Goldeyes shut down the Aigles

  • Print

Starting pitcher Nick Hernandez paved the way for the Winnipeg Goldeyes as they topped the Trois-Rivieres Aigles 4-0 in an interleague affair in Quebec Monday night.

Hernandez earned the win as he tossed seven innings and held the Aigles scoreless while allowing just four hits and striking out eight batters.

 Hernandez’ teammates provided him with the lead in the first inning and he took care of the rest on the way to his first win of the season. Winnipeg scored a run in first and second innings and then added another pair in the top of the ninth to help salt the game away.

Both first baseman Casey Haerther and centre-fielder Reggie Abercrombie had two hits and an RBI for the Goldeyes.

For the Aigles, second baseman Jose Cuevas and shortstop Travis Weaver each had two hits while third baseman Eric Grabe added a double and a base on balls.

The win improved the Goldeyes' record to 22-13, good for first place in the American Association's North division.

The Goldeyes and Aigles meet again Tuesday at 11 a.m. for the second game of a four-game series.
