After taking one on the chin at the hands of the Regina Blue Jays last week, the Moose Jaw Canucks returned the favour with an 11-1 beating at Ross Wells Park on Tuesday night.

"They're one of the better teams in the league, so it's nice to see how we stack up against them and its even nicer when you get a win against them," said starting pitcher Tysen Jordison after the win.

Jordison threw a complete game, striking out six and allowing just one run on six hits and one walk to pick-up the win on the mound.

It was the kind of performance that the Canucks needed from their veteran pitcher.

"I was just trying to execute first-pitch strikes and using the secondary pitches and always have good defence behind me, and Taylor Hicke called a good game behind the plate and I just felt really comfortable up there tonight," said Jordison.

The Canucks struck early scoring four runs in the first inning. After picking up one run in the third inning, Moose Jaw put the game out of reach in the fourth inning with six runs to go in front by ten.

Jordison sat down the Blue Jays in order in the fifth inning to finish the game.

Quincy Johnson was 2-for-2 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI to lead the way offensively for the Canucks. Hicke was 1-for-2 with two RBI in the win.

"We find when we have success, we're hitting the bats well, we're picking up ground balls, we're pitching well, so if we can stay consistent in those three facets, we'll usually come out with the win," said Jordison.

The Canucks and Blue Jays will have a rematch again on Thursday night in the Queen City. First pitch is at 6 p.m. at Pacer Park.

Mallards Down Buffaloes

The Moose Jaw Mallards had a good night in the Queen City on Tuesday as they cruised to a 12-4 win over the Regina Buffaloes in Baseball Regina's Bantam AA action.

Kaedyn Banilevic had four hits for the Mallards in the win, while Kyle Duncan and Kane Kuffner drove in three runs each.

Josh Auger pitched four innings on the mound, striking out four, to earn the win for the Mallards.

The win improved the Mallards' record to 7-6 on the year. They return to the field on Wednesday night when they travel to Regina to take on the White Sox at 6:15 p.m.

Prairie Dogs Roll Past Expos

The Moose Jaw Prairie Dogs scored 11 runs in the first two innings and rolled to a 15-2 win over the Regina Expos in the Baseball Regina's Mosquito AA Division.

Brogan Bowes had three hits and seven RBI in the win for the Prairie Dogs, while Janzen Lamey finished four RBI.

Rylan Caplette-Tarrant struck out five over two innings, while Wesley Olson had four strikeouts in two innings.

The Prairie Dogs are 10-1 on the year. Moose Jaw will face the White Butte Broncos Black on Thursday.
