It was a true team effort, with all positions players except Matt Kavanaugh (and he is excused for his recently hot bat) getting at least one hit. And who the heck is Mike Mooney? Well, as long as he is with us, I don't care! Mooney batted 5th and jump-started the offense with a 3-run blast in the first and looked solid patrolling centre field. He went 3 for 4 at the plate and scored twice himself; a nice addition.
In a beautiful Victoria evening (finally!), it was a game of longball with T-Mac, Mooney, Arhart (who went 4-4) and Rios all hammering round trippers. The Caps made it interesting in the late going scoring 9 runs in the 7th and 8th, but Brandon Villafuerte did just enough to preserve the win. Hopefully this shows the winning way, and if the hitting picks up pitching and vice versa, many wins will follow.
