SIOUX FALLS, SD - The Sioux Falls Canaries offense was held hitless for 6 1/3 innings on Friday night, but battled back for a 2-1 walk-off win in front of 1,857 fans at Sioux Falls Stadium.

The left-hander and would load the bases with three straight walks before allowing RedHawks outfielder K.D. Kang to score on a wild pitch. Bywater settled down after that, retiring the final seven batters of the night, including a Kang strike out to end the 6th inning.

The right-hander retired the first eight Canaries batters before allowing Ozney Guillen to reach base on a two-out walk in the bottom of the 3rd inning. Guillen would advance to third base after a throwing error on an attempted stolen base, but was left stranded after Cameron Monger struck out to end the inning.

The Canaries were held hitless until the bottom of the 7th inning before David Bergin dropped a one-out single into left field. The Birds’ scored their first run of the night an inning later when Nolan Johnson reached base on a leadoff single and later scored an unearned run on a defensive error by K.D. Kang in right field.

RedHawks relief pitcher Colton Reavis ended Canaries threat in the 8th, retiring the final two batters of the inning. Reavis came back out to work the bottom of the 9th, striking out Ethan Chapman and David Bergin for the first two outs of the inning before giving up a walk-off homerun to outfielder Taylor Zuetenhorst.
