The Thompson Sports News


The Winnipeg Goldeyes have slipped to 1.5 games back of the St Paul Saints in the American Association’s North Division after being edged by the Texas AirHogs 4-2. The game was tied heading into the eighth inning when Texas pulled ahead for the win.

 

Wes Darvill reached on a fielder’s choice in the second inning, allowing Shawn Pleffner to cross the plate to open the scoring. Alixon Suarez singled as the next batter to score Mason Katz and increase the Goldeye’s lead to two.

 

The AirHogs scored two runs in the fourth inning thanks to a wild pitch and a single from Beamer Weems. Jake Taylor singled in the eighth and Levi Scott did the same in the ninth to push Texas ahead.

 

Zack Dodson got the start for Winnipeg while Michael Freeman got the start for Texas, and both came away with a no decision. Dodson went seven innings, allowing two earned runs on eight hits. Freeman went six, allowing both runs on seven hits while fanning six.

 

Groesbeck, TX native T.J. Bozeman came in in relief for the AirHogs in the seventh inning, and picked up the win for his two solid innings where he struck out two while only allowing one hit. Southpaw Josh Blanco pitched the ninth inning for Texas and picked up his second save of the season.

 

Victor Capellan and Josh Laxer split the work for the Goldeyes in the eighth and ninth innings, each giving up a run in their respective innings. Capellan walked away with the loss.

 

Winnipeg and Texas will meet tonight for the series finale in Winnipeg at Shaw Park, with first pitch scheduled for just after 7:00pm. After tonight, the Goldeyes will host the North Division leading St Paul Saints for an important three game weekend series. This will be the first time the divisional rivals will meet this season.
