The Winnipeg Goldeyes ended their seven-game home-stand with a win, beating the Lincoln Saltdogs 5-2 to move into a tie for first placed in the American Association and the North Division.

 

The 3,612 in attendance at Shaw Park in the Manitoba capital yesterday afternoon were treated to a dazzling performance by Kevin McGovern, who pitched seven solid innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits while striking out eight.

 

Hazelton, PA native Victor Capellan came in in relief in the eighth inning, before righty Ryan Chaffee came in and picked up the save in the ninth. The save was Chaffee’s league-leading seventh on the young season.

 

Once again the Goldeyes offence was lead by Josh Romanski, who picked up his 19th RBI of the season. Romanski is currently tied with Matt Chavez of the Wichita Wingnuts and Frank Martinez of the Gary SouthShore RailCats for the league lead.

 

Bennett Parry got the start for Lincoln, his fourth of the season. Parry pitched five innings, giving up one run on two hits while walking four and striking out three. Zac Person picked up the loss for the Saltdogs, pitching only 0.2 innings. Person gave up four runs (two earned) on four hits while walking three. J.R. Bunda and Michael Wagner pitched the remaining 2.1 innings of the game.

 

The Goldeyes have today off, before starting a three game series with the Sioux City Explorers at Lewis & Clark Park in Sioux City, Iowa.
