QUEBEC'S FUENMAYOR NAMED PLAYER OF THE YEAR
96 RBI propel Capitales INF to top honors

Quebec Capitales INF Balbino Fuenmayor (pictured) has been a model of production and consistency throughout the 2014 season. As a result of his dominant season, Fuenmayor has been voted the Can-Am League Player of the Year for 2014.

Fuenmayor has been far and away the best run-producer in the Can-Am League. His 96 RBI not only lead the league, they place him 25 RBI above the next-highest total.

BIG EIGHTH INNING PROPELS BOULDERS TO WIN
The Boulders beat the Jackals to tie things up on top of the standings.

The Boulders were trailing 3-1 heading into the seventh inning when they began their comeback. In the bottom of the seventh, C Marcus Nidiffer led things off with a solo home run and in the eighth 1B Jerod Edmondson did the same thing. Nidiffer scored on a single from SS Junior Arrojo later in the inning and in the next at bat, 2B Matt Nandin (pictured) singled home another pair of runs.

Elsewhere, the Capitales beat the Aigles 7-5.

JACKALS SWEEP CAPITALES TO TAKE OVER TOP SPOT IN STANDINGS
New Jersey wins seventh game in a row

The New Jersey Jackals complete the four-game sweep as they downed the Quebec Capitales, 4-3. New Jersey C Tony Caldwell (pictured) and CF Alonzo Harris each had two hits on the night and scored a run. Jackals reliever Anthony Ferrara tossed 2 2/3 shutout innings to collect the victory and improved his mark to 5-5 on the season.

In other Can-Am action, Trois-Rivieres downed Rockland, 3-1. With the victory by the Jackals coupled with the loss by Rockland, New Jersey takes over the top spot in the Can-Am League standings.

CAN-AM LEAGUE LIKLEY TO SEE PLAYERS PROMOTED
Independent Baseball Insider By Bob Wirz Vol. 12, No. 25, August 28, 2014

It is tricky trying to read the minds of major league personnel bosses even if a player has posted impressive minor league statistics, but it is difficult to imagine Minnesota not bringing back first baseman-outfielder Chris Colabello (Worcester, MA and Nashua, NH, Can-Am League), especially since he is on the 40-man roster so a vacancy will not need to be created.

Toronto seems likely to bring back reliever Steve Delabar (Brockton), an All-Star Game selection one year ago, to see how much he has bounced back by spending the second half of the season at Triple-A Buffalo, NY

JACKALS WIN SIXTH STRAIGHT BEHIND STANIEWICZ
Starter Zach Staniewicz allowed one run in 8 2/3 innings

The New Jersey Jackals won their sixth straight game, beating Quebec, 4-1.

New Jersey right-hander Zach Staniewicz pitched into the ninth inning, tossing 8 1/3 innings of one-run ball. The 6-foot-3 Hinsdale, Ind., native allowed just two hits and three walks, striking out six.

In other league action, Rockland beat the Aigles, 4-1.

BROWN GOES DEEP TO SINK BOULDERS
Aigles CF Steve Brown drove in all three Trois-Rivieres runs

Aigles CF Steve Brown (pictured) homered on an 0-2 pitch in the bottom of the ninth, and Trois-Rivieres walked off on Rockland, winning 3-2. The game-winning two-run homer, which came with one out in the ninth, was Brown's 11th this season.

He batted 2-for-4 Tuesday night, driving in all three Aigles runs. Brown drove in Trois-Rivieres's first run on a fourth-inning RBI single.

Elsewhere, New Jersey beat Quebec, 3-2.
