Capitales have way with Goldeyes
The Winnipeg Goldeyes' comeback bid fell short Sunday afternoon and the result was another road loss against the Quebec Capitales.
The Fish (25-28) fell 7-4 despite belting seven of their 11 hits in the seventh and eighth innings and scoring four runs to rally from a 7-0 deficit.
Fish slugger Josh Mozzola had a chance to even the score in the top of the ninth, but he popped up to Capitales catcher Royce Consigli, stranding two base runners. Mazzola and Tyler Graham each had three hits.
The Capitales took three of four games in the series. The Goldeyes begin a three-game series in Trois-Rivieres against the Aigles Monday night.
Lefty Pete Gehle allowed just five hits and two earned runs over seven innings but his Goldeyes teammates failed to provide sufficient run support, with the result being a 3-2 win for the Quebec Capitales.
Royce Consigli slammed a solo shot in the third to open the scoring for the Capitales, but the Goldeyes responded in the fourth with Tyler Graham scoring on a Ray Sadler single.
The Goldeyes managed just six hits in the game with Graham leading the way, going 2-for 4.
