It was a little more dramatic that it should have been, but the Winnipeg Goldeyes are back in the win column.

Having lost the first two games of this four game series, the Goldeyes (11-9) used five runs in the first two innings and a dramatic winning run in the sixth to beat the Kansas City T-Bones (13-6) 7-6 in a seven inning game Wednesday night at Canwest Park.


Kansas City scored the game’s first in the top of the opening inning, but the Goldeyes answered with five-straight of its own.


Goldeyes shortstop Wes Long reached on a single and centre fielder Aharon Eggleston doubled to open Winnipeg’s half of the first. Long scored on a Juan Diaz ground ball to tie the game. Eggleston and Kevin West, who got to first on a walk, put Winnipeg up 3-1 when they both scored on an error by Kansas City first baseman Ryan Fox.


In the second, the Goldeyes pushed the lead to 5-1. First baseman Jeremy Hamilton and second baseman Josh Asanovich singled to start things off. After a sac bunt by catcher Brent Wallace moved them over to second and third, Eggleston singled to drive in both runs.

With Kansas City trailing 6-2, the T-Bones put up four runs in the top of the sixth inning to tie the game.


Winnipeg replied in the bottom of the inning. Vince Harrison reached first when he was hit by a pitch. An error by T-Bones pitcher Kyle Dahman on a pick off attempt moved Harrison to second base. A sac bunt by Hamilton moved Harrison to third and then a wild pitch by Dahman allowed Harrison to score the game-winning run.


Ian Thomas came into the game in the sixth inning and gets the win. His record improved to 3-0.

Bobby Korecky finished in the game off in the seventh inning for his second save of the season.


The win snaps a mini two-game losing streak for Winnipeg.

The final game of this four-game set goes Thursday morning at 11 a.m.
