The Winnipeg Goldeyes may have lost Sunday’s game 4-2 to the visit Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks, but there was still a reason to celebrate.

Outfielder Reggie Abercrombie struck his 802nd base hit, breaking the American Association’s all-time hits record previously held by David Espinoza. Abercrombie tied Espinoza’s record of 801 in the bottom of the first, hammering a two-run homer over the left-field fence.

The home run gave the Fish a 2-1 lead heading into the second. RedHawks outfielder Devan Ahart opened scoring early, hitting a solo homer over the right-field fence in the top of the first.

The Fish closed out a three-game series against the RedHawks over the weekend and now travel to Lincoln to play a three-game series against the Saltdogs, beginning Tuesday at 6:45 p.m.

Winnipeg returns home Friday, August 3 for a three-game series against the Chicago Dogs.
