The Winnipeg Goldeyes continue to have trouble on their 10-game road trip. While they only let the Trois-Rivières Aigles score in one inning, they gave up nine runs in that inning to fall 9-3.
As they hit the halfway mark of the road trip, the Goldeyes are now 1-4, and sit 6 1/2 games back of the North Division-leading Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks.
The Goldeyes got things started relatively early, with two runs coming in the third inning. Pitcher Edgar Osuna had just given up one hit after four innings in his debut for the Goldeyes.
Things changed in the fifth, as Trois-Rivières chased Osuna from the mound after he gave up a hit and five walks. He was replaced by Gabe Aguilar, who gave up six hits. The Aigles sent 14 men to the plate in the inning, ending up with seven hits and all nine of their runs.
The Goldeyes added one more run in the eighth inning, but by then it was too little too late.
Game 2 of the three-game series goes tomorrow night — the pre-game show on TSN 1290 with Paul Edmonds begins at 5:30 p.m.
