The Winnipeg Goldeyes continued their climb up the American Association North Division standings with a 5-4 win over Texas.

 

The AirHogs, who came into the game with a record of 17-45, put two runs past Goldeyes starter Kevin McGovern in both the third and fifth innings to build a 4-0 lead.

 

The Winnipeg comeback started in the bottom of the seventh inning with a double from Jordan Ebert who made his way to third following a pair of walks before shortstop Matt McCann reached base on a fielder’s choice, which brought him home.

 

The real magic happened in the bottom of the ninth after Ebert, McCann and Josh McAdams all drove in runs to tie the game at four. With one out and runners on second and third, veteran slugger Reggie Abercrombie scored his 46th RBI of the season driving home McAdams on a sacrifice fly to end the game.

 

Despite giving up four earned runs, McGovern had a solid start for the Goldeyes, striking out nine over 6.2 innings in his 14th start of the season. He currently holds a record of 3-7, and seems to have taken a big step back from last year, where he finished the season 13-3 with an ERA of 2.55.

 

The Winnipeg bullpen managed to hold off the Texas bats during the last two innings of the game, with Farmington, New Mexico native Edwin Carl only allowing one hit in the eighth, before Victor Capellan picked up his third win of the season in the ninth.

 

The Goldeyes are back in action again tonight as they open a three-game set at Shaw Park against the visiting Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks.

 

Winnipeg currently sits seven games back of the division lead, which is currently shared by the Gary SouthShore RailCats and the St. Paul Saints.
