Goldeyes finish road trip with win against Aigles

  • Print

The Goldeyes wrapped up another successful road trip with a 6-1 win over the Trois-Rivieres Aigles in Quebec Thursday night.

The Fish finished 6-4 on this swing through Quebec and New Jersey and head home to start a series today against the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. 

The Goldeyes spread the offence around at Stade Fernand-Bedard Thursday, scoring in six innings. Brock Bond drove in Winnipeg's first two runs and finished 2-for-3 at the plate. Teammates Casey Haerther and Reggie Abercrombie also had two hits.

Ethan Hollingsworth pitched six scoreless innings to pick up the win, allowing just three hits. Taylor Sewitt, Taylor Bratton, Kyle Bellamy, Brendan Lafferty and Kaohi Downing all saw action out of the bullpen in the final three innings. Sewitt was tagged in the seventh inning for Trois-Rivieres’ lone run. 

Aigles starter Ryan Bollinger took the loss. 

The victory guarantees Winnipeg (24-14) will return home in first place in the American Association’s tight North Division. The Goldeyes have a one-and-a-half game lead on the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks, their opponents at Shaw Park Friday, and a two-and-a-half advantage over the St. Paul Saints, pending the outcome of the game between those two teams tonight.
