Huge 7th Inning Propels T-Bones Past RedHawks

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones continue to stay hot offensively as they defeated the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks, 9-5, at CommunityAmerica Ballpark in front of 10,143 fans Tuesday night.
The T-Bones, who have scored at least eight runs in five of their last seven games, were able to get off to a good start in the second inning behind Ryan Cavan’s RBI single to left field that scored Joe Rapp, who reached base on a single to left field. Later in the inning, the T-Bones loaded the bases with two outs, but Nate Tenbrink grounded out to second baseman Frank Salerno, but the T-Bones led 1-0.
The RedHawks answered in the top of the third inning as Chad Mozingo hit a single to centerfield that scored Frank Salerno from second base and tied the game 1-1.
Kansas City’s offense came alive again in the fifth inning. The first two batters reached, as Kyle Robinson led off the inning with a single and Adam Bailey blooped a base hit to left. Two batters later, Rapp launched a three-run home run to right against Fargo relief pitcher Bryan Blough that gave the T-Bones a 4-1 lead. Rapp was one of five T-Bones with at least two hits, led by Cavan and Robinson, who each had three.
In the sixth, Kansas City added two insurance runs as Bailey hit a triple down the right field line that scored Tenbrink, who walked earlier in the inning. The next batter, Robby Kuzdale, hit a double to right field that scored Bailey and gave the T-Bones a 6-1 lead.

Mozingo answered again in the eighth inning with a bases clearing double. After Joe Bonfe drove in Charlie Valerio, Mozingo bombed a double off the wall in left-center with the bases loaded. That brought the score to 9-5 but Fargo-Moorhead would get no closer. Mozingo ended the game going 3-for-5 with three hits and four RBIs. Joe Staley and Frank Salerno also went 2-for-4 from the dish.
Kansas City starting pitcher Casey Barnes (2-1) gave up one earned run, five hits, three walks and struck out two batters in 6 total innings. Kansas City relief pitcher Jonathan Kountis allowed four runs in the eighth inning, allowing Fargo to cut into Kansas City’s lead. Mike Mason (1-1) took the loss for the RedHawks. He went four innings, allowing seven hits and gave up three runs (two earned).
The T-Bones (6-11) and Fargo-Moorhead (5-14) will finish their three-game series Wednesday at 11:05 a.m. at CommunityAmerica Ballpark. At the conclusion of the game the RedHawks will take the bus to Gary, Indiana for a three game set before returning home for a seven game homestand with Sioux Falls and Winnipeg.
