Wes Long takes it in after a 3 run shot in the 2nd inning, 400' to
deep center field, proves to be the game winning hit.


After a disappointing start to the afternoon, the Winnipeg Goldeyes (10-7) rebounded to edge the Schaumburg Flyers (5-11) 5-4 before 5,911 fans at Canwest Park.


Before Sunday’s regularly scheduled game, the Flyers beat the Goldeyes 7-5 in 10 innings to complete last night’s game, which was suspended due to rain in the seventh inning.


In the win, the Goldeyes struck for all five runs in the first two innings.

Goldeyes shortstop Wes Long walked to start the bottom of the first inning. He then stole second base and scored on an Aharon Eggleston single. Eggleston scored a couple batters later on a fielders choice.


Long added to the great start by walloping a three-run homer over the centre field fence in the bottom of the second inning to make it 5-0. It was Long’s second home run of the season.


Schaumburg chipped away at the lead with a run in the third inning and three runs in the eighth inning.


Bobby Korecky made his first appearance at home for the Goldeyes and got Andre Marshall to strikeout to end the game. It’s Korecky’s first save for Winnipeg.



Juan Diaz takes a full cut, failing to connect here in hopes of
extending the lead with a swing of the bat.  Diaz does take base by
drawing a walk.


Chris Salamida got the win after pitching seven solid innings. The lefty only allowed a run, while fanning seven Flyers. He improves to 2-1.

Todd Moser take the loss for Schaumburg.


With the win, the Goldeyes have won three of five series this season.


Winnipeg welcomes the Kansas City T-Bones for four games, beginning Monday at 7 p.m. You can catch all the action of 1570 CKMW with Paul Edmonds beginning at 7 p.m.
