It took a couple extra innings, but the Winnipeg Goldeyes took care of business on Tuesday night.

Nick Liles drove home the winning run in the 12th inning as the Goldeyes evened up their series with a 3-2 win over the Sioux City Explorers.

“Neither team was really hitting the ball at all,” said Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea. “Our pitchers kept us in the game. We finally scratched one off on a good pitcher and got the W.”

Sioux City started the scoring in the third inning. They scored twice on a Bryan Pounds double with two outs to take the early lead. The Goldeyes would respond in the top half of the fourth. Josh Mazzola and Casey Haerther, who both came into the game struggling at the plate, hit back-to-back run scoring doubles to knot the game at 2-2.

The Goldeyes would come close to breaking the tie in the eighth inning. Winnipeg put two runners in scoring position with two outs, but Explorers reliever Jimmer Kennedy got Mazzola to strike out swinging to end the threat. Neither team could break the deadlock through nine, sending the game into extra innings.The bullpens continued to hush the bats before the Goldeyes came through in the 12th. Amos Ramon reached on an error to Pounds and with two outs and on a 0-2 count, Liles drove him in for the game winning run.

Patrick Keating worked his longest outing of the season to improve to 4-0. He pitched 3 1/3 innings of relief, while striking out five. He did not allow an Explorer to reach base. Matt Rusch had an impressive start for Winnipeg, going seven strong innings before turning it over to the bullpen.

Cody Satterwhite factored in the decision for the second straight night, this time on the losing side of things. He pitched two innings and allowed only the one hit to Liles, which brought home the game winning, unearned run in the 12th.

The Goldeyes will look to take the series tomorrow night at Lewis & Clark Park. Winnipeg will send lefthander Pete Gehle to the mound for a 7:00 p.m. start. The pre-game show with Paul Edmonds begins at 6:30 p.m. on TSN 1290.
