The Moose Jaw Padres saw their season come to an end in the Qu’Appelle Valley Baseball League on Thursday night.

The Padres dropped a 13-4 game to the Regina Trappers at Ross Wells Park, losing out in two games in their division semifinal series.

"One bad pitch makes a tough game when there's a grand slam, it's hard to come back from that, we tried our best, had a little late rally, but it wasn't enough," said Padres catcher Brett Walchuk.

Regina struck for two runs in the first inning, added three more in the second and another two in the third inning to jump out to a 7-0 lead.

The Padres struck back in the bottom of the third as four straight singles led to four run coming around to score to make it a three-run game after three.

The Trappers added one more run in the fifth, but a grand slam in the seventh inning put the game out of reach.

The loss brought to end a strong season for the Padres, who posted an 11-6 record in the regular season to finish in third place in the QVBL’s Art Berard Division.

"That was one of our highest finishes, we've been gaining over the last couple of years and we're excited about Westerns coming up, the team is finding its hitting groove," said Walchuk.

As Walchuk mentioned, the season isn't quite over for the Padres as they will be playing host to the top teams from Western Canada coming up next week for the 2018 Western Canadian Senior Men's AA Tier 1 Championship.

Walchuk said it should be an exciting weekend, "It's pretty much the highest baseball that old guys like us can play," he said. "There will be one team from B.C, two from Manitoba and two from Saskatchewan in the tournament."

The Western Canadian Championship hits the field from Aug. 17-19 at Ross Wells Park.
