Birds Drop 5th Straight on Road



Bookmark and Share

WINNIPEG, Manitoba. – The Sioux Falls Pheasants’ offensive struggles continued in a 6-1 loss to the Winnipeg Goldeyes on Monday night, and the Birds season-high losing streak stretched to five games.

For the third straight game, the Pheasants (25-24) mustered only one run with just nine position players available due to injuries.

Kyle Day’s RBI double gave the Goldeyes a 1-0 advantage in the second inning, but Jake Taylor hit a two-out, run-scoring single to tie the game in the fourth inning.

Winnipeg (29-20) took the lead for good with Josh Mazzola’s two-run home run in the fourth inning off Pheasants starter Pete Gehle (4-4). Yurendell de Caster did the same in the fifth inning. David Narodowski singled in Winnipeg’s final tally in the eighth.

Mazzola was 3-for-4 with two RBI and has gone 13-for-24 (.542) against Pheasants pitching in six games.

Winnipeg starter Ace Walker (5-2) showed why he is one of the top pitchers in the league. For the fourth consecutive outing, he allowed just one run while going at least seven innings. Walker struck out seven Pheasants and walked none. Despite allowing five leadoff hitters aboard, none came home to score. Only once could the Pheasants send more than four hitters to the plate in an inning.

Gehle suffered the loss, giving up five runs in six innings on six hits. He walked two and struck out two.

Kyle Mertins tossed a scoreless seventh inning in relief, and Cody Evans allowed a run in the ninth.

The finale of the four-game series is at 7p.m. on Tuesday, July 10, in Winnipeg.
