WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Fargo-Moorhead heads into the American Association's North Division playoff game on a five-game winning streak after the RedHawks' 9-3 win over Winnipeg on Monday at Shaw Stadium.

The RedHawks finished second in the North behind Chicago, which clinched the division with a win Sunday night. The Dogs also won Monday to take the division by 1-1/2 games. Milwaukee finished third and will play the RedHawks in a one-game playoff at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 8, at Newman Outdoor Field. The winner plays Chicago in a best-of-five series for the North title.

In the South Division, Cleburne hosts Sioux City at 7:06 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 8, in the one-game playoff, with the winner taking on division winner Kansas City in the best-of-five series. Sioux City lost Monday but held onto third when Lincoln, which was one-half game behind the Explorers, lost 2-0 to Houston, a team that finished 17-83 and 52 games behind Kansas City.

Nick Novak and Ed Reichenbach were the only regulars in the lineup for the RedHawks, who sent only half of its 24-man roster to Canada for the four-game series with the Goldeyes because of vaccination status and/or personal preference. Novak singled in a run in the RedHawks' six-run fourth inning and Reichenbach had two hits and scored a run. The rest of the run production came from the temp players.

Jacob Bockelie homered and drove in two runs and Sam Troyer also homered and had two RBI. Carson McCurdy was 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI and Mitch Piatnik singled in a run.
