WINNIPEG, Manitoba — A choppy start turned into smooth sailing as Fargo-Moorhead cruised to a 5-4 win over Winnipeg before 2,055 on Saturday at Shaw Park.

As they did in Friday's win, replacement RedHawks did a lot of the heavy lifting against the Goldeyes on Saturday. Brendon Dadson hit a two-run home run in the first inning and Jacob Bockelie followed that with a solo shot for a 3-0 lead.

Winnipeg scored four in the first off F-M starter Marc-Andre Habeck to take the lead, but that was essentially the extent of the Goldeyes' offense. While Habeck walked six, he allowed just the four runs on five hits in six innings to get the win. Habeck and relievers Luke Lind, who went an inning, and Joe Jones, who went two and got the save, allowed just four more hits over eight scoreless innings.

Replacement player Cody Lovejoy hit a solo homer in the second to tie the game, and Nick Novak singled in Lovejoy with the eventual winning run in the fifth. Lovejoy also homered in Friday's 10-4 win.

Novak and Carson McCurdy both had two hits. Combined, the RedHawks' recent additions in the lineup Saturday were 6-of-18 (.333) with three home runs, three RBI and scored four of the five runs.


With Chicago winning on Saturday, F-M remains 1-1/2 games back of the Dogs in the North Division race with two games to play.

The RedHawks and Goldeyes play the third game of a four-game set at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 5. They close out the regular season at 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 6.
