Champions Defeat Jackals in Walk-Off Fashion, 3-2
Second baseman Maikol Gonzalez was the hero for Ottawa tonight as his single brought home two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Champions a 3-2 walk-off win over New Jersey. The Jackals had just scored a run in the top frame to take a 2-1 lead but could not finish off the contest as Ottawa notched their first win of the season.
Gonzalez had two hits in five at-bats along with the two RBI while DH Leonardo Reginattowas a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with a run scored.
Champions reliever Austin Glorius, despite giving up the run in the top of the ninth, picked up the victory. Along with the run, Glorius allowed a walk and two hits and struck out two batters.
Second baseman Andrew Dundon went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the loss for the Jackals.
