Updated: Goosney tosses another gem as Capitals sweep Barons


“There you go Goose, now don’t fool it up.”

Those were the words St. John’s Capitals veteran Gerald Butt shouted to Scott Goosney after the defending champions pushed four runs across in the fourth inning of Game 4 of the provincial senior A baseball final Saturday in Corner Brook.

Goosney didn’t let him down.

The Pasadena native tossed a nifty five-hitter for this third straight win of the best-of-seven final as the Capitals downed the Corner Brook Barons 6-2 to win the series in four games.

Goosney, who only allowed two walks and marked up three strikeouts in the complete game, got the nod as the tournament’s top pitcher and Most Valuable Player.

The Barons held a slim 2-1 advantage in the early going, but the Capitals broke the game open in the fourth inning by scoring four runs on four hits and two costly errors to take a lead they would hold as Goosney shut the door in the final three innings.

Bernie Madden, who had a hit in Game 4 and played solid at third, won the batting crown going 7-for-14 for an impressive .500 batting average over the four games.

James Walsh was the top hitter for the Capitals in Game 4 with a double and three singles in an unblemished 4-for-4 efffort, while Brent Power drove in a run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Capitals defending its crown on the road.

Mike O’Neill got the nod as player of the game for the Barons with a double in three at-bats and a couple of nice defensive plays at second base. Travis Taylor delivered an RBI single as the Barons could only muster a handful of singles off Goosney who appeared to get stronger as the thoughts of hoisting of the championship trophy got closer.
