First win against Diamonds

It was not perfect on the defensive, but this time, the Voyageurs Saguenay (9-7) had the upper hand against the Diamonds of Quebec (11-5) and their pitcher Vincent Ruel in a duel disputed in front of a few hundred fans at the Richard-Desmeules Stadium. An Antoine Gervais single with the goals completed at the end of the eighth round allowed the Jonquiérois to celebrate after a 6-5 victory.

“Personally, it looked like a series game. Facing the Diamonds, it’s three games that end with a gap of one point. Our pitchers have been excellent in all three games, “Pierre René, who led the team in the absence of Martin Pouliot after the National Hockey League draft, said he is recruiting for the Washington Capitals. .

The visitors took advantage of the start of a defensive mistake to give a one-point cushion to their left-handed gunner, which did not last long. In their first offensive sequence, the Voyageurs ran nine batters, scoring four points. Ruel stopped the bleeding afterwards before leaving after five rounds of work and more than 90 shots on the clock. The Diamonds, leaders of the Sun Life division, scored two points in the third before creating the tie in sixth and take the lead early in the seventh inning, at the expense of Raphael John Leblanc, relieves Jean-Michel Tremblay.

THE DAILY, JEANNOT LÉVESQUE
The Jonquiérois always had a last chance at the bat and after a withdrawal, Yan-Éric Tremblay brought everyone back with a resounding strike in the left field drive. The inning came to an end on an extremely tight game at the first cushion with the tying point at third base, but the Diamonds and gunner Jonathan Landry could not escape on the extra end. “We had the execution in offensive. It was mean in defense. If we talk about the team, there was a lot of emotion and the guys never gave up. We may have had a bad pass half-innings in defense, but the guys came back into the box and immediately replied to the baton, “said Pierre René who also had to contend with a reduced alignment due to absentees and injuries.

“Everyone had a role to play at the bat and did it wonderfully,” he said, agreeing that this victory came just in time, before a pause of a few days before the next match, again facing the Diamonds at Richard-Desmeules Stadium, next Monday.
