WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Fargo-Moorhead rallied from five runs down early but couldn't sustain the comeback attempt and Logan Hill's solo home run in the eighth inning lifted Winnipeg to a 7-6 win Saturday before 2,702 at Shaw Park.

The RedHawks trailed 6-1 after two innings but scored a run in the third on Sam Dexter's solo home run and and three more in the fourth on Kevonte Mitchell's three-run shot to pull within a run.

John Silviano's solo homer in the eighth inning tied the game 6-6 but Hill returned the favor with one out in the home half of the inning.

Goldeyes reliever Erasmo Pinales walked Sam Dexter to lead off the ninth but then erased Dexter on a fielder's choice and got two fly outs to end the game. Silviano's homer was the only hit and run four Goldeyes relievers allowed over the final five innings.

F-M's Drew Ward and Silviano both homered for a second straight night.
