Goldeyes stall at 999 victories

  • Print

11The Fish tried to find a pitching groove for much of the second half of the game. Pete Gehle started and went 5 1/3 innings, allowing five hits, one run, three walks with a strikeout. The Goldeyes then went through five more pitchers, including newly-signed Gabe Aguilar. Reliever Brendan Lafferty allowed six earned runs and his flawless 0.00 ERA rocketed to 3.68.

The Capitales opened the scoring in the first, but the Goldeyes sprinkled in single runs in both the third and sixth to take a 2-1 lead. In the third, centre-fielder Tyler Graham scored on an Amos Ramon double and in the sixth Josh Mazzola crossed the plate.

The Capitales regained the lead in the seventh, scoring twice. Capitales third baseman Jonathan Malo hit a single that brought Patrick D'Aoust home and a couple of at-bats later a Sebastien Boucher single plated Carlos Willoughby. The Capitales didn't look back from there.

óó GAMEBREAKERS

Capitales centre-fielder Sebastien Boucher made the Goldeyes pitching crew shiver. The lefty finished the night with three hits, three RBIs and a run scored.

Lentini attempted to gain some momentum for the Goldeyes throughout the game, but he couldn't do it alone. The outfielder was on base numerous times, but found himself stranded in scoring position. He was also called out sliding into home plate in the fourth inning.

óó KEY PLAY

Boucher hit a ninth-inning single that scored Carlos Willoughby and Jeff Helps to make the score 5-2. The Capitales added four more runs.

óó FISH WRAP

"We shot ourselves in the foot. We didn't hit with men in scoring position and when you don't do that you don't grab momentum and the other team is going to get it in the next half of the inning. Finally, the bullpen bent a little bit there in the ninth inning. We had our chances and we probably should have won today if we did a little bit better of a job with situational hitting." -- Goldeyes manager Rick Forney

óó ON THE HOOK

The Goldeyes will complete their three-game series with the Capitales this afternoon. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. They will then make a short road trip to St. Paul to take on the Saints in a three-game series, followed by a four-game homestand against the Lincoln Saltdogs at Shaw Park.
