Goldeyes 6 Capitales 0

  • Print

The Winnipeg Goldeyes were leading in the top of the eighth but fans were flocking from their seats.

They didn't leaving Shaw Park disappointed. They were hiding in the concourse to watch the conclusion of the game against the Quebec Capitales as a heavy rain pelted the ball park. And it's a good thing they didn't leave, because that's when the Goldeyes' offensive show began.

Up 2-0, the Fish notched four runs in the inning. Left-fielder Fehlandt Lentini was driven in by second baseman Nick Liles, then Tyler Graham and Amos Ramon hit back-to-back homers.

GAMEBREAKERS

Lentini had two runs, two hits and two RBI in three at-bats.

Jeff Garcia was solid on the mound. He pitched seven innings, walked four batters, struck out two and allowed only one hit. His record goes to 4-1.

KEY PLAY

After a scoreless four-and-a-half innings, the Goldeyes hit the scoreboard.

First baseman Casey Haerther started the scoring drive. He raced to second on an error by Capitales first baseman Jean-Luc Blaquiere. Goldeyes designated hitter Leonard Davis advanced Haerther to third base with only one out. Lentini decided to make it easy on his teammate and cranked the ball over the wall in left, so he and Haerther could take leisurely strolls home.

FISH WRAP

"We knew going in they were going to attack the strike zone. We were kind of thinking we would be more aggressive because (Quebec starter Kyle Gelinas) wasn't walking a lot of guys. We wanted to try and get on him early. That can either help or it can create some quick innings, so we kind of just rolled through those first few. It was nice the way we got them on and then LD (Leonard Davis) got them over for me and I just had to get a fly ball or a sac fly. It all worked out," said Lentini after the game about the team's first run.

The Fish announced the signing of left-handed pitcher Gabe Aguilar. The 23-year-old recently completed his four-year career at the University of New Mexico. He made 29 appearances as a senior this spring and went 5-2 with a 2.58 ERA and three saves.

ON THE HOOK

The Goldeyes will play the second in a three game series against the Quebec Capitales tonight at Shaw Park. The first pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. They'll finish the series with a Sunday afternoon game at 1:30 p.m.
