Caps bottle up the Seals

Now here's an ugly line... 0 runs, 4 hits, 2 errors, 6 men left on base. Tough to pull out a victory with those numbers...

The Capitals rode some rock solid starting and relief pitching from Alexander Francisco and Yosandy Ibanez to an 8-0 thumping of the Seals Saturday evening at Royal Athletic. Caps first baseman Tom Collaro was a one-man wrecking crew, matching the Seals team with 4 hits of his own, while driving in 5 runs with a pair of home runs.

Seals starter Jeff Duda was unable to build upon the success he had in his previous start, and lasted only 3 1/3 innings giving up the first 5 runs of the game. Newcomer Mike Mooney, who thrilled the home crowd with his 3 for 4, 1 HR game on Friday, ended up 0 for 3 with 2 Ks.

The Seals hope to sleep this one off, and return to the park for the Father's Day rubber match Sunday afternoon at 1:30.
