Goldeyes win another one on the road

  • Print

A three-run third inning was all the Winnipeg Goldeyes required to defeat the Sioux Falls Canaries in South Dakota on Monday night

Six strong innings from starting pitcher Matt Jackson didn't hurt the cause, as the Goldeyes (11-7) earned a 3-2 win over the Canaries (6-11) in front of 2,011 fans at Sioux Falls Stadium.

With the win, the Fish improved to 8-3 on the road. They won three of seven games during their first homestand last week.

Jackson got off to a shaky start as the Canaries loaded the bases before an out was recorded in the bottom of the first inning. However, he was able to limit the damage to a sacrifice fly.

In the top of the third inning, Ray Sadler singled in Ryan Pineda, Luis Alen doubled in Tyler Kuhn and Sadler scored on a sac fly from Donnie Webb to round out the Goldeyes scoring.

Gabe Aguilar was tagged for a run, as he gave up a solo home run to Sioux Falls’ Drew Muran in the bottom of the seventh.

Jackson picked up his third win of the season, while Chris Kissock earned his fifth save.

Alen, Sadler and Jake Blackwood each had two hits for the Goldeyes.

The teams meet again Tuesday night at Sioux Falls Stadium. Lefty Nick Hernandez (0-0, 7.90) gets the start for Winnipeg against Sioux Falls’ Kyle Vasquez (2-1, 3.17). Game time is 7 p.m.
