Mann Earns First Win, Hawks Take 3 of 4 in Sioux Falls

06/01/2015 9:56 PM -

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The Sioux Falls Canaries got off to a slow start and were never able to catch up as their divisional foe, the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks tallied sixteen hits on six runs to take the series by a final score of 6-3 in front of 2,189 fans at Sioux Falls Stadium.

Canaries starting pitcher Brett Gerritse (0-3, 5.51 ERA) threw six innings for the Birds’, allowing four runs on thirteen hits to go along with five strikeouts. The right hander worked in and out of jams in the first two innings but ran into trouble allowing three runs in the top of the third. Gerritse gave up a run in the fourth, but settled in the middle innings before exiting the game in the seventh after a leadoff single to Fargo-Moorhead’s Frank Salerno.

RedHawk's starter Brandon Mann (1-1) earned his first victory of the season after pitching a solid six frames, giving up two runs (one earned) while striking out six. Ty Kelley came in during the ninth after a solid inning from setup man Paul Raglione and fanned three straight to earn his second save of the season. Kelley is a perfect 2-for-2 in save attempts this season. 

Lefty Josh Ferrell entered the game in relief and walked a batter, but didn’t allow a run in the seventh. Ferrell struck out the leadoff batter in the eighth, but three straight batters reached allowing two runs to score, pushing the RedHawks lead to 6-3.

Frank Salerno paced the RedHawks by going 3-for-5 from the dish with one RBI. Stefan Gartrell alos went 2-for-4 with two runs batted in. Drew Muren had a good evening at the plate going 2-for-4 with one run scored.

With the loss tonight, the Birds’ fall to 5-6 on the season, and finish their eight game home stand with a 3-5 record. With the win tonight and taking 3-of-4 at the Bird Cage, the RedHawks improve to 3-8 on the season. They return to Fargo-Moorhead to begin a six game homestand on Tuesday with defending American Association champion Wichita and Laredo.
