The Winnipeg Goldeyes went 1-2 this past weekend in a series against divisional rivals, the St Paul Saints. The Saints took the series opener Friday 8-5, Winnipeg came back Saturday to win 3-2, and St Paul took the rubber match yesterday afternoon 7-6.

 

Kevin McGovern picked up his first loss of the season Friday evening, as he gave up four runs (three earned) on 11 hits through six innings. David Bergin drove in three runs, including a two-run homer, but it wasn’t enough as the Saints beat the Goldeyes 8-5. Right hander Dustin Crenshaw picked up the W for the Saints, going 5.2 innings while allowing three runs on four hits.

 

Saturday saw a close affair, with Winnipeg walking away with a 3-2 win in front of 6,415 fans at Shaw Park. The offence was once again led by David Bergin, who hit his second homerun of the series and drove in two runs. Bloomfield Hills, MI native Andrew Sohn also had a big evening, driving in one run while going two for four with a double and a homer. Zach Nuding picked up his second win of the season in the game, while Ryan Chaffee struck out one in his 1.1 innings to pick up his ninth save of the season.

 

Yesterday’s game was another one-run game, with the St Paul Saints walking away with a 7-6 win in the afternoon affair. Clayton, NC native Jason Creasy picked up the win for the Saints, despite allowing all six runs on six hits through five innings pitched. Reliever Seth Rosin came in in the ninth inning to pick up the save for St Paul. Mitchell Lambson came in in the sixth inning for the Goldeyes, and picked up the loss. David Bergin was again at the forefront of the Winnipeg offence, driving in two runs on a double. Bergin now has 22 RBI’s on the season.

 

The Goldeyes currently sit two games back of the Saints in the American Association North Division with a record of 17-12. Winnipeg sets out on a seven game road trip today, starting with a three game series with the Lincoln Saltdogs. Game one goes tonight at Haymarket Park in Lincoln, Nebraska with first pitch scheduled for 6:45.
