The Portage Padres are in the driver's seat of their first-round series with the defending champion Carberry Royals. Portage came out with a fury on offence in game one, coming away with a 16-1 victory. Infielder Robby Moar says they are feeling good knowing they have the chance to close out the best-of-three series in game two.

"It feels good, we've had a lot of battles with them in the past but we know this thing is far from over," Moar explains. "Hopefully, we can play Wednesday but regardless, we're going to have to be ready to go for tomorrow because we'll be in for a tough test going to Carberry."

Moar notes while their bats were on fire, the defence was the biggest factor in the win.

"It was just one of those games where everything kind of came together for us," Moar continues. "Garrett Maly and Joey Moffatt took care of the pitching as they usually do. Ryan Botterill and Chris Reykdal made some nice double-plays for us. Everything just came together pretty well, and we played a solid game."

The infielder says they aren't expecting to score 16 runs in game two but adds if they focus on their play in the field, he knows they will be in the game. Despite the huge win, the Royals are still the defending champions and shouldn't be taken lightly. Moar outlines what they'll have to watch out for when they travel to Carberry for game two.

"They are deep, they hit the ball really well, and they have some good pitching too that I'm expecting to see in game two," says Moar. "There will be some challenges. It won't be easy at all. We'll have to be ready to go and ready to play our best."

Game two is currently set for 7:00 tomorrow in Carberry but could be rescheduled due to wet weather conditions.
