Fish win fifth straight 11-3

  • Print

If the Winnipeg Goldeyes don't clinch the American Association wild card spot, it's not for lack of trying, and at the right time.

The Fish won their fifth straight game on the road Saturday night, beating the Sioux Falls Canaries 11-3 in Sioux Falls, S.D.

Southpaw Chris Salamida pitched five innings, allowing just one run in that span. He's now 6-0 with an ERA of 1.93. And while the Canaries' bats opened quietly, the Goldeyes jumped right in, building a two-run lead by the end of two innings and 5-0 lead by the end of four.

The fifth inning closed with the Goldeyes up 9-0 thanks to a solo home run by Yurendell de Caster and hits by Casey Haerther and Luis Alen. By the time Sioux Falls could muster up any sort of offence, managing one run in each of the eighth and ninth innings, the game was far out of reach.

What remains just beyond the grasp of the Goldeyes is the American Association wild card spot. With a 6-0 win over the St. Paul Saints Saturday night, the Gary SouthShore Railcats retain a 1½-game lead over the Fish for the spot.

Sunday afternoon marks the last road game for the Goldeyes before returning home for their final seven games. Sioux Falls gets one more crack at the Fish tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m.; the Goldeyes face the St. Paul Saints at Shaw Park Tuesday night.
