Saskatoon Berries Stage Epic Comeback to Defeat Moose Jaw Miller Express in Extra-Inning Thriller

Moose Jaw suffered a heartbreaking 5-4 loss to Saskatoon in an intense 11-inning showdown in the Western Canadian Baseball League. Despite holding a commanding 4-0 lead going into the bottom of the ninth, the Miller Express could not contain the Berries’ late surge, resulting in a devastating walk-off defeat.

The loss brought Moose Jaw’s record to 7-7, leaving them at .500 for the season. However, with the tight competition in the East Division, they are still within striking distance of the top spot, currently held by the Medicine Hat Mavericks.

Pitcher Declan O’Hare delivered a stellar performance for the Miller Express, keeping Saskatoon scoreless through seven innings and giving his team a solid lead. The offense also contributed to the early advantage, scoring runs in the fourth and fifth innings.

Despite the strong start, Saskatoon mounted a remarkable comeback in the ninth, scoring four runs to force extra innings. The Berries eventually secured the win in the 11th inning, dealing Moose Jaw a tough defeat.

Carter Kopp’s impressive relief pitching for Saskatoon played a crucial role in their victory, while Austin Gurney and Bobby Pokorney led the Express offense with key hits.

Looking ahead, the Miller Express will face off against Weyburn and Swift Current before returning home to host Regina. The team is determined to bounce back from this tough loss and continue their pursuit of a playoff spot.
