Goldeyes defeat Grand Prairie Airhogs 5-2
The Goldeyes cruised to a 5-2 win over the Grand Prairie Airhogs for the series sweep this morning at Shaw Park.
The three-game sweep is the Goldeyes first at home this season.
The bottom half of the batting order for the Fish was outstanding all series-long.
It all started with sixth batter Donnie Webb in the second inning as he hit a blooper into right field. He would later steal second base and get brought home by Casey Haerther off a line-drive single. Haerther would score to make it 2-0 after two.
The two would team up again in the sixth. With Webb standing on second, Haerther slapped an RBI double and would later score to make it 4-0. Haerther went four for four, scoring three times.
The first baseman had an exceptional series, racking up 3 homeruns and nine RBI’s.
On the Mound
