And just like that, the Winnipeg Goldeyes are sitting pretty in the playoff picture.

With 32 games left in the regular season and the post-season race heating up, the Fish have turned up the temperature themselves, setting fire to the East Division Chicago Dogs and Lake Country DockHounds this weekend at Shaw Park, in what was a near-perfect homestand.

The white-hot club swept the DockHounds on Sunday afternoon, winning 10-3, after grabbing two of three against the Dogs, stretching their win streak to five-straigh, with nine wins in their last 10 games. Since the all-star break, they are 12-4 and have yet to drop a series.

The Fish now have a comfortable hold on the second wild card spot in the American Association playoff chase, with a four-game lead over the Milwaukee Milkmen, who the club will face six-straight times, in what is a home-and-home, starting later this week.

Pitching and stellar defence have stymied opponents during the club’s run, as the Fish have held its opposition to three runs or less in seven of its last 10 games.

The Fish (40-28) will look to keep it rolling on the road this week, starting tonight with the opener of a three-game series in Sioux Falls against the bottom-feeding Canaries (25-41).
