Goldeyes fall 6-1 to Sioux City Explorers

  • Print

With a chance to claim their first home series of the season, the Winnipeg Goldeyes let it slip away in today’s matinee.

The Fish fell 6-1 to the visiting Sioux City Explorers in the third and final game of the series, as their bats swung helpless against the Explorers’ starter Kohei Tsukada, a Japanese pitcher in his first pro season on this side of the Pacific. The Goldeyes mustered just four hits and one run against Tsukada, who struck out five Fish en route to being credited with the win.

The Fish, meanwhile, couldn’t muster much in return. Their only run came off the bat of back-up catcher Jordan Guida, who played right field in today’s game to fill in for injured Donnie Webb. In his very first swing in the bottom of the fifth, Guida banged out a lead-off home run.

Goldeyes starter Matt Jackson took the loss, after giving up nine hits and five runs in five innings of work.

The loss followed Tuesday’s tight 2-1 win over the Explorers, and Monday’s 6-5 loss in the Goldeyes home opener. That leaves the Fish with an 8-5 record on the season. Now, they’ll get ready to host the Lincoln Saltdogs on Thursday night at 7 p.m., the first of four games between the two teams.
