Fish chalk up another comeback victory

  • Print

11The slugger from the 2012 Goldeyes roster arrived in the fourth inning of the game and watched the electricity spark in the come-from-behind to win. de Caster will join the Goldeyes lineup in tonight's game.

The Goldeyes opened the scoring with two runs in the bottom of the third inning, but the Canaries replied with three runs of their own in the top of the fourth, including a two-run home run by designated hitter Tim Pahuta.

The Canaries added another run in the top of the sixth on a Kevin Dultz single to left field, but Ryan Scoma added a run of his own in the bottom of the inning, hitting a solo home run to put the Fish behind 4-3.

The Goldeyes struggled to get anything going at the plate thanks to eight solid innings from Canaries pitcher Ben Moore. The Goldeyes went three and out in the fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth innings. Alan DeRatt took the mound for Sioux Falls in the ninth and gave up three runs on three hits to allow the Goldeyes their third come- from-behind win in four games.

óó GAMEBREAKERS

 

Scoma once again proved why he's near the top of the American Association in batting average. The lefty went two for three at the plate, bringing in two runs and scoring two himself.

If Canaries pitcher Moore had played all nine innings the Goldeyes might not have been victorious. Moore completed eight innings allowing three runs on five hits and struck out six. Moore was a major reason why the Goldeyes weren't able to bring runs in throughout most of the game.

 

óó KEY PLAY

 

Kevin Moesquit hadn't connected on a hit all game going into the bottom of the ninth, but became Friday night's hero.

With two out he had Mazzola on third and pinch runner Chris Salamida on second and the Goldeyes were relying on him to bring in at least the tying run. Moesquit blooped the ball just into the outfield and it fell between the Canaries left and centre fielders. The ball dropped, two runs came in and the Goldeyes roster surrounded Moesquit at second base in celebration.

 

óó FISH WRAP

Moesquit, a 22-year-old, has learned a lot in his time with the Goldeyes and credits that to securing the victory.

"They're a little bit older than me, but I get feedback from them when I'm struggling and stuff, but this was a team win and these guys are just great. They're a great group of guys."

 

óó ON THE HOOK

The Winnipeg Goldeyes will play game two of the three-game series against the Canaries tonight at 6 p.m.
