The Quebec Capitales pushed across three runs in the eighth inning to rally for a 5-3 win over the visiting New York Boulders on Thursday at Stade Canac in Quebec City.

The victory completed a sweep of the three-game series for the Capitales.

The Capitales entered the home half of the eighth trailing 3-2, however they tied the game when T.J. White led off the frame with a home run, his 10th of the year, off Dan Goggin, the Boulders’ third pitcher of the night.

Kyle Crowl then worked out a walk before Jonathan Lacroix’s attempted sacrifice bunt was misplayed to put runners on first and second. Josh McAdams followed with another bunt, this one fielded by Goggin, who threw wildly to third base, allowing Crowl to score with the lead run and putting runners on second and third.

Blake Berry’s one-hopper back to Goggin resulted in Lacroix being thrown out at the plate, but the Capitales picked up an insurance run when Reece Yeargain’s chopper to third left Boulders’ third baseman Austin Dennis with only a play at first as McAdams scored to give Quebec a 5-3 lead.

Quebec got on the scoreboard in the home half of the first when White’s grounder was misplayed by Dennis third, allowing David Glaude, who had led off the inning with a walk, to score from third base.

New York answered with two runs in the fourth against Joel Huertas, the Quebec starter. Gian Martellini led off by reaching on an error by White at third base. After Giovanni Garbella struck out, Dennis singled to put runners on first and second. Chris Kwitzer’s groundout to second moved the runners up a base for Francisco Del Valle, who singled to score both and out the Boulders ahead 2-1.

New York increased their advantage to 3-1 with a run in the fifth against Quebec reliever Ian Codina.

David Vinsky led off the frame with a double and advanced to third on a Jake MacKenzie fly ball to right. Vinsky then scored Yeargain, the Capitales’ catcher, could not corral a Codina breaking ball.

Jonathan Lacroix’s solo home run, his first of the year, cut the Quebec deficit to 3-2 in the sixth.

The Boulders received a quality start from Robby Rowland, who went six innings and allowed six hits and two runs while walking two and striking out four. Ryan Munoz followed with a scoreless seventh inning before giving way to Goggin, who was tagged with the loss as he fell to 1-1 on the year.

Henry Omana, who tossed scoreless seventh and eighth innings picked up the victory for Quebec, improving to 1-1 on the season.

Frank Moscatiello pitched a scoreless ninth to register his first save of the year for the Capitales.

Huertas, Codina, Franklin Parra, Omana and Moscatiello teamed up to surrender only five hits to the Boulders in the Quebec win.
