RedHawks' Rundown: Goldeyes secure 2-1 series lead

Friday

Game 3 (Best-of-5)

Winnipeg 5, RedHawks 0

The Goldeyes started the game with four consecutive hits off RedHawks starter Billy Weitzman. Josh Asanovich and Vince Harrison had RBI hits to stake Winnipeg to a 2-0 lead.

The RedHawks threatened to score in the second inning as their first two hitters reached base. But first baseman Ruben Salazar hit into a triple play to squelch the potential rally.

Juan Diaz hit a solo home run in the third inning and Cody Ehlers cracked a two-run home run in the fourth inning to help the Goldeyes build their lead.

Winnipeg right-handed starter Andrew Cruse pitched the first complete game of his career and the second complete game shutout in Goldeyes playoff history.

RedHawks right-hander Matt Mossey is scheduled to start tonight’s Game 4.
