T-Bones Ride Carroll and Pen to 6-2 Win

07/02/2017 2:00 AM -

 SIOUX CITY, IA. –Scott Carroll tossed his fourth straight quality start, and the T-Bones bull pen worked their third straight scoreless night as Kansas City took game two of the three game series, 6-2, over the Sioux City Explorers.

Carroll (4-2) retired nine straight at one point and notched 10 strike outs on the night, holding the X’s to two runs on four hits. The team would strike out 15 Sioux City batters--the highest nine inning total and eclipsing the 13 the club sent down on June 3rd at Sioux Falls.

At the plate Leo Rojas drove in two runs for Kansas City. In the top of the second with two outs, Patrick Brady hit the first Alex White (0-2) pitch he saw to right to drive in the first run of the game. Rojas then followed with another RBI single, and the lead was 2-0.

Marcus Lemon hit a solo home run off White in the top of the third to make it 3-0, part of a three-hit night for Lemon.  Rojas was back at it again with a solo blast to left field to give the T-Bones a 4-0 lead in the fourth.

The T-Bones picked up a pair of unearned runs in the fifth behind a pair of errors from Sioux City to add to the lead and make the score 6-0 Kansas City. 

The X’s would pick up two runs in the bottom of the sixth on RBI singles from Levon Washington and Brian Fortier, but Carrol responded by retiring the last five batters before he left with a 6-2 lead after seven.

Myles Smith worked a scoreless eighth inning, and Grant Sides allowed a lead-off single in the ninth then struck out the next three batters to win the game 6-2.

The win helped the T-Bones jump past Sioux City for second place in the American Association Central Division and moved Kansans City a half game behind first place Lincoln, who lost Saturday night. The T-Bones also secured their ninth series win and are now 4-1 on the six-game road trip and 12-6 away from CommunityAmerica Ballpark. 

The two teams play the final game of the three-game series Sunday night at Lewis and Clark Park in Iowa. Righty Matt Sergey (1-0, 4.21) will take the ball for Kansas City, while LHP Hobbs Johnson (3-1, 2.58) will get the start for Sioux City. Game time is 6:05pm and the game can be heard online at tbonesbaseball.com or on the T-Bones MixLR channel.

The T-Bones return home Monday, July 3rd to face Sioux Falls in the first game of a three-game series and a seven-game homestand.
