Enns provides the heroics as the Mils push Mavs to brink with 3-2 win in Game 3

The Melville Millionaires have pushed the Medicine Hat Mavericks to the brink of elimination after East St. Paul, Manitoba native Tyler Enns (pictured above)  hit a walk-off single in the Bottom of the 9th to cash in AJ Florence from 3rd to give the Mils a 3-2 Game 3 victory and a 2 games to 1 series lead in the Best of 5 series.

There was no Millionaire that had more than 1 hit, but Ben Villafuerte got the other RBI for the Mils. Jaime Paxton turned in yet another outstanding playoff performance on the mound for the Mils as he went 6 shutout innings while allowing 5 hits, walked 3 and struck out 2 but he got the no decision. Jeremy Newton came in to work the 8th and 9th innings giving 1 run on 1 hit, walked 1 and struck out a single batter to get his 2nd win of the postseason for the Mils.

The Mils have a chance to win their first league title since 2002, when they split it with Moose Jaw, with a win tonight in Game 4. First pitch is at 7:05 from Pirie Field.
