The Winnipeg Goldeyes are starting their 2017 campaign with a 10-game road trip, and after five games sit third in the American Association North Division with a record of 3-2.

 

The Goldeyes opened up the season Thursday by winning 5-3 decision over the Cleburne Railroaders. Mikey O'Brien got the win for Winnipeg, striking out four over six solid innings while giving up two runs. Jupiter, Florida native Ryan Chaffee struck out one in the ninth to pick up the save. Josh Romanski lead the way up front for the Goldeyes, going two for five with a double and a home run, picking up three RBI's.  

 

Friday saw another Winnipeg win over Cleburne, this time 6-4. Southpaw Kenny Matthews picked up the win after coming in in relief in the fifth inning for starter Kevin McGovern. Chaffee picked up the save. Reggie Abercrombie picked up four RBI's in the game, going two for four at the plate with a home run.

 

Games three and four of the season-opening series didn't go as well for the Goldeyes, who dropped both games 4-3. Kenny Matthews picked up the loss on Saturday while Victor Capellan picked up the L on Sunday in a game that went 10 innings. Shawn Pleffner, the American Association batter of the week, went four for seven in the pair of losses.

 

Monday saw the Winnipeg pick up their third win of the season to bring their early season record to above .500 with a 12-10 win over the Salina Stockade. Joeanthony Rivera picked up the win after coming in in relief in the seventh inning, while Ryan Chaffee picked up his third save of the young season. Wes Darvill lead the offence for the Goldeyes in this one, going three for five while picking up four RBI's. Alixon Suarez and David Rohm picked up two RBI's apiece.

 

The Winnipeg Goldeyes play the Stockade again today, then wrap up the three game set tomorrow. The Goldeyes will play their first game at Shaw Park next Monday against the Sioux Falls Canaries.
