It took well over four hours and two extra innings to decide a winner, but the Winnipeg Goldeyes fell 13-8 to the Laredo Lemurs to close their first home series on Wednesday afternoon.

After a wild game that saw hits swatted from the plate and Goldeyes manager Rick Forney run through his entire bullpen, the Fish tied the game at eight with a timely eighth-inning home run from Fehlandt Lentini.

But after Allen Caldwell shut down the Lemurs at the top of the ninth, the home squad couldn’t capitalize on the chance to seal the game.

The 10th inning decided nothing, but the Lemurs offense caught its second wind in the 11th, burning Goldeyes relief pitcher Wes Alsup for two walks and three singles before center-fielder Sawyer Carroll drove in a three-run homer.

The Goldeyes wrapped up the series against Laredo 2-1, having clinched victories on Monday and Tuesday night.

The official attendance for the Wednesday morning game was set at 5,520 – a figure which set the Goldeyes past the 5-million attendance mark since their 1994 debut.
