For the second straight week, the Winnipeg Goldeyes teed off on Jason Jarvis. The Goldeyes scored seven times in the first two innings off the Sioux City starter on their way to a 9-3 win over the Explorers on Tuesday night. "The bats were hot early," said Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea. "We jumped out to a big lead and that takes a lot of pressure of your starter and hes able to settle in." With the win, Winnipeg moves within 2 1/2 games of the wild card. The Gary SouthShore RailCats, holders of the final American Association playoff spot, had their game with the Wichita Wingnuts postponed due to rain. "We just got to keep putting the pressure on them," said Vermilyea. "If they see us winning games, they might start playing a little tighter. Every game counts and we just got to keep on winning." Winnipeg scored twice in the opening inning off RBI hits from Yurendell de Caster and Ray Sadler. Then, they would bust it open in the second. Luis Alen expanded the lead to three when he came home on an error by Explorers third baseman Jeff Squier. That was the second error of the inning by Squier and Sioux City had yet to record an out. With the score now 5-0, Sadler and Josh Mazzola hit back-to-back, bases loaded singles with two outs to bring the Goldeyes lead to seven. That would cap a five-run, five-hit inning for the Fish. The errors by Squier and an additional one committed by Jarvis made all five runs unearned for the Explorers starter. Sadlers second double of the game brought home one of the two runs scored by the Goldeyes in the fourth inning to make it 9-0. That would be more than enough run support for Goldeyes starter Matt Jackson, who picked up his second win as a member of the Goldeyes. He worked eight innings and gave up a run in the fourth and two in the fifth, but Sioux City could not comeback from the large early deficit. Jarvis went five and a third innings and took the loss after the Goldeyes hit him for nine runs - four earned - on 14 hits. His previous start was last week in Winnipeg, where he gave up 11 runs in less than four innings of work. The Goldeyes will continue their playoff push tomorrow in the third game of this four-game set. Edgar Osuna gets the start for Winnipeg. Game time is 7 p.m. with the pre-game show on TSN 1290 beginning at 6:30 p.m. with Paul Edmonds.

After Peters stopped Jussi Jokinen, the Capitals turned to Ovechkin.The NHL leader in goals last season struggled in shootouts, finishing 2 of 16. He missed his only prior chance this season.Trotz passed on using Ovechkin in Tuesdays shootout loss to San Jose, and didnt exactly pick him this time, either.I honestly didnt make the call on third shooter, Trotz said. I went over to (assistant Blaine Forsythe) and said, Youve got to make the call on the third shooter.Im not taking any credit for that.When Ovechkin later noted to his coach about being skipped previously, Trotz told his star, Youre right and I didnt put you in today.(Ovechkin) showed some patience and he got the goalie to bite, Trotz said. Once the goalie was down, you know its going upstairs.One of the NHL leaders this season with five goals, Ovechkin failed to record a point for the first time in four games.That was probably (Ovechkins) weakest game so far this year for him because hes been pretty outstanding, Trotz said.The Panthers have scored five goals in five games. They did earn another road point following Fridays win at Buffalo.Definitely a big point tonight, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said.dddddddddddd We didnt have a great first two periods.In the third, I thought we picked it up and we scored a power play goal.In a matchup of backups, Peters outdueled Al Montoya.

After receiving the pinpoint centring pass, Chimera faked Montoya out of position before backhanding the puck into the open net for a 1-0 lead 17:12 in.Neither team scored in the second period, but Brooks Laichs tip-in for Washington was disallowed because of a high-sticking call.Laich exited the game following a third period collision and didnt return. Trotz said Laich sustained an upper-body injury, but offered no additional information.Washington held Florida without a shot on its first three power plays, but the Panthers broke that cycle early in the third period.Peters stopped Sean Bergenheims close-range attempt, but Boyes put in the rebound 4:27 into the third to make it 1-1.Peters made his first start since Jan. 19 when he was with Carolina.NOTES: Dylan Olsen earned an assist on Boyes goal. ...
