QUBEC, QC- The Windy City ThunderBolts won the second game of a three game series in Quebec Saturday evening, 4-2 at Stade Canac.

Shortly after the home run, Quebec (18-19) removed starting pitcher Abdiel Saldana, who threw 4.2 innings, enduring one run on two hits, while striking out six and walking one. 


Capitales shortstop Kyle Crowl led off the bottom of the sixth inning by smashing his seventh home run of the season to dead center field knotting the game at 1-1.


In the top of the seventh inning with two outs, Bolts first baseman Micah Yonamine singled to left field. Shortly after, Yonamine stole second base following a fly out by Waite. Left fielder Paul Coumuolos drove a line drive RBI single to right field for a 2-1 Windy City lead entering the bottom of the seventh inning. 


Quickly, the Capitales clawed back in the game.  A one out, four pitch walk off Schmitt and back to back singles tied the game 2-2 off the bat of Jordan Siket. Cal Djuraskovic came in to relieve Schmitt and struck out both batters faced in the bottom of the seventh inning.


Cal Djuraskovic (1-0) earned the win striking out two of the three batters he faced.


The ThunderBolts struck the big fly in the top of the eighth inning to take the lead. Following a Jake Boone single, ThunderBolts center fielder Bren Spillane towered his second two-run big fly of the series and team-leading seventh of the season, putting Windy City on top 4-2 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning.
