Not that it’s a big deal or anything, but the Winnipeg Goldeyes came up a bit short on Tuesday night as they played their first pre-season game against the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks south of the border.
The RedHawks edged Winnipeg 4-3 in front of 1,615 fans at Newman Outdoor Field in Fargo.
Winnipeg DH Kevin West hit a two run home run to right center in the seventh inning. Between passed balls and wild pitches the RedHawks plated three of their four runs in the seventh.
The Goldeyes play 5 more pre-season games before kicking off the season for the first official game on the road May 15 against Kansas City. Winnipeg fans can see the guys in action beginning Friday, May 22 at Canwest Park for their first home game. Tickets are on sale now at the box office or online through Ticketmaster.
