The Mavericks took advantage of six Regina errors to score seven unearned runs on route to a 7-5 win.
Tommy Lay, the left-handed starter from Arizona Christian University, took the loss. Lay faced 33 batters over his six innings of work before turning the ball over to Jeremy Sylvester in the 7th inning. Regina born Kendal Daniel came on to face the Maverick hitters in the top of the 8th while Louis Cohen pitched a scoreless 9th inning.
Red Sox centerfielder Zach Weatherford continued to impress Regina baseball fans as he scored a run and was 2 for 4 at the plate. The speedy junior from Wright State also added a team best 10th stolen base.
