Despite pounding out 12 hits, the Winnipeg Goldeyes have lost back-to-back games for just the second time this season. Custom Atlanta Braves Jerseys . The Goldeyes (14-9) fell 4-2 to the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (15-8) Saturday night before a full crowd of 4,571 at Newman Outdoor Field in Fargo. "We just struggled to get that big hit," Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea said on the Jewel 101 post-game show. "Its a tough loss." The loss drops Winnipeg a game behind Fargo for first place in the North Division. After Fargo took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on a home run from Ronnie Bourquin and an RBI double from Sawyer Carroll, Winnipeg tied the game in the top of the second. With two out, Donnie Webb scored on a Josh Mazzola triple and then Mazzola scored on a Casey Haerther single. Fargo re-took the lead with a run in the bottom of the second and went up 4-2 on a sac fly by Carroll in the fourth inning. Winnipeg had plenty of opportunities the take the lead, as the Goldeyes stranded 10 runners in the game, which was one less than their season high. The most glaring missed chance was in the sixth inning when Winnipeg loaded the bases with one out in the sixth inning, but came up empty. The Goldeyes also put runners on first and second in the ninth inning, but Ray Sadlers fly ball died at the left field wall to end the game. After the giving up four runs in the first four innings, Winnipegs pitching staff retired the last 14 batters they faced. Gabe Aguilar pitched 1 2/3 of scoreless work out of the bullpen, while Kaohi Downing came in for the final out of the bottom of the eight. Matt Jackson had his record drop to 3-2 after suffering the loss for Winnipeg. He gave up four runs and nine hits in six innings of work. "He scuffled early and definitely didnt have his best stuff, but he battled and kept us in the game," Vermilyea said. "It wasnt a quality start, but its definitely respectable and he gave us a chance to win." Jake Laber picked up the win for Fargo, while Nate Garcia worked out of trouble in the ninth inning for the save.The Goldeyes have now lost nine consecutive regular season games in Fargo dating back to 2012. The two sides will meet in the series finale Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. Coverage on Jewel 101 (100.7 FM) will begin with Around the Association, which was pre-empted due to technical difficulties prior to Saturdays game, at 12 p.m. Mike Foltynewicz Braves Jersey . -- The Florida Gators are first yet again this season. Tom Glavine Jersey . -- Billy Andrade hasnt played much competitive golf over the past four years.MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Teddy Bridgewater has already braced for the teasing to come.The rookie returned to his hometown Sunday and threw for two touchdowns, but the Minnesota Vikings twice blew a lead and lost to the Miami Dolphins 37-35 on a late safety.Bridgewater said his family and friends and Miami will be reminding him of the outcome.Im pretty sure I wont hear the end of it in the off-season, he said. We just made too many mistakes.The biggest came in the final minute, when the Vikings had a punt blocked for the game-deciding safety. Miami outscored Minnesota 23-18 in the wild fourth quarter.Both teams went into the game playing for pride rather than a post-season berth. Minnesota, which has been out of the playoff race since Thanksgiving, fell to 6-9 under first-year coach Mike Zimmer and blew a 14-point lead to lose for the second week in a row.We made too many mistakes and penalties in crucial situations, Zimmer said. All of the things Ive been trying to preach for 11 months, we didnt do today.The Dolphins improved to 8-7 and have a shot at their first winning season since 2008. Theyll sit out the playoffs for the sixth year in a row, but after the game, owner Stephen Ross announced coach Joe Philbin will return for a fourth season.Minnesota scored 15 points in an 11-second span in the fourth quarter to take the lead, but Miami then drove 80 yards and scored on Ryan Tannehills 3-yard pass to Damien Williams with 1:11 left to make it 35-all.Minnesota failed to pick up a first down, and after long snapper Cullen Loeffler bounced the ball to punter Jeff Locke, Terrence Fede blocked the punt out of the end zone for the game-winner.Jeff made the best that he could with the ball, a dejected Loeffler said. Thats what it cost us — the low snap.Vikings linnebacker Chad Greenway played following the death of his father during the week but was forced to leave the game in the first half with a knee injury. Darren ODay Jersey. Not what I had in mind, he said. Thats what makes matters worse.Bridgewater, who broke the Vikings rookie record with his 11th start at quarterback, went 19 for 25 for 259 yards.He continues to play well, Zimmer said. I thought he kept his composure.Tannehill went 35 for 47 for 396 yards, and directed an offence that totalled 36 first downs and 493 yards. He shook off a costly interception and two sacks and was knocked down at least eight other times.The Vikings trailed 28-20 but drove 59 yards for a touchdown and made the 2-point conversion. On the ensuing kickoff they recovered Jarvis Landrys fumble at the 5, and Matt Asiata ran for the go-ahead touchdown with 4:35 to go.Miami regrouped, and its tying drive was aided by a pass interference penalty on Xavier Rhodes on third-and-14. Williams scored on the next play.Safety Harrison Smith set up a touchdown when he blitzed and intercepted Tannehills pass at point-blank range deep in Miami territory. Three plays later, Bridgewater led Greg Jennings perfectly for a 21-yard score and a 14-0 lead.But the Vikings squandered an early two-touchdown cushion in a loss at Detroit last week, and they couldnt hold their leads against Miami, either. Lamar Millers 1-yard plunge on third down at the start of the fourth quarter put the Dolphins ahead for the first time.Notes: Minnesota allowed Miami to convert nine of 13 third downs. ...
