Haves, have-nots becoming clearer in NSRBL season

The NSRBL baseball season made it to week three this week, and already there are a few teams standing out at the top of the standings — and a few that are not.

Following this weekend’s play, the Kindersley Stallions had the most wins so far, with a 4-1 record. Meanwhile, three teams had three wins apiece: Standard Hill had a perfect 3-0 record, Border City had a 3-1 record and Unity Junior Cardinals had three wins and three losses.

On the stats sheet, Brock Harrison of Standard Hill led the way in batting in the early going with a .667 average in three games, just ahead of Mervin’s Ryland McNinch at .636. Unity Jr. Cardinals’ Tanner Huber led the way in pitching with a 0.62 ERA in two games.

In notable contests over the past week, the Beavers lost 7-6 to Macklin on June 15, and then hammered Meadow Lake 12-9 on June 17 for their first win of the season. Meanwhile the Battlefords Trappers lost to Unity 1-0 on June 16 but rebounded with a 6-0 win over Wilkie June 18. The Trappers stood at 2-2 going into this week’s play.
