Goldeyes Sweep RedHawks

09/07/2012 10:31 PM -

Like they have all series, Winnipeg received some timely hitting and great pitching to beat the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks 4-1 Friday before 5,025 celebrating fans at Shaw Park.

The victory gives the Goldeyes a 3-0 series win over the RedHawks in their best-of-five American Association Divisional Series.

Winnipeg will now move on to play the Central Division Champion Wichita Wingnuts in the American Association Championship Series. Wichita beat the South Division Champion Laredo Lemurs in three straight games as well.

In Game 3, Fargo took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning when, with two outs, Nic Jackson doubled and then scored on a single from Ryan Delgado. But, that was it for the RedHawks, who scored just six runs in the series.

Winnipeg used some timely hitting in the bottom of the fourth inning to erase the one-run deficit and take a 4-1 lead. Barbaro Canizares and Josh Mazzola singled to begin the inning and were pushed along the base paths by a bunt from Luis Alen. After the RedHawks intentionally walked Mike Coles, Kyle Day drilled a ball down the first base line and it found its way through the legs of Fargo’s Marcos Rodriguez. The error by Fargo’s first baseman allowed Canizares and Mazzola to score. Amos Ramon then sent a single to right field that brought in Coles and Day to put Winnipeg up 4-1.

Ramon led Winnipeg with two RBI and no Goldeyes player had more than one hit.

Goldeyes starter Matthew Rusch was brilliant for seven innings. He allowed just the run in the first inning, struck out five and walked one for the win. Jack Van Leur, Chris Allen, Zach Baldwin and Brian Beuning combined for two shutout innings of relief. Beuning pitched the ninth for his third straight save of the series.

Paul Burnside went six innings in a losing cause for Fargo.

The Goldeyes and Wingnuts will begin their American Association Championship Series Tuesday night at Shaw Park at 7:00 p.m. Game 2 will be played in Winnipeg at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
