You just never know when the Winnipeg Goldeyes offence is going to explode. Saturday night in front of 3,023 spectators in Wichita, Kansas, the Goldeyes put up three runs in the top of the eighth to come from behind and beat the Wichita Wingnuts 6-4. Trailing 4-1 after the second inning, the Goldeyes battled back with a pair of runs in the fifth and three more in the eighth and won their fifth straight game, locked up the three-game series with their second straight win in Wichita, improved to 26-15 and remained in first place in the American Associations North Division. It was a big win for the Goldeyes as second-place Sioux Falls took a double header from Gary and cut Winnipegs first-place lead to 3.5 games. The Wingnuts lost their second straight game to Winnipeg and fell to 30-11 on the season. "We came out a little flat today," said pitching coach Bill Pulsipher on the TSN 1290 post-game show. "Matt (Rusch) didnt have a great warm-up today but he hung in there long enough for the guys to get going and score a few runs. "Matt has been the leader of our staff along with Ace (Walker) but I dont think there is a better pitcher in the American Association right now. I dont think the homeplate umpire knew who was pitching tonight because I thought the umpire was really hard on him in the first few innings." The Goldeyes took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first as leadoff man Price Kendall walked, went to third on a single by Chris Roberson and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jon Weber, but Wichita answered in the bottom of the first with a single run off starter Matt Rusch and then scored three in the second to take a 4-1 lead. Neither team scored until the fifth when Kendall singled, Roberson walked, both runners moved up 90 feet on stolen bases and then both runners scored on a single by Luis Alen. In the eighth, the Goldeyes took a 6-4 lead as Alen walked and scored on a double by Gabby Martinez. Josh Mazzola reached first on a dropped third strike as Martinez went to third. Martinez scored on a single by Kyle Day and Mazzola went to third. Mazzola scored on a passed ball and the Goldeyes had enough to win their fifth straight game. Kyle Day drove in the game-winning run for the third straight game. Reliever Zach Baldwin (1-1, 7.84 ERA) got the win while Dexter Carter (2.42 ERA) picked up his fifth save by throwing a scoreless ninth. Wingnuts reliever Edgar Martinez (0-1, 9.00 ERA) suffered the loss. "Dexter has really blossomed in the role as the closer," said Pulsipher. "The extra intensity hes getting by throwing the final inning with all that pressure has been good for Dexter and hes really using this opportunity to his advantage." The Goldeyes and Wingnuts will play the final game of this three-game series in Wichita this afternoon. Game time is 2:05 p.m. and it can be heard live on TSN 1290 with Paul Edmonds, starting with 55 with Forney at 12:30 p.m. Montee Ball Jersey. The Pirates have now won two straight interleague matchups, which is a minor miracle considering they came into the season with baseballs worst interleague record at 73-123. Yesterday, Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-4 and scored twice, while pinch-hitter Matt Diaz had a two-run single, as the Pirates downed the reeling Tigers, 6-2. Andre Caldwell Jersey. A.J.

Tom Jackson Jersey. -- Brady Quinn and the Seattle Seahawks have officially finalized their deal to make him the backup quarterback to starter Russell Wilson.TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on the unfortunate injury of Eric Bledsoe, the growth of Gordon Hayward, the future of LaMarcus Aldridge, David Lees rebounding ability and the suspension of Andre Miller. 1. ERIC BLEDSOE (Suns): What a shame. Another injury to a very good player. Hes played terrific ball for his team this year and the idea of playing two point guards together along with Goran Dragic worked out beautifully for their team. Tough road ahead for this squad without him. Hes the guy that sets the tone defensively for them and his toughness was impressive. The move to Phoenix was a perfect landing spot for him. Hopefully, he gets back sooner rather than later and in good health. 2. GORDON HAYWARD (Jazz): Did you see him the other night vs. OKC? Awesome. 37 pts, 11 rebounds and seven assists. A young player whose game and confidence has grown and, considering that he decided not to accept Utahs contract offer in the off season, it will be a very interesting and fruitful negotiation for him with his current employer and hell have lots of interest in the open market. 3. LA MARCUS ALDRIDGE (Blazers): His team has had a great run so far this season at 28-9 and now, for the first time, hes given indications that hed consider signing an extension to stay in Portland after expressing his frustration with playing there this past summer. What a diifference winning makes.dddddddddddd The addition of Robin Lopez has taken lots of interior heat off him and being surrounded by terrific 3-point shooting and a wonderful young lead guard in Damian Lillard has a way of opening your eyes to the fact that the grass isnt always greener. Awesome fan base and a market with a nice tradition. Good place to consider staying. 4. DAVID LEE (Warriors): This guy gets hammered a lot for his sketchy defence, and I understand it sometimes, but this guy can score and board effectively. Look at what hes done in the last 12 games while his team went 11-1. 22 points and 10 rebounds a night is impressive and Id say most teams could handle that from their power forward. Is he perfect? Far from it, yet hes better than most. I still think he contributes more to the winning than being the cause of the struggles. 5. ANDRE MILLER (Nuggets): Ive always been a huge fan of his game and quiet leadership. Hes been a very good pro and, in my opinion, could still start for a bunch of teams in the league. Unfortunate situation right now with his suspension in Denver. I like head coach Brian Shaw a whole lot and its a shame that it looks like hell be parting ways with the team at some point. If Im a team in need of a guy who will make all the smart plays and give you solid D as well, Im in the market for him, thats for sure. ' ' '
