The Capitals let the Slammers slip away

The Quebec Capitales were never able to make up the significant deficit they had taken in their game against the Joliet Slammers on Wednesday, losing by the score of 5 to 2, at Duly Field.

The representatives of the Capitale-Nationale in the Frontier League tried a futile comeback in the ninth inning when they trailed 5-0. T.J. White finally put the visitors on the score with his second home run of the campaign, a hit in solo in center field.

Jonathan Lacroix added a run with a single to the right that allowed James Smibert, brought in as backup runner, to cross the plate.

The start of the game was difficult for Capitals pitcher Miguel Cienfuegos (0-1). The Quebecer allowed the first two batters to come against him to reach the cushions. Matt McGarry cleaned up on his arrival at bat by hitting a three-run homer.

Cienfuegos did better afterwards by not allowing the Slammers to increase their lead. He was pulled from the mound after six innings allowing five hits and two walks.

Without answers against the southpaw, the Joliet, Illinois team quickly found some against reliever Stephen Knapp. Matt Burch got to second base with a double and Kyle Jacobsen brought him back to the bench with another homer.

The Slammers' victory (2-4) went to the record of Kenny Ogg (1-1), who delivered quite a performance. In six innings against the 24-year-old Gunner, the Capitals (3-2) managed just one strike to safety and four players were struck out.

The two teams will conclude their three-game series on Thursday morning. Quebec had won the first duel 12 to 5 on Tuesday.
