Grant Heyman hit a three-run homer in the tenth inning and the Winnipeg Goldeyes outlasted the Lincoln Saltdogs 6-3 on Wednesday night.

Lincoln Saltdogs

The Saltdogs (32-36) summoned closer Jose Jose to try to preserve a 3-3 tie in the top of the 10th inning.  The lefty induced a double play off the bat of Reggie Abercrombie to record the first two outs of the frame.  Then, Josh Mazzola reached on an infield single to keep the inning alive.  Next, Tucker Nathans hit a ground ball to second base.  T.J. Bennett gloved it but his throw drew Dan Johnson’s foot off first base letting the runner reach.  The next batter, Heyman, mashed a homer of the right field wall to give the Goldeyes (30-40) the 6-3 lead.
