Eighth-inning rally paces ThunderBolts win

Box Score

CRESTWOOD, IL – After trailing for most of the game, the ThunderBolts launched a six-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning to come away with a 7-4 win over the Quebec Capitales at Ozinga Field Sunday afternoon.

Bryan Ketchie got off to a strong start in his first outing of the year for the Bolts (2-2). He did not allow a run over the first three innings.

Quebec got on the board in the fourth. Jeffry Parra singled and TJ White hit a two-run homer.

Dan Robinson tripled to lead off the bottom of the sixth and Manny Garcia brought him home on a sacrifice fly to cut the deficit in half but Quebec added two more over the next few innings. David Glaude hit an RBI single and Jonathan Lacroix hit a sacrifice fly to make the Quebec lead 4-1 heading into the bottom of the eighth.

That’s when the Bolts’ bats broke out. Jace Mercer drew a leadoff walk and Robinson followed with a long home run. Garcia, representing the tying run, hit a double and Rob Weissheier’s RBI single scored the tying run. Jairus Richards was hit by a pitch to put two on with two out and back-to-back singles from Brynn Martinez and Payton Robertson brought home three more runs to give the ThunderBolts a 7-4 win.

Justin Miller (1-0) was on the mound for an inning and picked up his first win. Stephen Knapp (0-1) allowed three runs and took the loss.
