No fewer than six pitchers filled the mound for the crowd favorites, and none of them worked more than two and two-thirds of an innings. That bet appears to have paid off as only Alex Mack conceded a homer to Pedro Gonzalez late in the game.

Andrew Hammond (1-0) scored his first win of the season.

David Vinsky put the game out of reach for the Capitals in the seventh inning with a three-run homer from Joel Huertas. Shortly before, Steven Figueroa had made it 3-0 with a two-run single.

John Witkowski (3-1) only allowed one deserved run from seven hits in three innings, but took the backhand.

Patrick Scalabrini’s men won the first duel of the three-game series on Tuesday.

The Eagles crash late in the game

In Ottawa, the Trois-Rivières Aigles couldn’t resist a shove from the Titans late in the game, bending their spine 9 to 7.

The crowd favorites scored three runs in the sixth inning before adding two runs in the seventh to seal the game. Rodrigo Oroczo had an excellent game, driving in four runs and hitting a homer.

James Bradwell (1-2) added a loss to his tally, but Sam Belisle-Springer struggled as a starting pitcher. He allowed seven earned runs with 10 hits in five and a half innings.

Gavin Sonnier (3-0) added a win to his tally while Kevin Escorcia made his eighth save of the season.
