Early lead helps Goldeyes cement win against Jackals

  • Print

Grabbing an early lead helped the Winnipeg Goldeyes avoid being swept in their three-game interleague series against the New Jersey Jackals of the Can-Am League. 

The Fish recorded a 2-1 win at Yogi Berra Stadium in Little Falls, N.J., on Thursday to improve to 19-12 on the season and snap a three-game losing streak.

Ray Sadler's two-run first-inning home run was all the offence the Goldeyes required, as pitcher Matt Jackson got the win by striking out five Jackals, walking two and allowing just one run and four hits in 6 2/3 innings of work. Brendan Lafferty, Chris Kissock and Kyle Bellamy, who earned the save, also took the mound for the Fish.

Jackals pitcher Isaac Pavlik also had a solid outing, throwing six strikeouts in the same amount of innings as Jackson.

The Goldeyes continue this 10-game Can-Am road trip with games Friday to Sunday against the Quebec Capitales, followed by a four-game set against the Trois-Rivieres Aigles.
