Over 4,000 people showed up to Shaw Park yesterday morning to watch the Winnipeg Goldeyes play the Sioux Falls Canaries.
Winnipeg outlasted a comeback from Sioux Falls to take the third installment of their four game series 5-4. They now sit only one game back of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks for the lead in the North Division.
Josh Romanski had two RBI's for the Goldeyes in the afternoon affair while going two for four with a double. Romanski's two RBI's keep him atop of the American Association leader board with 18 on the season. Bergin, Abercrombie and Katz each had one RBI in the game.
LA Dodgers 2007 draft pick Ty Morrison hit a two run homer for the Canaries, while B.J. Guinn Jr. and Dan Motl knocked in the other runs for Sioux Falls.
Fort Worth's Zach Nuding pitched six strong innings for Winnipeg while picking up his first win of the season. Nuding allowed three of the four runs, all earned, while striking out four and walking two. Nuding's last start came on May 25, a 19-4 loss to the Wichita Wingnuts.
Goldeyes closer Ryan Chafee picked up his league-leading fifth save of the year, striking out one while walking one in the ninth inning.
Grand Rapids, MI native Bryce Morrow got the start for the Canaries, his third of the year. Morrow lasted four innings Wednesday morning, giving up five earned runs on nine hits.
The four game series with Sioux Falls will conclude this evening at Shaw Park. First pitch is scheduled for just after 7:00pm.
The Goldeyes home-stand continues for three games after tonight, with the Lincoln Saltdogs in town for a three game weekend series.
