A good thing came to an end for the Winnipeg Goldeyes Tuesday night and Sioux City Explorers pitcher Patrick Johnson is largely to blame. Jim McMahon Jersey . The Goldeyes struck out 11 times at the hands of Johnson and had their franchise record 11-game winning streak end with a 2-1 loss to the Explorers before 5,010 fans at Shaw Park. The loss shrinks Winnipegs lead in the American Associations North Division to 8 1/2 games. "Johnson pitched a hell of a ballgame today," Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said. "At this level, you usually dont see that kind of arm speed and velocity. It was a good match up (for him) with that umpire (Nick Gonzalez). That umpire calls a high strike and its tough to catch up to when you dont see it all the time and have to guard against three other pitches. We were overmatched by this guy." Sioux City started the scoring in the top of the third inning. After Tommy Mendonca led off the with a triple, he scored on a two-out single by Oscar Mesa. Winnipeg had a golden opportunity to take the lead in the bottom of the fourth, but the Goldeyes left the bases loaded when Reggie Abercrombie struck out. "If we could have cashed our chips in the fourth inning, it would have been a totally different ballgame," Forney said. Winnipeg finally tied the game in the bottom of the eighth inning. Ryan Pineda led off with a single, went to second on a bunt by Tyler Kuhn, stole third and scored on a Josh Mazzola sac fly. The tie didnt last long, though. Former Goldeyes infielder Amos Ramon hit an RBI single the top of the ninth inning off Chris Kissock to regain the lead for the Explorers. "We were fortunate to get out of (the top of the ninth) with only giving up one run, but unfortunately that one run was enough for them to win the ballgame," Forney said. Kuhn was the only Goldeyes player to register a hit in the game. In fact, five Goldeyes didnt register a hit in the game, including Casey Haerther, whose 17-game hitting streak also came to an end. Goldeyes starter Chris Salamida posted his third consecutive quality start, allowing just one run in seven innings of work. He struck out seven and walked just one in a no-decision. Johnson picked up the win for Sioux City, while Kissock suffered the loss for Winnipeg. The second game of the three-game series goes Wednesday night at Shaw Park. American Association win-leader Matt Jackson (7-2, 2.83) will face Sioux Citys John Straka (4-4, 3.12). Richard Dent Jersey . -- So much for concern that running back Marshawn Lynch would be absent from the Seattle Seahawks minicamp. Sam Acho Jersey . The goals took Liverpools tally in the Premier League this season to 70, overtaking Manchester City as the top scorers, and left the fourth-place team just four points behind league leader Chelsea. http://www.authenticbearsnflfansmall.com...ersey.aspx . The Kelowna, B.C. rink made the announcement on their facebook page on Thursday night.The Pittsburgh Penguins dealt a top scoring winger, improving their forward depth in the process. Numbers Game breaks down the trade sending James Neal to Nashville for Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling. The Predators Get: RW James Neal. Neal, 26, is a power forward who has been riding high while playing on Evgeni Malkins wing for the bulk of his time in Pittsburgh. Over the past three seasons, he has scored 88 goals, which ranks fifth, behind Alex Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos, Corey Perry and Phil Kessel. Hes also put up dominant possession stats, but a lot of that would figure to be related to the favourable ice time that he gets with Malkin. While the Predators are aiming to get more scoring in their game, they dont nearly have the playmakers to compare with Pittsburgh, so if Neal ends up playing with Mike Fisher, Colin Wilson or Calle Jarnkrok, none of them is particularly dominant offensively, so expect Neals production to dip. The question is, how far? Before he joined the Penguins, Neal had 131 points in 214 games with the Dallas Stars, a 50-point pace over an 82-game season. That should be about the baseline, with room to move up because Neal currently is a better player than he was from age 21 to 23, but we can also keep in mind that Neal has scored more than 60 points twice in his career. Neal is signed for four more years, at a cap hit of $5-million per season, so hes a reasonably-priced first line forward for the Predators. The Penguins Get: RW Patric Hornqvist and LW Nick Spaling. Hornqvist is a 27-year-old winger who has been one of the more prolific shooters in the game over the past five seasons. Hes a four-time 20-goal scorer who is most effective right around the crease, deflecting shots and knocking in rebounds. He played primarily with Mike Fisher last season (with Colin Wilson and Matt Cullen their most common linemates) and while that line was effective -- Hornqvists relative possession stats have always been really good --- its not quite as dynamic as what opportunities Hornqvist should have in Pittsburgh. Mike Singletary Jersey. If Neal is expected to see his scoring go down as a result of this trade, naturally Hornqvist should expect an uptick in his scoring numbers. He scored a career-high 53 points last season and while his on-ice shooting percentage was a career-best, it wasnt outrageous and is still below what is typical for wingers alongside Malkin or Crosby. Signed for four more years, at a cap hit of $4.25-million, Hornqvist comes a little cheaper than Neal, but not dramatically, so the Penguins have to expect that they are not going to lose much offensively. Spaling, 25, scored a career-best 32 points last season, playing a career-high 16:01 per game, and while he may not play quite as much in Pittsburgh, the hope is that he might help the Penguins bottom six forwards. However, Spalings possession stats have been rough for most of his time in Nashville, which doesnt suggest that hell be turning the tide on his own. A restricted free agent who earned $1.5-million last season, Spaling is looking at a raise, but the Penguins are probably not in position to give him a lot more money, but they need Spaling to give them more reliable minutes on the third line. It didnt come as a massive surprise that the Penguins moved Neal -- it has been rumoured as a possibility for some time -- but the return may be something of a surprise. The Penguins didnt save a bunch of money; rather, they found a couple of forwards with the hope that will help improve their depth up front. They sacrificed the most talented player in the deal, though, and that presents a certain amount of risk, particularly if Hornqvist doesnt produce at the same level. For a Nashville team that is making a concerted effort towards a more offensive style, Neal is a big addition, well worth the price they paid.
