They needed a little help from their opposition, but the Winnipeg Goldeyes continue to close the gap in the American Association wild card race. The Goldeyes scored two runs in the top of the ninth inning without a hit to beat the Sioux City Explorers 6-5 Monday night at Lewis and Clark Park in Iowa.With the win, Winnipeg is now just three games back of the Gary SouthShore RailCats in the American Association wild card race and have won six of their last seven games. After the Explorers snagged an early 1-0 lead, the Goldeyes slapped two runs on the board in the fourth and fifth innings.An error by Sioux City left fielder Yusuke Inoguchi in the fourth allowed Ryan Scoma to score on a Ray Sadler fly ball. Sadler wound up on third base on the play and scored a batter later thanks to a Josh Mazzola single. In the fifth, Scoma singled with two outs and scored on a triple Sadler, who touched home plate again on a Mazzola single. Sioux City chipped away with a run in the bottom of the fifth inning and then struck for three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, as they loaded the bases with one out and Goldeyes reliever Chris Kissock walked in a run and gave up a two-run single to Leugim Barroso. “(Brendan) Lafferty and Kissock have been pitching their butts off for us this year,” Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea said on the TSN 1290 post-game show. “Eventually they are going to give up some runs.” Three walks by the Sioux City bullpen in the top of the ninth inning loaded the bases. Scoma hit a ground ball up the middle, which forced out Chris Salamida, who was pinch-running for Yurendell de Caster, at second. However, Explorers shortstop Barroso threw the ball away trying to turn a double play, allowing the tying and winning runs for Winnipeg to score.“I was pretty confident we were going to score. Weve been doing it recently, so theres no reason to think it was going to change,” Vermilyea said.Scoma and Mazzola paced the Goldeyes with two hits each. Goldeyes starter Matt Rusch battled for seven innings, giving up just two runs on eight hits. Despite blowing the save, Kissock picked up his second win of the save. Patrick Keating shut the door in the ninth to earn his 16th save of the season. The Goldeyes and Explorers meet again in Sioux City Tuesday night.
