The Thompson Sports News


The 3,531 fans who were at Shaw Park last night were not disappointed. Even though the game only took two and a half hours to play, The Winnipeg Goldeyes bounced back from dropping their home opener to beat the Sioux Falls Canaries 8-4 in game two of their seven game home stand.

 

Southpaw Kevin McGovern got his third start of the year for the Goldeyes while picking up his second win. The Philadelphia, PA native pitched eight solid innings, striking out seven while allowing four earned runs on four hits. All four runs were scored in the ninth inning. McGovern has pitched in 17 of 18 innings in his last two starts and leads the American Association with 21.2 innings pitched.

 

Andrew Sohn lead the way for the Winnipeg offence, going three for four on the evening with a double and a home run for four RBI's. Josh Romanski, David Bergin, Mason Katz and Wes Darvill drove in the other four runs for the Goldeyes.

 

Both the Goldeyes and Canaries maintained their positions in the North Division of the American Association with the decision. Winnipeg sits in second in the North Division, and third overall in the American Association, with a record of 8-4. They're one game back of the league-leading Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks and Sioux City Explorers. Sioux Falls sits last in the North Division and second last in the American Association with a 4-7 record.

 

Game three of the four game series between the divisional rivals goes this morning at 11:00 at Shaw Park.
