MUNICH, Germany -- Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara will be out for six to eight weeks after suffering an extended partial ligament tear in his right knee on Saturday. The club says the Spaniard will miss both Champions League quarterfinal games against Manchester United and the semifinals should Bayern progress. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola says "its bad news. Were going to miss him a lot." Thiago suffered the injury in the first half of Bayerns 3-3 draw at home with Hoffenheim. An MRI scan late Saturday by team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt confirmed the extent of the injury. Teammate Thomas Mueller says, "its very bitter and comes at a catastrophic time, just before the important games." Bayern clinched the Bundesliga in record time on Tuesday and hopes to defend its Champions League crown. If battling back is a sign of a team that knows how to win, the Winnipeg Goldeyes presented a strong case Wednesday night. The Goldeyes came back from two deficits to beat the Kansas City T-Bones 7-5 before 6,523 joyous fans at Shaw Park. The win moves Winnipeg 6 1/2 games ahead of the St. Paul Saints in the American Associations North Division and extends the Goldeyes winning streak to a season-high seven games. “These guys never give up,” Goldeyes outfielder Reggie Abercrombie said of his teammates, who despite the win stranded a season-high 13 runners on the base paths. “Every time you go out there, you expect to be in the game.” After Winnipeg opened the scoring in the bottom of the second inning on a Kansas City error, the T-Bones struck for four runs against Goldeyes starter Chris Salamida in the top of the third. The T-Bones batted around in the inning and had five hits. The Goldeyes dug into the deficit with two runs in the bottom of the fifth, as Casey Haerther, who doubled to lead off the inning, scored on a sac fly and Luis Alen drove in Abercrombie with a single. Winnipeg tied the game an inning later when Ray Sadlers sac fly brought home Josh Mazzola. The T-Bones quickly regained the lead with a run in the top of the seventh, but the Goldeyes didnt stay behind for long. With runners on second and third and two out in the bottom half of the seventh, Tyler Kuhn ripped a shot down the firstt base line to score Abercrombie and Brock Bond, who reached base on an infield single.dddddddddddd. “I got a slider down and in and was able to get it up high enough to get it over the first basemans glove,” Kuhn said of his game-winning hit. “I dont turn on too many balls down the line, so I was happy to get that one.” Mazzola then doubled to score Kuhn. “The pitching held us in the game,” Abercrombie said. “We feel if the pitching holds us in the game, were going to come back on anyone. We have a lot of confidence in ourselves to go out and get it done.” Haerther led Winnipeg with three hits, while Kuhn had two RBI. Buried in the comeback was Salamidas record-setting night. He stuck out the first two batters he faced in the top of the first to pass Ace Walker for the franchise strikeout record. Salamida struck out six T-Bones in six innings of work and now has 385 Ks as a member of the Goldeyes in five seasons with the team. Gabe Aguilar, who gave up Kansas Citys go-ahead run in the seventh inning, swooped in to vultur his fifth win of the season. Chris Kissock pitched the top of the ninth for his 10th save of the season. Jared Messer took the loss for Kansas City. The Goldeyes will go for the sweep Thursday night at Shaw Park. Nick Hernandez (4-0, 3.56) will toe the rubber for Winnipeg against Kansas Citys Kyle DeVore (2-1, 2.29). Game time is 6 p.m. ' ' '
