RedHawks Sweep Doubleheader From Winnipeg


The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks swept a doubleheader from the Winnipeg Goldeyes by scores of 9-1 and 4-3 on Saturday night at Shaw Park in Winnipeg, MB.  The RedHawks improved to 7-9 on the season, while the first place Goldeyes fell to 10-5.

In the first game, Casey Haerther gave Winnipeg an early lead with a solo home run to the opposite field. However, a trio of two-out hits in the fifth would prove to be the difference for the RedHawks. Zach Penprase tied it with an RBI double off the left-centerfield wall then the next two batters each collected run-scoring hits to give Fargo-Moorhead the 3-1 lead.

Fargo-Moorhead added to the lead in the next inning. With two outs, Nate Samson made a costly error on a groundout that allowed the RedHawks to load the bases. Penprase followed that with a sharp two-run single into center, putting the Goldeyes in a four run hole with six outs left, a tally they could not overcome.

Taylor Stanton picked up the win for the RedHawks to move to 2-1. He threw a seven inning complete game, allowing only one run on four hits and striking out five.

Matt Rusch worked five innings but got tagged with his first loss of the season. He allowed three runs on six hits while striking out six. Haerther, responsible for Winnipeg’s lone run in the game, also pitched 1/3 of an inning for the Goldeyes and got the lone batter he faced to fly out.

Unlike the first game, the RedHawks got on the board first in the second contest. They grabbed a 3-0 lead in the second inning thanks in part to four straight hits through the right side of the infield. A leadoff home run by Ronnie Bourquin in the fourth made it 4-0.

The Goldeyes cut the lead in half in their turn in the fourth. Josh Mazzola hit a solo home run to dead center, his third of the season, to highlight the two-run inning. The home run extended Mazzola’s hitting streak to 10 games, the best by a Goldeyes player this season.

In the ninth, the Goldeyes put their first two men on base after back-to-back walks from Chase Johnson. Samson attempted to move the runners over 90 feet, but popped up the sacrifice attempt. The next batter, Fehlandt Lentini, hit what looked to be a potential double play ball, but the throw to first was off the mark. As a result, a run scored and Lentini stood at second ,but Nick Liles ended the threat and ballgame with a swinging strikeout.

Alex Capaul took the loss to fall to 1-2. Alex Caldera went five innings for his third win of the season while Johnson earned his third save.

Over the two games on Saturday, the Goldeyes were outhit by the RedHawks, 19-8.

The Goldeyes and RedHawks finish their three game series tomorrow afternoon at Shaw Park. First pitch is set for 1:30 p.m.  A pair of leftys will take the mound, as Ethan Opsahl of Fargo-Moorhead will face Mark Hardy of Winnipeg.
