The win ended the Goldeyes’ four-game losing streak and maintained their 1 ½-game lead in the American Association’s wild-card race over the St. Paul Saints..

With the bases loaded in the top of the first inning, Canizares notched a single that scored Price Kendall and Michael Coles. Josh Mazzola then drove in Yurendell de Caster to give Winnipeg a 3-0 lead.

The Goldeyes increased their lead to 5-0 in the second inning compliments of a sacrifice fly from de Caster and RBI single from Canizares who added another RBI single in the fifth.

Canizares singled in de Caster in the top of the ninth for his fifth RBI of the game.

Canizares wasn’t the only big Fish Tuesday as de Caster was a perfect two-for-two with an RBI and three runs scored.
