The bottom of the seventh inning was no different than the rest of the tournament for an 18-year-old baseball star from southeast Saskatchewan.
With the score tied 0-0, a runner on second, and two outs, Carnduff's Carter Beck drove an 0-1 pitch for a double, moving Cam Marshak to third base. Boston Bast then singled to drive Marshak, as Saskatchewan beat Quebec 1-0 for the bronze medal at the Baseball Canada Cup Monday in Regina.
Beck's double was his second knock of the game. The outfielder hit a lofty. 444 through eight games, including three doubles, two triples, and a home run. He reached base at a .516 clip, and had an on-base-plus-slugging percentage of 1.331.
