RedHawks rebound to drop Goldeyes

  • Print

The Winnipeg Goldeyes took an early 3-0 lead against the North Division-leading Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks Monday night, but lost the game 5-3 before 3,448 fans at Newman Outdoor Field in Fargo.

Winnipeg’s lead in the wild-card race is down to four games after the St. Paul Saints beat the Gary SouthShore RailCats 5-1. The Goldeyes now trail Fargo by five and a half games for first place in the division.

Winnipeg opened a two-run lead in the second inning when Yurendell de Caster singled in Amos Ramon and then scored a batter later on a Josh Mazzola double. Mike Coles doubled and then scored on a Kyle Day double as the Goldeyes extended the lead to 3-0 in the fourth.

The RedHawks cut into Winnipeg’s lead in the bottom of the fourth with a pair of runs thanks to two RBI singles.

Nic Jackson hit a solo home run for Fargo in the sixth inning to tie the game 3-3.

A Price Kendall error in the eighth inning led to Fargo taking the lead. Kendall failed to pick up a ground ball at short, which allowed Jackson to reach base. Jackson came around to score on a Jon Gaston single and, with two outs, Ryan Delgado’s sac fly to score Eric Campbell gave the RedHawks a 5-3 lead.

Coles, Josh Mazzola and Amos Ramon each had two hits for the Goldeyes, who grounded three double-plays in the game.

Goldeyes starter Matt Rusch went six and a third innings, allowing three runs and striking out three. He takes the no-decision. Brian Beuning was tagged with the loss after giving up two unearned runs in the eighth inning.

The Goldeyes and RedHawks meet against Tuesday night at Newman Outdoor Field at 7 p.m. Lefty Todd Privett (5-4, 3.25) gets the start for Winnipeg, while Fargo will counter with Tyler Herron (8-3, 4.02).

The pre-game show on TSN 1290 with Paul Edmonds begins at 6:30 p.m.
