Canaries Snap RedHawks' Winning Streak in Extra Innings
FARGO, N.D. - The Sioux Falls Canaries (28-24) scored three runs in the top of the 11th inning on Wednesday night to beat the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (25-28) 4-1 and snapped the RedHawks' eight-game losing streak.

Tied 1-1 in the middle of the ninth inning, a 37-minute rain delay extended the evening for both teams before Damek Tomscha gave the Canaries their first lead of the night with a solo home run off Bret Helton (4-2, 3.63 ERA) in the 11th. Mike Hart tripled home two more insurance runs to give the Canaries a 4-1 lead.
