WINNIPEG, MB (CANARIES) — Akeem Bostick threw seven shutout innings and Spencer Sarringar went 3-4 with an RBI to help the Canaries top Winnipeg 2-0 Monday night at Shaw Park.
Darnell Sweeney doubled to begin the second inning and scored on a two-out single from Sarringar.
Sweeney crossed home plate again in the ninth inning, this time on a double by Hunter Clanin and that was more than enough run support for a trio of Sioux Falls pitchers.
Bostick, Christian Johnson and Charlie Hasty combined to limit the Goldeyes to five hits as the Birds blanked a divisional opponent for the second time in four days.
The victory moves the Canaries to 45-43 overall and within one game of second place in the West Division. The Birds will try for a third consecutive win when the two teams meet again Tuesday at 6:30pm.
