The Goldeyes fell 4-1 to the visiting Lincoln Saltdogs Sunday, closing out the four-game series with a split.
In a familiar refrain, the Fish struggled to find timely hits against Lincoln starter Marquis Fleming, who gave up five hits and one run in seven innings worth of work, while striking out seven batters along the way.
The Goldeyes’ only score came in the fifth, when third baseman Ryan Pineda singled to get on base and second baseman Jake Blackwood’s single drove him home.
The sluggish offensive performance was a shame, because Goldeyes starter Kyle Anderson hurled another solid game, finishing with two hits, two runs, four strikes and three walks in 6.2 innings on the mound.
The Fish hit the road for a seven-game swing, which kicks off Monday night against the Sioux Falls Canaries.
