Farmers eliminate Dodgers in playoff

Jason Vinnell cranked a two-run homer to power the visiting Neepawa Farmers to a 6-4 victory over the Oak River Dodgers in the Manitoba Senior Baseball League playoffs on Monday night.

The Farmers, who finished fifth in the regular season with a 3-17-0 record, eliminated the fourth-place Dodgers (7-13-0) in the sudden-death playoff game to earn a spot in the best-of-five semifinals to face the first-place Brandon Cloverleafs (16-4-0). That series will start Friday at Brandon’s Andrews Field at 7 p.m., while the second-place Brandon Marlins (15-4-1) will host the defending champion Reston Rockets (8-11-1) in the other semifinal series starting Wednesday at Andrews Field at 7 p.m.

Last night in Oak River, Torey Scott went 2-for-5 with a triple and a pair of RBIs for the Farmers. Morgan Geekie was 4-for-5 with a double and an RBI for the Dodgers, while Ryan Acra finished 2-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored for the hosts.

Josh Loewen struck out nine over 7 1/3 innings to earn the win, scattering six hits and three walks. Ryan Shaw took the loss, surrendering all six runs on nine hits and a walk with three strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings of work.
