Box Score

The Goldeyes served as the home team.

Trailing 2-1 in the bottom of the sixth, the Goldeyes sent 10 batters to the plate and rallied for six runs.  Kevin Lachance launched a double to left-centre leading off and scored on the next pitch when Darnell Sweeney pulled a double down the right field line.  After Eric Wood drew a four-pitch walk, Kyle Martin ripped a single to right that scored Sweeney with the lead run.  Martin has hit safely in a career-high 11 consecutive games.  Three batters later, Jordan George walked to load the bases with two outs.  Roy Morales then drew a four-pitch walk to force home Wood.  Wes Darvill capped the inning with a bases-clearing double into the right field corner.

John Gorman (1-1) pitched a scoreless top of the sixth inning to earn the win in relief.  Justin Kamplain, Kent Hasler, and Jose Jose each worked a scoreless frame to close out the game.

Fargo-Moorhead jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first.  Brennan Metzger singled to right leading off the game.  After Trey Hair flied out to left-centre, Correlle Prime and Drew Ward hit back-to-back singles to chase home Metzger.  Prime stole third base, and scored the RedHawks’ second run when Leobaldo Pina beat out a potential inning-ending double play groundball.

In the bottom of the first, Lachance drew a leadoff walk and advanced to second when Sweeney singled to right.  Wood lined a single to centre that brought home Lachance.
