Goldeyes trump Capitales in extra-innings

  • Print

The Winnipeg Goldeyes made the most of the Can-Am League's extra-innings rule on Sunday, scoring three runs in the top of the 11th inning to defeat the Quebec Capitales 9-7.

Goldeyes shortstop Tyler Kuhn, who made the last out in the 10th, was placed on second base to start the 11th, and the Goldeyes quickly loaded the bases when third baseman Josh Mazzola and first baseman Casey Haerther were hit by consecutive pitches. Left-fielder Ray Sadler then cleared the bases with a three-RBI triple to give Winnipeg a 9-6 lead.

Quebec gave the Goldeyes a scare in the bottom of the 11th, loading the bases after pinch runner Leondy Perez started the frame on second base, but relief pitcher Kyle Bellamy, in his third inning of relief, only allowed one run to score on a fielder's choice. Bellamy, who allowed two runs on three hits in three innings, got the win.

Sadler, who had a game-high four RBIs, gave the Goldeyes a 6-5 lead in the top of the ninth with a sacrifice fly before Capitales' second baseman Mike Provencher tied the game in the bottom of the ninth with a sac fly of his own. The Capitales loaded the bases following Provencher's fly ball, but Bellamy struck out third baseman Balbino Fuenmayor swinging to end the ninth. 

Sunday's victory earned the Fish a 2-1 win in their interleague series against Quebec and improved the Goldeyes' record to 21-13 on the season. The Goldeyes begin a four-game set against the Trois-Rivieres Aigles on Monday night.
