Caldera, RedHawks Shut Out Sioux Falls 4-0

Alex Caldera pitched seven solid innings to provide the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks plenty of breathing room in a 4-0 victory over the Sioux Falls Pheasants on Saturday, May 26 at Newman Outdoor Field.


The Pheasants would pressure Caldera early in the top of the first inning. Sioux Falls put runners on the corners after a single by Jonny Kaplan and an error that allowed Cesar Nicolas to reach first base with two outs. Alex Cardera would strike out the next hitter Cristian Guerrero to get out of the first inning unharmed.


The RedHawks took the lead early in the bottom of the first inning after an Enrique Cruz single line drive to centerfield scored Zach Penprase from second base after he had walked earlier in the inning.


After striking out RedHawks first baseman Jorge Delgado to start the third, Pheasants starter pitcher Matthew Somme walked the next three consecutive hitters to load the bases. Centerfielder Nic Jackson hit into a fielder’s choice to score Todd Jennings and give the RedHawks a 2-0 lead.


Fargo-Moorhead would stretch their lead to the final score in the fifth inning. The RedHawks began the inning with a leadoff single by Jennings and a Penprase walk. Jackson would follow Penprase by hitting a single to score Jennings from second and advance Penprase to third. Penprase would score on the following Cruz at-bat after a fielder’s choice that made the score 4-0.


Caldera threw 97 pitches, gave up four hits, three walks, and four strikeouts in seven innings of work. Three different relievers would come in for the RedHawks to finish the game. After Joe Harris gave up a walk to start the eighth inning, Kyle Dahman came in to finish the inning only allowing one hit and striking out one. Kevin Fuqua pitched the ninth inning and walked one and struck out one to finish the game.


Pheasants starting pitcher Matthew Sommo picked up his first loss of the season after throwing five innings and giving up four earned runs on four hits and five walks. Sioux Falls Reliever’s Thomas Heithoff, Jack Van Leur, and Dan Cooper pitched the next three innings to give up a combined two walks and one hit with four strikeouts.


Caldera picks up his second win of the season to improve his record to 2-0 on the year.  Cruz lead the RedHawks batting 2-for-4 with two RBIs. Penprase and Jennings both crossed the plate twice for the RedHawks’ two runs. Jackson, Jennings, and Jorge Delgado were the other Fargo-Moorhead players with hits.


Five different players got hits for the Sioux Falls Pheasants as they drop to 3-5 on the season. Fargo-Moorhead improves to 5-4 on the 2012 season with the second game win of the three-game series. The final game is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. at Newman Outdoor Field with Paul Burnside being the probable starter for Fargo-Moorhead and Mark Michael being the the probable starter for Sioux Falls.
