Goldeyes Complete Sweep With No-Hitter

Goldeyes Complete Sweep With No-Hitter
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It was a rough Wednesday night for the Sioux Falls Canaries at the Birdcage as they dropped both games of a seven-inning apiece doubleheader to the Winnipeg Goldeyes following a rainout Tuesday evening.  The team from Canada took the first contest 7-1 thanks to a complete game from starting pitcher Chris Salamida and completed the two-game sweep with a combined no-hit 3-0 victory over the Canaries (6-13).
“I don’t know that there’s a way to be more frustrated,” said manager Steve Shirley.  “I appreciate the effort given by our starting pitchers and our bullpen, but even the pitchers would be hard pressed to say, ‘Boy we pitched great but we lost.’”
The Canary bats continued their struggles into the second game of the day despite being backed by a solid starting performance from Joe Bircher, who allowed three earned runs in six innings while whiffing four and walking two. 
“He (Bircher) threw the ball really well,” said Shirley.  “In this league if you give six innings and give up two or three runs, that’s a winnable start. That’s a start that you anticipate being able to do enough to be competitive.”
Winnipeg used five different pitchers to curtail the Sioux Falls offense, allowing the only Canary baserunners of the night on three walks.  Goldeye starting pitcher Gabe Aguilar left the game after only 2.1 innings, though his colleagues would have no problem carrying the load the rest of the way for the 3-0 no-hitter.  The Canaries finished the day’s doubleheader being outscored by their opponent 10-1 and now find themselves in the midst of a five-game losing streak.
“From a pitching standpoint I’m not disappointed at all,” said Shirley.  “From a defensive standpoint I’m not disappointed at all. From an offensive standpoint, how can you not be disappointed?”
The Sioux Falls Canaries will finish their eight-game homestand tomorrow hoping to avoid a sweep against the Winnipeg Goldeyes with a 7:05 PM start. Fans can get $1 beers (12 oz.) from gates opening until first pitch; $2.50 after first pitch.
