Pike Hurls, Bats Power RedHawks over Goldeyes, 7-1
FARGO, ND — Behind a stellar pitching performance from starting pitcher Tyler Pike, the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks picked up a series split with the Winnipeg Goldeyes this Monday evening in front of 4,064 fans at Newman Outdoor Field to finish their seven game homestand 5-2.
The Goldeyes got on the board in the first inning with an RBI groundout to drive in Carlos Garcia, who hit a triple to right center field earlier in the inning. Correlle Prime got the RedHawks’ offense started in the fourth inning with a 2-run home run over the center field wall to give Fargo-Moorhead a 2-1 lead.
The RedHawks added on to their lead in the fifth with three more home runs off the bats of Tim Colwell, Chris Jacobs, and T.J. Bennett. When the dust settled at the end of the inning, the RedHawks had a 6-1 lead heading into the sixth inning.
Pike went 7 strong innings in his second start at home since returning from the injured list, allowing 1 earned run on 8 hits, walking 2 Goldeyes, and picking up 6 strikeouts to pick up his sixth win of the season.
Daniel Comstock was the last RedHawk to join the home run parade with a solo shot in the eighth inning, allowing the bullpen to coast to 7-1 victory over the fish.
Fargo-Moorhead will continue its North Division schedule tomorrow night in Gary against the RailCats. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
