Justin Edwards twirled 6 2/3 strong innings to lead the Saltdogs (23-34) to a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Goldeyes (33-23) at Haymarket Park Tuesday night.

Asif Shah tied the game in the bottom of the fifth with a mammoth solo home run to right, his third of the season.

Lincoln took the lead on a Stephen Holdren RBI single to right in the sixth, part of a 3-for-4 day for the Saltdogs left fielder.

P.J. Zocchi worked a scoreless ninth with a strikeout to record his 13th save of the season.

Winnipeg opened the scoring in the top of the fourth inning on a Jose Duran single to center field.

12 of the 23 wins this season by the Saltdogs have been by a one-run margin.

Shortstop Miguel Chacoa finished 2-for-4 with a double in the win.

The teams meet Wednesday night at 7:05 p.m. for the rubber match of the three-game series. Tommy Palica (1-4, 6.75) will pitch for the 'Dogs against Todd Privett (3-3, 4.09) for the Goldeyes.
