With their backs against the wall, the Charlesbourg Alouettes forced a seventh and final game in the Quebec Junior Elite Baseball League finals series Wednesday at Parc Henri Casault, defeating Royal de Repentigny 6-5 in the sixth. .
The Alouettes showed character entering their sixth at bat trailing 4-3. Thomas Larochelle and Philippe Hamelin each drove in a double at that point, then Raphaël Picard ended the push with a productive single.
However, Royal came very close to regaining the lead in the seventh inning, first closing the gap to one before filling in with two outs. However, Samuel Campeau was unable to get the ball to safety, ending the game.
In this matchup, the three-point bat was the main focus, as the Alouettes did it twice, in the first and sixth innings, while the visitors did it in the second offense.
Both teams will now head to Repentigny at the Flavio Prata Stadium where the winner will be crowned the playoff winner.
