The Sherbrooke Expos steamrolled their opponents last week to take sole possession of second place in the Ligue de Baseball Majeur du Québec’s Louisville Slugger division.
It started with a dominant performance over the Saint-Jérôme Cardinals last Tuesday. The Expos crushed the Cardinals 11-2 on the road. Sherbrooke’s batters were too much to handle for Saint-Jérôme starting pitcher Gabriel De Lisi.
The Expos exploded for five runs in the fourth inning, with Corentin Boucher leading the charge thanks to a three-run home run. Sherbrooke also capitalized on an error, and a single from Jonathan Raymond.
There were several more errors that led to points on the board. And team manager Bruno Laurin capped of a wild night with a single in the seventh inning. Sherbrooke pitcher Matthew Adams-Whittaker picked up his first win in 2021. He allowed two runs and seven hits.
