Capahas fall to Waterloo, Ill.
WATERLOO, Ill. -- The Waterloo (Ill.) Buds used a big seventh inning to rally past the visiting Plaza Tire Capahas 6-4 Wednesday night.
Plaza Tire (14-4) led 2-0 entering the bottom of the seventh inning as pitcher Josh Joiner had a two-hitter going.
But Waterloo reached Joiner for five hits and all six runs -- the Buds had seven of their total 10 hits in the frame -- to pull out the victory.
"Josh pitched a great game," Capahas manager Jess Bolen said. "In the seventh, they hit two balls in the sky that were just at the right twilight time that normally would be caught. Our outfielders couldn't see them and they dropped for doubles. I couldn't even see them, so it's hard to get on the players.
"If those two balls are caught, they don't score, but that's the way it goes. Overall, it was a good game and Waterloo always has a very good team."
Joiner struck out six and walked two in 6 1/3 innings as he allowed his first runs of the season.
Jamie McAlister finished up, allowing three hits in 1 2/3 innings, with no walks.
The Capahas had 12 hits, led by Lance Seasor and Bryan Kurt with three each. Robbie Moore and Eric Horstman both added two hits.
Plaza Tire scored single runs in the third, seventh, eighth and ninth innings.
The Capahas return to action Saturday in the Valmeyer (Ill.) tournament, playing Granite City (Ill.) at 11:30 a.m.
The eight-team tournament continues through the weekend and concludes wih a championship game on Monday in Valmeyer, Ill.
