Andrus Peat Jersey . Howard hit a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.Such a promising start was wiped away so quickly. Michael Lewis Jersey . After opening the scoring, the Winnipeg Goldeyes (45-28) watched the Sioux City Explorers (32-42) do much of the rest of the scoring in a 10-3 loss Sunday night at Lewis and Clark Park in Iowa. Despite the loss, which drops Winnipegs record to 2-3 since the all-star break, the Goldeyes remain 3 ½ games up on the St. Paul Saints for first place in the American Associations North Division after the Saints lost to the Kansas City T-Bones. “We need to start pitching the ball better if were going to start winning some (consecutive) ballgames,” Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea said on the Jewel 101 post-game show. Winnipeg grabbed a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning when Brock Bond scored on a Reggie Abercrombie fielders choice and Donnie Webb doubled in Josh Mazzola. After that though, the Explorers scored once in the bottom of the first, twice in the second and twice in the third off Goldeyes starter Jon Sintes, who was making his American Association debut. Sioux City then pulled away with five runs off reliever Taylor Sewitt in the sixth inning. “You have to stay away from those crooked numbers as best you can,” Verrmilyea said. Frank Warren Jersey . “If you allow your opponent to put up those crooked numbers, its going to be tough to win.” Abercrombie scored the games last run in the top of the eighth after doubling, going to third on a wild pitch and coming home on a Webb ground out. Mazzola and Webb paced the Goldeyes with two hits each, while Webb had two RBI. Winnipeg failed to cash in on plenty of opportunities, as the visitors left 10 men on base, including nine in scoring position. Sintes suffered the loss after giving up five runs on 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings of work. He didnt issue a walk and struck out three. “All of his pitches move a lot,” Vermilyea said of his starter. “There were a couple infield hits and bloopers that would have been nice to have been outs, but thats the way it goes sometimes.” Explorers reliever Alex Burnett worked three innings of scoreless relief to earn the win. The second game of the four-game series goes Monday night in Sioux City. Matt Jackson (8-5, 3.96) will take the ball for Winnipeg against Sioux Citys Alex Caldera (0-1, 6.35).
