Goldeyes' bats go cold in loss to Lemurs
The hottest-hitting team in the American Association flamed out in Texas Monday night and the result was a 7-3 win for the Laredo Lemurs over the Winnipeg Goldeyes.
The Fish (3-2) came into the game sporting a league-leading .323 batting average, but could only manage five hits on the night.
The Lemurs were up 4-0 when the Goldeyes finally responded in the seventh, with right-fielder Josh Mazzola scoring on third baseman Ryan Pineda's sacrifice fly. The Goldeyes scored two more runs in the ninth via a double from left-fielder Donnie Webb and another sac fly from Pineda.
Mazzola and first baseman Casey Haerther each had two hits while Webb was the only other Goldeye to register a hit in the game.
Goldeyes starting pitcher Chris Salmida (0-2) took the loss.
The two teams meet again Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Laredo in the second game of a three-game series.
