinging the bats and responded really well."

Sean Dryden worked six innings and gave up one run on six hits to collect the win for the Cloverleafs, while Derek Chapman was 4-for-5 with three runs scored and an RBI.

Garett Rempel took the loss on the mound for the Farmers (2-17-0) and scored their lone run on a hit by Cam Tibbett.

Meanwhile, in Reston, Cole Stober scattered four hits in a complete-game effort as he helped the Rockets (8-11-1) lock up third place with a 3-1 win over the Oak River Dodgers (7-12-0).

Rory Tycoles went 2-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI, while Buddy Mayert doubled and scored a run. Brody Burnett went the distance and took the loss for Oak River, while Mike McFadden tripled and scored the team’s run.

The Rockets will now meet the Marlins in the semifinals, while the Dodgers host the Farmers in the 4-vs.-5 playoff game on Monday at 6:30 p.m. On Wednesday, the league officially ruled that Neepawa had defaulted Monday’s game to Oak River when it couldn’t field a team.
