Cota Homers Twice But RedHawks Fall 9-6 To Winnipeg

08/25/2011 11:57 PM -
Despite a pair of home runs and five RBIs from Carlo Cota, the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks lost 9-6 to the Winnipeg Goldeyes on Thursday night at Newman Outdoor Field.
 
Moments after he and Wes Long were named co-winners of the team’s player of the year award, Winnipeg catcher Luis Alen went out and hit a two-run homer to lead the Goldeyes to their 57th win of the season in front of 6,176 spectators at Shaw Park
 
Meanwhile Price Kendall, Jon Weber and Brian Myrow each drove in a pair of runs as the Fish improved to 57-38 on the season and won their third straight game over Fargo. The Goldeyes can sweep the four-game series – the final home series of the regular season – on Friday night.
 
The Goldeyes still lead the St. Paul Saints by four games in the race for first in the American Association’s North Division with just five games to play. The final game in this four-game series goes Friday night at the downtown ballpark. It’s Fan Appreciation Night and while ticket sales are approaching 7,000, good seats are still available.
 
Winnipeg got things started by putting up a a five-spot in the second inning as Weber singled and then Alen hit his two-run bomb. Wes Long then walked, Fehlandt Lentini doubled, sending Long to third and then Justin Bass was walked intentionally to load the bases. Kendal drove in Long and Lentini with a single and then Myrow drove home Bass with another base hit.
 
The RedHawks scored four runs in the third to make it close for awhile, but the Goldeyes added three in the fourth as Kendall singled to lead off, then Kody Kaiser was safe on an error that allowed Kendall to reach third. Kendall scored on a passed ball as Kaiser advanced to third. Myrow walked and then Weber blasted a double that scored both Kaiser and Myrow.
 
The Goldeyes added a ninth run in the bottom of the eighth as Kendall was safe on a fielder’s choice and scored on a single by Myrow.
 
Carlo Cota was once again the hitting star for Fargo. The RedHawks second baseman had a pair of homers and five runs batted in.
 
Walker (10-4, 3.37) pitched 5.1 innings and allowed four runs on five hits to earn the victory. Fargo starter Dan Blewett (2-4, 8.19) suffered the loss. Jamie Vermilyea pitched the ninth and picked up his 16th save of the season.
