Kalian Sams homers, but Québec loses Game 3 in CanAm-Final

AUGUSTA, Sussex County, New Jersey (USA) - Kalian Sams hit another homerun for Les Capitales de Québec in Game 3 of the best-of-five Championship Series of the CanAmLeague on Friday-evening (September 14) against Sussex County Miners, but the team lost 7-6. Game 4 will be played on Saturday.

On Wednesday-evening, Québec lost the opener, 7-3. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but then rained out. Québec then won Game 2 on Thursday, 4-3.

At Skylands Stadium, Québec opened the score with two runs in the top of the second inning on a double by Maxx Tissenbaum and a single by Brad Antchak.

In the bottom of the third, Sussex County answered with four runs. With two outs and the bases loaded, Audy Ciriaco delivered a baseclearing, 3-run double and later scored himself on a single by Daniel Mateo.

In the top of the fifth, it was Québec that scored four runs to take the lead for the second time. With one out, Yordan Manduley reached on an error and TJ White doubled. Hereafter, Kalian Sams homered to put Québec ahead, 5-4. For Sams, this was his fifth homerun in the postseason. Next hitter James McOwen doubled and scored on a single by Zach Wilson to make it a 6-4 score.

The lead was not enough, as Sussex County came alongside in the eighth inning. Daniel Mateo led off with a homerun off of reliever Wendell Floranus, who had just entered the game. With one out, the Curaçao-born Floranus got a baserunner and was relieved by Mike Hepple. He saw the tying run being scored when a single by next hitter Christian Correa was followed by an outfield-error. In 2015, Floranus pitched for the Netherlands National Team in the Premier12 in Taiwan.

Sussex County scored the winning run in the ninth inning. With one out and runners on first and second base, Will Dennis relieved Hepple. He was greeted with a walk-off single from Daniel Mateo, who was 3-for-5 and batted in three runs.
