Silviano Ends Marathon, Dorminy Dominates – American Association Daily
American Association Daily provides insights, features, and recaps of the action from around the American Association of Professional Baseball League, as well as player and coaching profiles and transactions. In today’s edition of American Association Daily Recap, Robert Pannier recaps a great day in the American Association, including the Winnipeg Goldeyes sweeping a double-header and the Saints winning a marathon contest in 13.
Goldeyes Sweep Double-Header with RedHawks
The Winnipeg Goldeyes swept a double-header from the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Thursday evening. Game 1 was an outstanding pitching duel between Goldeyes starter Kevin Hilton and RedHawks hurler John Anderson. Hilton allowed a run in five innings. Jose Jose and Victor Capellan then finished it off, as each tossed a scoreless inning of relief in the 2-1 victory.
Winnipeg took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third when Wes Darvill walked, stole second and scored on a wild throw. In the fifth, Darvill drove home John Nester to extend the lead to two. Fargo-Moorhead got a run back in the bottom of the frame when Dario Pizzano blasted his first homer of the year, but the team would get no closer.
In Game 2, the Goldeyes scored runs in each of the first five innings on their way to an 8-4 victory. Kyle Martin had two hits and drove in two as Winnipeg made the most of their opportunities, scoring eight runs on 10 hits and six walks.
Silviano Homer Gives Saints Victory in 13
John Silviano homered with one down in the top of the 13th to give the St. Paul Saints a 4-3 victory over the Sioux Falls Canaries. Silviano ended the marathon affair with his fourth hit of the game. He also finished with three RBI.
Sioux Falls had trailed by three entering the bottom of the ninth but rallied to tie the score. Alay Lago drove in two and Damek Tomscha plated the other. That ruined the second straight outstanding outing by Mike Devine, who tossed 6.2 scoreless innings for St. Paul. Nick Belzer earned the victory with two scoreless innings of relief.
Dogs Dorminy Dominates Milkmen, 7-2
Thomas Dorminy allowed two runs in 6.2 innings to lead the Chicago Dogs to a 7-2 victory over the Milwaukee Milkmen. Dorminy won his American Association leading third game of the season, giving up just two hits and four walks while striking out nine. Six different Chicago players drove in runs. Ryan Haug reached base three times and scored two runs for the Dogs. Adam Walker had two hits, including his league leading fourth homer of the year.
