The Thompson Sports News


The Goldeyes lost their home opener last night as the Sioux Falls Canaries doubled up on Winnipeg 10-5. The night got underway before first pitch with a ceremony honouring last seasons’ American Association Championship in front of a crowd of 6,357 people.

 

 The Canaries got the ball rolling in the second inning, when catcher Cody Coffman singled to centre to score Patrick Fiala. Scoring was a team effort by Sioux Falls in the game, with six different players driving in runs.

 

Right hander Mikey O’Brien got the start for Winnipeg, going three and a third innings in a start he’d like to soon forget. He gave up seven runs on 12 hits while walking two and striking out only one. The loss was O’Brien’s first of the season with a record of two and one. His ERA shot up to 5.87.

 

Tampa, FL native David Bergin was the lone bright spot for the Goldeyes in the game, going two for five with a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth.

 

Winnipeg sits at seven and four after the loss and sit second in the American Association North Division, two games back of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. Sioux Falls improved to four and six on the year with the win, four and a half games back of the RedHawks.

 

Winnipeg and Sioux Falls will play this evening at Shaw Park for game two of their four game set. First pitch is scheduled for just after seven.
