Trois-Rivieres Ties Series with 5-0 Victory
Starting pitcher Domenic Mazza and two relievers combined on a six-hit shutout as Trois-Rivieres downed New Jersey, 5-0. The win by the Aigles evened the best-of-five semifinal series at a game apiece.
Mazza was terrific tonight as he went seven strong innings allowing a walk and six hits while striking out seven in a 99-pitch performance. The bullpen duo of Cortland Cox and Garrett Mundell completed the final two frames and combined gave up a walk and struck out three batters. Mazza earned his first postseason victory.
Trois-Rivieres collected 10 hits in the game and was led by LF Alberth Martinez who went 3-for-4 with a walk and two RBIs. Aigles SS Tucker Nathans tallied a pair of runs in a 2-for-5 night while 2B David Glaude added a two-run home run in the fifth inning and went 1-for-4.
The rest of the series will now be held at Stade Stereo+ in Trois-Rivieres. Game three is slated for Friday night beginning at 7:00 PM. The Aigles will send Chris Murphy to the mound while the Jackals go with Justin Brantley.
