Saturday they weren't able to get out of it.

The Saskatoon Yellow Jackets led 7-1 after four innings and cruised to a 9-4 win over Moose Jaw in Western Major Baseball League play.

The two teams will meet again Sunday in Saskatoon.

It was a rough start for Express lefty Rusty Edwards who gave up eight hits in 3 2/3 innings, but wasn't helped by an early error.

The Jackets used a walk and three singles to get a rally going in the fourth, but an error led a trio of unearned runs after Bryan Heward hit a two-run triple. The Jackets scored five runs in the inning.

That was enough for Saskatoon's Adam Prashad who pitched a complete game. Prashad allowed 11 hits, but only two earned runs.

The Express scored three runs in the ninth. Danny Lokesak hit a double to drive him Bryce Crosbie,

and Aidan Stinnett singled home Derek Cornell.

Saskatoon made four errors on the night, but the Express couldn't take advantage. Moose Jaw rolled three double plays and only made one error.

Zach Shelstad and Connor Keating came on in relief for the Express who gave 17-year-old catcher the seventh inning on the mound before middle infielder Drew Danzeisen pitched the eighth to give the bullpen some relief. Warken didn't allow a hit, struck out one and walked two, while Danzeisen gave up a walk and no hits in his inning.
