The Winnipeg Goldeyes finished their final road trip of the season with a stellar 6-1 record over the weekend.
The Fish completed a sweep of the Sioux Falls Canaries with an 8-5 victory on Sunday, making it the sixth straight win for Winnipeg in the last week.
With seven games left in the season — all of which will be played at home — the Goldeyes remain 1 ½ games back of the wild card leading Gary SouthShore RailCats.
“They played solid pretty much the whole road trip,” said Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea. “We won some big ballgames that we needed to win and we tried to put ourselves in good position for the last week.”
The Goldeyes begin their final week of play on Tuesday against the St. Paul Saints for a four-game set before welcoming the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Saturday, Sunday and Labour Day Monday. Tickets are available at the Shaw Park box office or through Ticketmaster.
