One inning is all it took for it all to come undone.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes gave up nine runs in the fifth inning in a 9-3 loss to the Trois-Rivieres Aigles Monday night, dropping Winnipeg's record to 1-4 on this 10-game Can-Am League road trip.
The loss moves Winnipeg six-and-a-half games back of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in the American Association's North Division.
Winnipeg opened the scoring with two runs in the third inning, as Kevin Moesquit scored on a Trois-Rivieres error and Ryan Scoma singled in Fehlandt Lentini.
Goldeyes starter Edgar Osuna, who was making his Goldeyes debut, cruised through the first four innings, giving up just one hit. In the fifth inning, however, he found trouble that snowballed. After walking David Cooper and getting a fly out to start the inning, Osuna gave up a hit that scored Cooper and walk, which was his fifth of the outing. Gabe Aguilar came in to replace Osuna and gave up four straight hits to the Aigles before an error was made at second by Moesquit. Aguilar surrendered two more hits, a walk and a sac fly before getting out of the inning. In all, Trois-Rivieres sent 14 men to the plate in the fifth inning and scored the nine runs on seven hits and two Winnipeg errors.
The Goldeyes added a run in the eighth inning when Moesquit singled in Casey Haerther.
Moesquit, Haerther and Ray Sadler each had three hits for the Goldeyes, who left 12 men on base in the contest.
Osuna took the loss for Winnipeg, dropping to 0-1 on the season. Alexander Burkard pitched five innings to get the win for Trois-Rivieres.
