WIINIPEG - Logan Hofmann struck out nine batters in six dominant innings on the mound to lead Saskatchewan to a 3-1 win over Manitoba
to claim the Canada Games baseball gold medal. The win came in front of over 7,000 fans at Shaw Park to mark the largest Canada Games crowd in Winnipeg this week for any sport. Saskatchewan opened the scoring in the first when Brody Frerichs was able to scamper home on a Connor Sparks single to centre with an error committed on the same play. Ryan Olchoway then came up with a clutch, two-out single in the third that brought in Sparks to put Saskatchewan in front by a pair. Manitoba pulled to within one on Jordan Peck's two out RBI single in the sixth but Saskatchewan answered back with a run in the bottom of the inning before Tyler McWillie closed things out with a scoreless seventh. The marks Saskatchewan's first Canada Games baseball gold medal after the prairie province won silver in 1989.
