WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Goldeyes are hoping to start another long winning streak after a 7-4 win over the Wichita Wingnuts, their second straight win.
The Fish had lost two straight following a ten-game win streak, but back-to-back wins at Shaw Park has them four games up in the wild card race.
The Goldeyes got an early 3-0 lead, and while Wichita would tie it, they would never take the lead. The Winnipeg bullpen shut down the Wingnuts bats to secure the win for starter Mikey O’Brien.
Interestingly, the Wingnuts’ designated hitter in the game was pitcher Garrett Gould, who was forced to play DH because the team had nobody else to do it thanks to a number of injuries.
The Goldeyes will try to take three of four from the Wingnuts when the teams meet this afternoon at 1:05 at Shaw Park.
