Goldeyes fall to Fargo again
The Winnipeg Goldeyes (26-19) lost their fourth straight game Thursday night, dropping a 6-3 decision to the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (24-21) at Shaw Park before a crowd of 5,289.
The Goldeyes, clinging to a one-game lead atop the North division, have lost their last six games against Fargo, all at home. Fargo holds a 6-4 edge in the season series so far between the two teams.
Winnipeg’s starting pitcher Tony Butler took the loss, allowing six runs on seven hits with seven walks and one strikeout in five innings.
The two teams will close out their four-game set Friday at 7 p.m. with Matt Rusch (5-1, 2.29 ERA) starting for the Goldeyes and Fargo starting Aaron Schafer (3-4, 5.88).
On Thursday, Fargo scored a pair of third-inning runs followed by four runs in the top of the fifth. A two-run home run by right-fielder Sergio Pedroza and a two-run single by first baseman Marco Rodriguez gave the RedHawks a 6-0 lead.
The Goldeyes replied with singles in each of the bottom of the fifth, seventh and ninth with centre-fielder Chris Roberson driving in all three runs.
