Goldeyes grill T-Bones 18-10

  • Print

Winnipeg's bats were red hot as the Goldetes cruised to an 18-10 win over the Kansas City T-Bones on Thursday at Shaw Park.

The Fish extended their win streak to eight games with back-to-back series sweeps at home. The Fish racked up 25 hits in the game. Only infielder Josh Mazzola was unable to pick up a hit.

The onslaught began in the bottom of the second after Ray Sadler launched a solo home run over the left-field wall to put the Fish up 1-0. After that the Fish, started to pick apart T-Bones starter Kyle DeVore with five straight singles, including Ryan Pineda, who went 2-for-3 with three RBIs and two walks.

Goldeyes player of the month in June, Casey Haerther, topped off the inning by driving Luis Alen home to give the Fish a 5-0 lead, but then a wild pitch that got passed the T-Bones catcher allowed Tyler Kuhn to score from third base. Haerther went 2-for-3 with one RBI.

Winnipeg continued the assault, pushing the lead to 12-0 after the fifth inning before Goldeyes pitcher Nick Hernandez starting getting into trouble in the sixth.

Hernandez (5-0, 3.56) allowed one run before another T-Bones' run scored because outfielder Reggie Abercrombie failed to track a pop-up in the sun. The frustration built up on the next pitch when an easy come-backer to Hernandez looked like a double-play opportunity, but he misfired on the throw to second. Manager Rick Forney had seen enough after the T-Bones closed to within seven at 12-5 and Hernandez's night was over.

Whatever momentum the T-Bones thought they had was swept away in the eighth as the Goldeyes found their groove again.

The Fish scored six more runs and increased the lead to 18-5 before a ninth-inning rally by Kansas City fell short.

 

ON THE MOUND

On Wednesday, starter Hernandez said all he wanted to do was put up zeros when on the mound. Well, he accomplished that for the most part Thursday. The lefty went 5 1/3 innings, allowing eight hits and five runs while striking out seven. He improved to 5-0 on the season. Side-armed reliever Taylor Sewitt was exceptional throughout 2 2/3 innings, stopping the bleeding and giving the momentum back to the Fish.

 

UP NEXT

The Goldeyes head to Fargo tonight to take on the arch-rival RedHawks in a three-game series before returning home Tuesday.
