Goldeyes derail Gary, win 7-2

  • Print

A great start and a big inning were exactly what the Winnipeg Goldeyes needed to win their second straight game.

The Goldeyes scored five runs in the fourth inning in Gary, Ind., to beat the RailCats 7-2 on Wednesday night. Starter Chris Salamida allowed only one run on eight hits over seven complete innings.

With the win, the Goldeyes improve to 50-38 on the season and stay a game and a half ahead of St. Paul in the American Association wild-card race.

Winnipeg opened the scoring in the first inning as leadoff hitter Mike Coles singled, went to third on a single by Price Kendall and scored on a single by Yurendell de Caster.

In the fourth, the Goldeyes broke it open. Luis Alen led off with a home run.

Kyle Day and Amos Ramon both scored on walks, with Kendall singling home Day and de Caster singling home Ramon. An error by left-fielder Eric Suttle allowed Kendall to score and sent de Caster to third, then Barbaro Canizares singled home de Caster to give the Goldeyes a 6-0 lead.

Gary scored a run in the bottom of the fourth, but the Goldeyes got it back in the fifth after they loaded the bases with two walks and a single. With nobody out, Alen scored as Duran hit into a double-play.

Gary added a run off reliever Chris Allen in the eighth, but that’s all they could muster.

Kendall, de Caster, Canizares and Day each had two hits for the Goldeyes as Winnipeg pounded out 11 hits. De Caster drove in two runs and Alen scored two.

Salamida (5-6, 3.86 ERA) got the win, while Alberto Rolon (1-1, 10.60 ERA), who gave up seven runs on nine hits over five complete innings, suffered the loss.

The Goldeyes and the RailCats play the final game of their three-game series Thursday afternoon at 12:10 p.m. Matt Rusch (8-3, 2.65 ERA) will get the start for Winnipeg while Morgan Coombs (5-7, 5.16 ERA) will start for Gary.
