The Can-Am League’s Quebec Capitales defeated the Brockton Rox last night in an exhibition game played at The Ballpark in Old Orchard Beach (ME).  It was the first professional baseball game played at the park since the former Triple-A home of the Maine Guides was saved and revived by community volunteers.  The teams face off for second game tonight, but not before a baseball clinic at The Ballpark with former MLB pitcher “Oil Can” Boyd from 10:00 a.m. to noon.

CAPITALES SHUT OUT BROCKTON IN PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL’S RETURN TO OLD ORCHARD

PRESS RELEASE – Quebec LF Alex Nunez went 3-for-5 with two runs scored as the Quebec Capitales defeated the Brockton Rox, 6-0, in a Can-Am League exhibition game at The Ballpark in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

The game was a pitchers’ duel early, with Quebec starter Michel Simard and Brockton’s Wayne Lundgren each tossing three scoreless innings. The Capitales broke the deadlock in the fourth, grinding out three runs on two hits, three walks and two Brockton errors. Quebec then added another run in the fifth on a sacrifice fly by DH Patrick Deschenes, and a pair in the sixth on CF Goefrey Tomlinson’s two-run blast to right field.

It was more than enough offense for the Capitales’ pitching staff, as Simard, Karl Gelinas, Andrew Albers and Adam Arnold held the Brockton offense to five hits, four of them singles. On Quebec’s side, Nunez and Tomlinson both had multiple-hit evenings, with 1B Rene Leveret, Dechenes and 3B Jeremy Hunt also registering base knocks. 3B Phillip Cuadrado had a double for the Rox.

The game marked the first professional contest at the recently-renovated stadium since 1988, when the Maine Phillies concluded the fifth and final season of Triple-A International League play at the park. Over the last three years, local volunteers have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix up the stadium.
