KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones were back in the groove Tuesday night, defeating the Sioux Falls Canaries 3-2 at T-Bones Stadium. The decision marks the eleventh win for the T-Bones in their last 13 games.

Sioux Falls took an early lead, scoring two runs in the third inning. Despite a valiant attempt at a diving catch by T-Bones’ Dexter Kjerstad, Patrick Fiala reached second with a shot to the left field corner. Fiala then advanced to third on a wild pitch and was brought home on an RBI single by Jordan Smith, making the score 1-0 Sioux Falls.

Smith later raced to steal second, and as the catcher attempted the throw-out, the ball ricocheted off the runner into the outfield, allowing him to move up to third. A sacrifice fly by Canaries’ shortstop Blake Schmit scored Smith, giving Sioux Falls a 2-0 lead.

Mason Davis answered back in the T-Bones half of the third inning, leading off with a base hit to right center field. He went on to steal second and was later brought home with an infield single by Nick Torres, making the score 2-1 Sioux Falls.

In the seventh, the T-Bones took advantage of Canaries’ reliever Nicco Blank (3-2). Todd Cunningham lined a shot to the shortstop, who bobbled it with an error, allowing the T-Bones to even it up by scoring Mason Davis who had reached base on a walk and advanced on a wild pitch.

Rally time for Kansas City in the bottom of the eighth, as Dexter Kjerstad reached second on a base hit to left center off Canaries’ Miles Nordgren. An RBI double by Adrian Nieto down the left field line brought Kjerstad home and gave the T-Bones a late-game lead of 3-2.

Kansas City never looked back, keeping the lead and chalking up their 26th win of the season with a score of 3-2.

T-Bones’ RHP Lucas Irvine (4-0) worked seven innings, striking out five and allowing two runs on six hits. He was followed in relief by Cody Winiarski (1-0) in the eighth and Carlos Diaz in the ninth. Diaz struck out two of the four Sioux Falls batters he faced. Winiarski was credited with the win.
