The Winnipeg Goldeyes couldn't help but make for a nerve-wracking victory in front of 5,088 fans at Shaw Park. The Fish led by five at one point, but would walk away with a one point victory.

The Fish wasted no time getting runs on the board. After serving Trois-Rivières three up and down in the top of the first, the Goldeyes quickly threw four runs up on the board in the bottom of the frame. Casey Haerther hit a double into right field to bring in Amos Ramon and Ryan Scoma. On the next at bat, Josh Mazzola hit his ninth home run of the season to bring in Haerther and himself.

The Aigles put pressure on in the second inning, loading the bases up on Goldeyes pitcher Pete Gehle. However, the Aigles only came out of the inning with one run after shortstop David Cooper hit a single to bring in Cam Kneeland who walked onto the bases earlier. The Goldeyes matched the run in the bottom of the second and added another run in the third off a Kevin Moesquit single to take a 6-1 lead after three innings.

Trois-Rivières fought back into the game, scoring a run off a Cooper single in the fourth and two more runs in the fifth to climb within two points at 6-4. The Goldeyes tried couldn't get anything going in the fourth through seventh innings, going three and out in all of them.

The Aigles tightened the game up even further in the top of the ninth. With two runners on base and their backs against the wall, the Aigles produced a run off a Cam Kneeland single for a 6-5 score and put another run in scoring position at third base. With the full count, Chris Keating struck out Jeremy Nowak to end the game.

Gehle took the victory on the mound, pitching six innings, allowing four runs on eight hits, three walks and six strikeouts.

 

GAMEBREAKERS

Mazzola got the crowd excited in the first inning with a two-run home run to give his team a 4-0 lead after the first inning. Mazzola finished with one run, two hits and two RBIs in four at bats.

Aigles third baseman Cam Kneeland was a threat to the Goldeyes late in the game. He had one run, two hits and three RBI to give his team a chance at their comeback.

 

KEY PLAY

The Trois-Rivières Aigles were close to a comeback in the eighth inning, but the Goldeyes made a critical play to maintain their lead. Aigles catcher Emerson Frostad hit a ball deep right field for a sure double. However, Frostad ran for third and was tagged out by Ramon. The Aigles went scoreless in the eighth inning. Trois-Rivières scored one in the ninth, but it wasn't enough to come back.

 

FISH WRAP

"Pete came out and pitched real well. We gave him some run support early and he ended up holding the lead. Our bullpen came in and shut it down. We had some timely hitting with two outs in the first inning and we just came out to play today," said Goldeyes shortstop, Josh Mazzola.

 

ON THE HOOK

The Goldeyes will finish their 10 game homestand at Shaw Park with a four game series in three days against the Lincoln Saltdogs. Games one and two will start tonight in a doubleheader. The first pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
