THE Goldeyes started a four-game series on "Thirsty Thursday" at Lincoln's picturesque Haymarket Park, which meant that Busch beers could be had for a buck.

Apparently, the Fish have more champagne tastes. By which we mean the taste of winning, because despite a long overnight drive from Amarillo, Texas, the Fish were sharp enough to stretch their record-setting season start to seven wins.

True, it helped that the opposition struggled early to shut the door. The Goldeyes torched starter Nathan Moreau for eight hits and four runs in the game's first four innings.

GAMEBREAKER

-- Mark Hardy: the Canadian southpaw held firm against a Saltdogs offence that's known to be talented. In 6 1/3 innings, Hardy only gave up five hits, and struck out nine batters. He didn't walk a single one.

FISH WRAP

Maybe the Fish felt a little tired after a long overnight drive from Amarillo, Alen said, but "as soon as you hear 'play ball,' you just go and give 100 per cent out there." In this case, that meant keeping a big win streak alive, and Alen pointed at the boys on mound for the Fish's success.

"Our pitchers are doing a great job out there. They're making good pitches, and every time they do that, we're gonna get a good outcome every time."

-- Martin
