In their final outing before hosting the American Association all-star game, the Winnipeg Goldeyes destroyed the Gary Southshore RailCats 12-0 on Sunday afternoon.
Fish starter Chris Salamida tossed a complete-game shutout at U.S. Steel Yard and got ample run support as his teammates combined for 16 hits in the game.
Salamida struck out seven batters while allowing just four hits and one base on balls.
The Goldeyes put up six runs in the sixth inning, three more in the seventh and two in the eighth.
Reggie Abercrombie paced the Fish by going 4-for-5 with four RBIs, while teammate Casey Haerther contributed a home run and three RBI's in a 3-for-5 performance at the plate.
The Goldeyes will now take a two-day break for the 2014 American Association All-Star Celebrations, which happen in downtown Winnipeg on Monday and Tuesday. The all-star fan fest and Recycle Everywhere Skills Competition is scheduled for Monday afternoon and evening, respectively, while the Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries All-Star Game goes Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Shaw Park.
