Goldeyes shut down Saltdogs

  • Print

On a chilly night at Shaw Park, Goldeyes pitcher Fabian Williamson was on fire.

Williamson struck out 11 batters in 6.2 innings of work, a season-high for the club, as the Goldeyes (17-6) recorded a 4-0 win over the Lincoln Saltdogs. A crowd of 4,251 saw the Fish extend their winning streak to five games and their lead in first place in the American Association's North Division to five games.

Add one strikeout by reliever Craig James and the team's total of 12 is also a season high. It was Winnipeg's second shutout victory of the season.

The teams will meet again tonight at 7 p.m. when rookie Rich Hawkins (1-0, 6.75) will start for Winnipeg while Lincoln is expected to go with Jino Gonzalez (0-2, 7.43).

While Goldeyes' right-fielder Josh Mazzola had hit three home runs in the previous four games, it was left-fielder Jon Weber's night to go deep. Weber's three-run shot to right gave Winnipeg a 3-0 lead after the first inning.

Winnipeg's scoring concluded in the eighth when Lincoln reliever D.A. Graham walked in a run with the bases loaded.
