The Wesman Diamond Dawgs need to earn a pair of wins in Winnipeg on Wednesday to secure the provincial Junior AA baseball championship.
The Diamond Dawgs fell 2-0 to the Elmwood Giants in Game 1 of the best-of-three series Saturday at Brandon Field. Bryce Enns took the loss despite a spectacular 14-strikeout effort, giving up two unearned runs. He walked six batters in the contest. Wesman managed only two hits against Elmwood pitcher Austin Smith, one by Enns and the other by Evan Brereton.
The series was originally to be completed on Sunday afternoon, but Game 2 has been rescheduled to Wednesday at 7 p.m., at Koskie Field. If a third game is necessary, it will follow at 9 p.m.
