The Goldeyes scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh and held off the T-Bones for the final six outs in a 7-5 win over Kansas City at Shaw Park in Winnipeg, Canada, on Wednesday night.

Winnipeg took an early 1-0 lead in the second inning when Luis Allen came in to score on a two-out fielding error by shortstop Darrell Hudson.

The T-Bones responded, however, with a four-run third inning, taking a 4-1 lead. Kansas City got back-to-back singles from Brian Erie and Hudson followed by a walk to T.J. Mittelstaedt that loaded the bases. The T-Bones then got RBI hits from Bryan Sabatella (2) and David Espinosa. The T-Bones had another bases loaded opportunity in the third when Jonny Kaplan was intentionally walked to bring Nick Schawaner to the plate. Schwaner grounded into a double play that ended the threat.

Holding onto a 4-3 lead, starter Rick Zagone turned the ball over to the bullpen, but Jared Messer (1-1) gave up four runs in 1 2/3 innings pitched, including three in the bottom of the seventh.

The T-Bones got the leadoff man aboard in the eighth and ninth innings, but were unable to solve the Goldeyes bullpen for the second consecutive game.

The win gave Winnipeg (30-14) its seventh win in a row, and Kansas City (22-23) dropped its second in a row, and fell back below .500.

The two teams conclude their three-game series Thursday night at 6 in Winnipeg. All of the action can be heard on 1660-AM or online at
