5, 658 fans packed Shaw Park for matinee baseball on Thursday in Winnipeg, but the Canaries spoiled the party with a road victory. The damage started early, as the Canaries plated four runs in the top of the first inning. DH Richard Stock recorded an RBI single, followed by a two-RBI double from RF Jason Repko (pictured). C Tyler Shover capped off the inning’s scoring with an RBI single of his own.
