Pat Vandoorne was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate, came around to score twice and drove in another run as the Brandon Marlins closed within a point of the Manitoba Senior Baseball League-leading Brandon Cloverleafs on Sunday with an 8-3 victory over their cross-town rivals.

Elsewhere, it was Reston Rockets 6, Neepawa Farmers 3; and Rockets 6, Farmers 4.

On Saturday, it was Cloverleafs 10, Oak River Dodgers 8.

At Andrews Field, Ryan Boguski drove in three runs, while Nolan Jago went 1-for-4 with two runs and an RBI and Nate Andrews hit a solo home run for the Marlins (14-4-1), who will try to take over first place when they host the Rockets on Tuesday. Sam McNiece went the distance on the mound, holding the Cloverleafs (15-4-0) to 10 hits, to earn the win.

Anthony Friesen lasted seven innings and gave up seven runs on 10 hits to take the loss. Matt Gunning and Kevin McNeill both had a pair of hits and an RBI for the Cloverleafs, while Derek Chapman went 2-for-5 with a run scored.
