Fish reel in first no-hitter in Goldeyes history against Canaries

  • Print

Five pitchers combined for the first no-hitter in Winnipeg Goldeyes history as the Fish defeated the Sioux Falls Canaries 3-0 to sweep a double-header at Sioux Falls Stadium in South Dakota on Wednesday.

Pitching was key for the Goldeyes on the day. Chris Salamida allowed just one run and went the distance in the first seven-inning game, which the Fish won 7-1.

His effort allowed Winnipeg to unleash a fresh bullpen on the Canaries for the rematch. Gabe Aguilar got the start and pitched 2 1/3 innings, followed by Kaohi Downing, who managed 2 2/3 innings. Taylor Sewitt pitched a third of an inning, Brendan Lafferty got the last two outs of the sixth and first out of the seventh, and Kyle Bellamy recorded the final two outs.

Goldeyes catcher Luis Alen was behind the plate for the full 14 innings, and pounded a double in Game 2 that scored Tyler Kuhn. His single drove in two runs in Game 1 .

Donnie Webb led Winnipeg at the plate in Game 2 with two hits and two RBIs.

Southpaw Nick Hernandez gets the start Thursday as the Goldeyes (13-7) look to sweep the four-game series against the Canaries (6-13), who will have former Goldeye Ben Moore on the mound.
