when Reg­gie Aber­crom­bie crushed a two-run home run to left field to make it 12- 4.

The Ca­naries added one in the eighth and Duffy struck again in the ninth with a solo home run.

On the mound

Starter Jack­son went five in­nings, giv­ing up nine hits and strik­ing out four. The win was his third straight and im­proved his record to 11- 6 on the sea­son.

Credit goes to the bullpen as well for shut­ting down any mo­men­tum the Ca­naries had, as re­liev­ers Gabe Aguilar and Kaohi Down­ing each came in for one in­ning af­ter Jack­son was pulled.

The Gold­eyes will close out the se­ries and go for the four-game sweep of the Sioux Falls Ca­naries to­day at 1:30 p.m.
