Jesse Goertzen tossed nine strong innings Tuesday night to lead the Brandon Marlins into first place in the Manitoba Senior Baseball League.

Goertzen scattered seven hits and four walks while striking out four in a 5-1 victory over the defending champion Reston Rockets as the Marlins improved to 15-4-1 to leapfrog the Brandon Cloverleafs (15-4-0) into first place by one point.

The Cloverleafs have a chance to retake top spot tonight when they close out their regular-season schedule by battling the Farmers (2-16-0) in Neepawa. Last night, the Farmers fell 5-3 to the visiting Oak River Dodgers (7-11-0).

At Andrews Field last night, the Marlins scored all five runs in the fifth inning, led by Paul Thompson who went 3-for-3 with two stolen bases and a run scored.

Nate Andrews was 2-for-3 while Matt DeGagne drove in a pair of runs for the hosts. Buddy Mayert and Mitch Olson both went 2-for-5 for the Rockets (7-11-1), with Mayert driving in Reston’s lone run in the seventh inning. Rockets starter Des Koop took the loss, working 4 1/3 innings.

Dodgers 5 Farmers 3

In Neepawa, Morgan Geekie singled twice and scored twice to lead Oak River.

Taw Fredrickson pitched six innings to earn the win, while Miguel Letain tossed two innings for the save.

Further game details were not available from the Farmers’ organization prior to deadline.

Neepawa game under review

The MSBL executive will decide whether Neepawa forfeited Monday’s game in Oak River, or whether it will be rescheduled after the Farmers failed to field a team due to a lack of players.

Key to the decision will be whether the game could affect the final playoff positions.

"It’s in discussion with the executive and it’s ongoing, so nothing has to be determined yet," MSBL president Neil Franklin said Tuesday.
