WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Canada – In a game that didn’t feature the drama of the first two nights of the series, the Winnipeg Goldeyes completed a three-game sweep of the Kansas City T-Bones with a 2-0 win Sunday afternoon at Shaw Park.

After back-to-back nights of walk-off wins for the Goldeyes — 16-15 in 11 innings Friday and 5-4 in nine innings Saturday — Winnipeg got behind a strong pitching performance by starter Edwin Carl and handed Kansas City its season-high fifth consecutive loss.

The T-Bones, after getting 24 hits in the first two games of the series, struggled to get their offense going against Carl (6-5), who allowed only two hits, a first-inning single to Tyler Massey and a seventh-inning single to Dalton Wheat, which extended Wheat’s hitting streak to eight games.

The only time Kansas City really threatened offensively was in the fourth inning. The T-Bones loaded the bases with one out, thanks to an error by Winnipeg third baseman Wes Darvill that put Starlin Rodriguez on base, and then walks to Massey and Anthony Gallas. But Vladimir Frias grounded into a fielder’s choice that allowed first baseman David Rohm to force out Rodriguez at home, and then Wheat ended the inning with a strikeout.

In the bottom of that inning, the Goldeyes took a 1-0 lead. Josh Romanski reached on a one-out single and stole second, before Darvill knocked him in with a base hit off Kansas City starter Josh Hodges.

Winnipeg extended its lead in the sixth inning after Frias extended the inning with an error. Frias bobbled a two-out grounder by Rohm with Reggie Abercrombie at second. The next batter, Darvill, got his second RBI of the game as he roped a base hit to right center that scored Abercrombie and gave the Goldeyes a 2-0 lead.

Hodges (3-6) scattered seven hits and one walk, and allowed two runs (one earned) in 6 1/3 innings. Hodges also struck out seven. For Winnipeg, Carl struck out six, walked four and allowed the two hits in 6 innings. Eric Eadington pitched the final three innings and got his fourth save of the season.

Kansas City (29-39) is off until Thursday for the All-Star break. They’ll resume play with a four-game series at Sioux City. All of the action can be heard online at TBonesBaseball.com.
