Goldeyes defeat AirHogs 5-2

  • Print

The Winnipeg Goldeyes cruised to a 5-2 win over the Grand Prairie AirHogs for the series sweep Thursday morning at Shaw Park.

The three-game sweep is the Goldeyes' first at home this season. The bottom half of the batting order for the Fish was outstanding all series long.

It all started with sixth batter Donnie Webb in the second inning as he hit a blooper into right field. He would later steal second base and get brought home by Casey Haerther off a line-drive single. Haerther would score to make it 2-0 after two.

The two would team up again in the sixth. With Webb standing on second, Haerther slapped an RBI double and would later score to make it 4-0. Haerther went 4-for-4, scoring three times.

The first baseman had an exceptional series, racking up three home runs and nine RBI.

 

ON THE MOUND

 

Matthew Jackson started things off for the Fish. Jackson tossed five shutout innings, giving up only two hits and struck out two. The AirHogs battled in the eighth and ninth, picking up two runs off relievers.

 

UP NEXT

 

Now sitting on top of the North Division, the Fish will host the former leaders the St. Paul Saints tonight at 7 p.m. to begin another three-game series.
