RedHawks Sweep Goldeyes

08/26/2010 10:04 PM -  

It just gets worse for the slumping Winnipeg Goldeyes.

The Goldeyes blew an 8-2 lead after three innings and fell 14-9 in nine innings to the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in front of 7,148 spectators in the first game of a doubleheader at Canwest Park Thursday night.

Fargo opened the scoring in the first as leadoff man Mike Coles hit a solo homer to left off Goldeyes starter Jason Mackintosh. But the Goldeyes answered with a run of their own as Juan Diaz hit a sacrifice fly to score Donzell McDonald from third.

The Goldeyes made it 4-1 in the second as Vince Harrison singled, stole second and scored on a double by Dee Brown. Brown scored on a double by Price Kendall and Kendall scored on a single by McDonald.

Fargo scored a run in the third, but the Goldeyes scored four times in the bottom of three as Diaz doubled, Justin Justice singled him home,

Alen walked and Vince Harrison hit a three-run homer.

But the RedHawks started to pick away at the lead. Carlo Cota hit a two-run homer in the fourth to make it 8-4. After the Goldeyes scratched home a run in the fifth, Fargo scored three in the sixth to make it 9-7.

In the seventh, with the Goldeyes only three outs away from a Game 1 victory, closer Bobby Korecky gave up a two-run homer to Jeremiah Piepkorn to tie the game and send it into extra innings.

With the Goldeyes bullpen spent in the ninth, Fargo scored five runs to put an exclamation point on a come-from-behind victory.

Casey Hoorelbeke (10-5, 1.46 ERA) was the winning pitcher while Chad Benefield (0-3, 3.23) suffered the loss. Both teams finished with 12
