Winnipeg starting pitcher Edwin Carl and two relievers combined on a four-hit shutout as the Goldeyes defeated Wichita, 5-0 to take a 1-0 series lead in the American Association Championship Series. Carl was solid on the mound tonight as he went 6 2/3 innings allowing only a walk and four hits while striking out five batters. The righty earned the victory and is now 2-0 in the postseason.
