The Mitchell Expos earned silver medals at Baseball Manitoba's Provincial 11U AA championship this past Sunday at Optimist Park in Winnipeg.

The Expos dropped a hard fought 6-5 decision to the Bonivital White Sox in the championship game.

Mitchell and Bonivital needed extra innings to decide the 2022 provincial champion.

The two teams were tied 2-2 after six innings.

The Expos took the lead with three runs in the top of the seventh but the White Sox rallied for four runs in the bottom of the inning to claim the provincial title.

Mitchell lost its round robin opener 9-4 to Bonivital and then beat North Winnipeg 6-1: edged Morden 3-2 and beat Wawanesa 16-8.

The Expos had a busy Sunday as they downed Charleswood 12-6 and then beat the Macdonald Yankees 19-14 to earn a berth in the final.

Clayton Dreger asked Mitchell coach Lawney Penner how it felt to be the second best 11U AA team in the province
