Each of the Fertile Valley Baseball League, North Saskatchewan River Baseball League, and Coteau Hills Baseball League are moving closer to playoffs. July will see both league and provincial play as it's officially time for some high stakes action in the senior ranks.

In the FVBL, the Kindersley Cubs hosted the Rosetown Angels Thursday night in an exciting game at Flanagan Field. The Angels were smoking the ball all-night-long, emphasized by a three-run-homer and 5 RBI total from Jared Jagow, but the comeback Cubbies were in full force mounting some clutch runs for the victory.

The busy week started with three games on Tuesday, the Stallions beating the Raiders 5-1 in an all-Kindersley matchup, the Cubs winning 12-0 over Eatonia, and the Oyen Eagles beating the Kindersley Klippers 14-4. Rosetown would beat the Klippers 13-4 on Wednsday. Also on Thursday the Kindersley Stallions claimed a doubleheader against the Eatonia Wheat Kings.

The Kindersley Stallions and Oyen Eagles have an inside track on the top two seeds. The Cubs are currently holding down third place, with the Kindersley Raiders and Rosetown Angels behind them, the Eatonia Wheat Kings and Kindersley Klippers in the basement. 

According to the league website the FVBL's final scheduled game is July 11, that subject to change as the league looks to get playoffs underway around the mid-point of July. 

Local Leagues

Both the Wilkie Brewers and Unity Cardinals have been strong as of late in the NSRBL. The two west-central NSRBL teams met up last Wednesday, the Brewers taking down the Cardinals 9-7 in a good game.

Trailing behind only the undefeated North Battleford Beavers at 13-0, the Cardinals are 12-3 on the year following two wins this week against Standard Hill (12-2) Tuesday, and Oil City (7-5) on Thursday. The 5-10 Brewers split their latest week of action with a Tuesday win against Oil City 11-2, before falling in a tight game 9-8 to the Lloydminster Twins on Thursday. 

The league is now entering their final week of play. A few scheduled games are left, and a few rainouts will be made up as well with the last day of the season being July 10. 

As you can see above, teams in the Coteau Hills are into the playoffs. The Riverhurst Raiders beat the Kyle YellowJackets 5-0 to advance, and the Eston Rambers and Elrose Aces will faceoff on Monday in Elrose to decide the semi-final opponents for the first seed Beechy Breakers, and second seed Dinsmore U18's.

Senior provincials will be firing up across the next few weeks. See who's competing in the Baseball Saskatchewan competition, and where HERE.
