The Lincoln Saltdogs didnt do much against Winnipeg Goldeyes starter Ethan Hollingsworth, but they didnt have to. Josh Allen Bills Jersey . The Goldeyes couldnt solve the mystery of Marquis Fleming and fell 3-2 to the visitors on a cold, wet night at Shaw Park. In fact, after two and a half innings of action, the skies opened and there was an 81-minute rain delay. The two teams split the first two games and will head to Haymarket Park in Lincoln for the final three games (if necessary). The delay seemed to affect the Goldeyes more than Lincoln. The Saltdogs were leading 2-0 when the rain came and they added to their advantage before the Goldeyes started to scratch away. Trouble was, the Goldeyes couldnt get anything going until Donnie Webb hit a solo homer in the seventh. The Fish added a run in the eighth as Brock Bond scored on a ground out by Tyler Kuhn, but that was all the Fish could muster. The Goldeyes left a runner in scoring position in five different innings. "I thought we played pretty well, but they just got a better pitching performance than we did tonight," said Goldeyes manager Rick Forney. "Thats not to take anything away from Ethan (Hollingsworth). I thought he was terrific tonight, especially considering the elements, but Fleming was really good. He mixed up his pitches and kept the ball down in the strike zone. He was the difference tonight." Lincoln scored a run in the second on a double by former Goldeye Brian Joynt and an RBI single by Brandon Pinckney and then the visitors added a run in the third on a double by Tyler Smith and an RBI single by Matt Forgatch. It was 2-0 when the tarp was rolled out onto the field. Lincoln added to its lead and scored the eventual winning run in the fifth on a single by Chad Mozingo and an RBI fielders choice ground ball off the bat of Ian Gac. Fleming (1-0, 1.29 ERA), who allowed only one run on six scattered hits, picked up the victory for Lincoln while Hollingsworth (0-1, 3.86 ERA) suffered the loss. The league leader in saves this season, Marshall Schuler, picked up his first save of the post-season. The Saltdogs finished with three runs on 11 hits while the Goldeyes had two runs on eight hits. Catcher Luis Alen had three of them while Casey Haerther had two. Taron Johnson Jersey . scored 18 of his career- high 28 points in the first half, as fifth-ranked Ohio State dominated No. Buffalo Bills Jerseys . - The Detroit Lions have placed tight end Brandon Pettigrew on injured reserve, ending his season. http://www.authenticbillsfanatic.com/c-90-...ron-jersey.aspx . The freestyle skier from Calgary finished sixth in the qualification round with a total of 82.00 points. Groenewoud won a silver medal at the X Games last month, just over five weeks after undergoing double knee surgery.Every year you make sure to check out the players an organization sends to the Arizona Fall League. These can be players the team is fast tracking to the Bigs, players changing positions or players needing extra work while rehabbing from injuries. The Blue Jays have seven prospects playing this year with the Salt River Rafters: four pitchers, a catcher, an infielder and an outfielder. The four of most interest are all pitchers - Drew Hutchison, Marcus Stroman, Aaron Sanchez and John Stillson. Hutchison, coming off of Tommy John surgery, pitched 35.1 innings this past season split among Single, Double and Triple-A. Clearly, the Jays are trying to get him more work to hasten his return to the big club. Hutchison has been pretty sharp making four starts for the Rafters, going 1-0 with a 0.57 ERA and with two walks and 14 strikeouts over 15.2 innings. As good as he looked, when you consider how few innings he pitched this past season, it would still make a lot more sense for Hutchison to spend the bulk, if not the entire coming season, in Double and Triple-A. Aaron Sanchez is two years younger than Hutchison at 21, but is regarded as the Jays top pitching prospect what with the trades of Justin Nicolino to the Miami Marlins and Noah Syndergaard to the New York Mets a year ago. The only real knock so far on Sanchez has been his control. With the Rafters, he has eight walks in 13.1 innings, but otherwise, the numbers look pretty good. In four starts hes 0-1 with 10 strikeouts and a 1.35 ERA. However, it still looks as though hes at least another year away from a shot at the Majors. The other two are puzzlers. After a year starting at Double and Triple-A, 22-year-old Marcus Stroman is only working in relief in the AFL. Hes pitched in seven games, just 7.2 innings and is 0-2 with a 4.70 ERA. Hes struck out six and walked only 3 and opponents have only hit .207 off him. Alex Anthopoulos said towards the end of this season, he might trade some of the Blue Jays bullpen depth, to fill other holes. So, perhaps, Stroman will move into the Jays pen to fill one of the created openings. The fourth pitcher is right-hander John Stillson, who greatly impressed skipper John Gibbons last spring. The 23-year-old right out of Texas A&M went 6-2 at Triple-A Buffalo out of the bullpen with four saves. He struck out 47 and walked 15. Unfortunately, he hasnt pitched well in the AFL. Hes appeared in just three games out of the pen going only two-and-a-third innings and getting hit hard. Marshall Newhouse Bills Jersey. Stillsons ERA is 23.14 and batters are hitting .438 against him. Yes, there is still Kyle Drabek and the impending return of Brandon Morrow from his injury and the possibility that Ricky Romero has a shocking return to form, but its still pretty clear Alex Anthopoulos is going to have to do most of his searching for pitching help outside the organization in the off-season. Monday at 5:00pm et. is the deadline for teams to make qualifying offers of to their perspective free agents. The Blue Jays are not expected to tender right-hander Josh Johnson who went 2-8 in an injury plagued first campaign with the Jays. The Blue Jays were supposed to have met with their medical people over the weekend to determine if it was worth making Johnson any sort of offer at all, say in the $2-3M range for one season. Interest in Tanaka A reworked Japanese player-posting system havent been put into place yet, but the interest in Masahiro Tanaka continues to skyrocket. The 25-year-old who went 24-0 this season for the Rakuten Golden Eagles, threw 160 pitches in a complete game loss in Game 6 of the Japanese World Series to the Yomiuri Giants. The very next day, though, in Game 7, Tanaka came right back and threw 15 more pitches in the ninth to nail down the victory and give Rakuten its first league title ever. The New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs just a few of the clubs who want to get into the bidding once a new posting system is in place. Bay Area Share? There is a chance that the Oakland Athletics could be playing in the San Francisco Giants ballpark for the next two years. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, unless the As can get a two-year lease agreement in Oakland rather than the six-to-eight-year deal the O.co Coliseum people want, they will be playing out of AT&T Park as soon as this spring. The As want to maintain their flexibility so they can move someplace else if a new facility isnt built in Oakland. A few scheduling details would have to be worked out, since, right now, the As and Giants are both scheduled to play eight games at home on the same days. End of the Astrodome? The fate of the sports first indoor facility, the Houston Astrodome, could well be decided shortly. There is a vote being taken on Tuesday on a $217M bond issue on whether to transform the Astrodome into a convention and exhibition centre. If the nays carry the vote, the Astrodome, which opened in 1965, will be leveled.
