RedHawks Rally For 3-2 Extra Inning Win Over Gary

The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks got a game-tying RBI single from Zach Penprase in the ninth inning and the eventual game-winning RBI single from freshly-signed Mike Coles in the top of the 10th inning as the 'Hawks rallied for a 3-2, 10-inning victory over the Gary SouthShore RailCats on Saturday Night at U.S. Steel Yard in Gary, IN.  Fargo-Moorhead improved to 3-5 with the win, while Gary droped to 4-5.

Cogan squared off with Fargo-Moorhead’s Scott Fogelson and the tandem sparkled in their efforts. Fogelson gave up an RBI double to Steve Haake in the bottom of the first and then began to dominate. Fogelson would only allow one hit over his next six innings of work. Cogan did not give up a run on five hits in six innings, striking out seven.

With Cogan in line for the win, the RedHawks went to work against the RailCats bullpen in the seventh. Jeff Fischer relieved Cogan and gave up a leadoff double to Jeremiah Piepkorn and walked Mike Coles. Fischer was pulled in favor of Edwin Walker who got Alan Rick to strikeout on a bunt attempt and then got Kole Zimmerman to pop out. With two on and two out, Zach Penprase delivered an RBI double to score Piepkorn and tie the game at 1-1. Neither Cogan or Fogelson would score a decision.

The RailCats finally got to the Fargo bullpen in the eighth. After a single by Jeff Beachum to leadoff the inning, Mike Massaro sacrificed Beachum into scoring position. Josh Giles (1-0) would enter in relief of Fogelson and would get Rob Marconi to fly out as Beachum advanced to third. Jay Pecci then caught the RedHawk defense napping as he laid down a two-out bunt single to score Beachum from third and give the RailCats a 2-1 lead going into the ninth.

Aaron Cook (0-1) came into the game to close it out and after getting the first two batters out, would give up single to Rick, would walk Zimmerman, and then Penprase would deliver another RBI to tie the game. In the tenth, Cook continued to work in relief. Yurendell DeCaster picked up a one-out infield single, Randall Simon drew a walk, and Piepkorn singled to load the bases. With the infield drawn in, Coles would chop a single into left over a leaping Beachum to give the RedHawks a 3-2 lead.

With Yosandy Ibanez on for the save, the RailCats put the tying run at third base with less than two outs in the bottom of the tenth. With Massaro at third and Marconi at first, Pecci grounded a ball to the third baseman DeCaster who threw home and Massaro was tagged out by the catcher Zimmerman. Ibanez would strike out Haake to pick up his second save in as many nights and give the RedHawks the series.

The RailCats (4-5) and RedHawks (3-5) close out the three-game set on Sunday at 2 p.m. with Gary’s Chris Jones (1-0) facing Fargo’s Nick Fellman (0-0).
