WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Mike Gulino extended his hitting streak to six games and had the go-ahead RBI single in the 9th inning, and the Railroaders held on for a 12-7 win over the Winnipeg Goldeyes at Shaw Park on Wednesday night.

Cleburne jumped out to the quick lead in the 2nd before sending 10 men to the plate in the six-run 4th inning. Gulino drove in a run with a single and Angel Rosa doubled in two more before Sealey’s homer.
The Goldeyes answered immediately in the bottom of the 4th. Josh McAdams led off the frame with a double, and Tucker Nathans doubled him in before Josh Mazzola clubbed a two-run shot to make it 7-3.
The Goldeyes added another run on Mazzola’s sacrifice fly in the 6th inning, and after Josh Romanski’s RBI triple in the 7th, Reggie Abercrombie tied the game with a two-run shot.
Cleburne starter Jared Mortensen went 6.1 innings and gave up six runs on nine hits with one walk and four strikeouts.
Alex Polston singled to extend his hitting streak to nine games, and all nine Cleburne starters finished with a hit whule six of the nine finished with an RBI.
The Railroaders pegged Winnipeg starter J.C. Sulbaran for seven runs – two earned – over 3.2 innings, and the bullpen had pitched 4.1 scoreless innings before Capellan surrendered five runs.
Cleburne went 4-2 on the roadtrip and has won consecutive series for the first time since taking the first two series from Winnipeg and Fargo-Moorhead to open the season.
Cleburne returns home Friday, August 10th to begin a four-game set with the Wichita Wingnuts. All promo info and ticket info can be accessed on www.railroaderbaseball.com or by calling (817) 945-8705.
