Goldeyes trounced 10-1 by Capitales

  • Print

After starting the season strong, the Winnipeg Goldeyes have hit a rut. The team lost the opening game of a four-game series (and 10-game road trip) Thursday, getting blown out 10-1 by the Quebec Capitales in Quebec City.

Thursday's loss was the fifth in a row for the Goldeyes, who are now five games behind the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks for top spot in the American Association's North Division.

Quebec went up early and never looked back, scoring five runs in the second inning before adding two more in the fourth and three more in the fifth. The onslaught included a grand slam home run in the second inning by Capitales second-baseman Jonathan Malo. The Goldeyes' lone run was scored in the third inning — they only had three hits on the night.

Goldeyes starter Justin Garcia didn't even last two full innings before being replaced by Gabe Aguilar, who lasted 4 1/3 innings and gave up seven hits and six runs.

The Goldeyes will have a chance to redeem themselves Friday night, when they face the Capitales in the second of the four-game series.
