 LINCOLN, Nebraska – The Kansas City T-Bones issued a season high 11 walks and fell behind 7-0 in the first inning on the way to a 14-4 loss to the Lincoln Saltdogs on Thursday night at Haymarket Park.

The T-Bones came into the game trailing Lincoln by three games in the Central Division standings of the American Association, but it was Lincoln that set the tone in the first inning to move back to four games ahead of Kansas City.

T-Bones starter Chris Perry walked the first four batter he faced allowing the first run of the game to score. Tommy Mendonca hit a sac fly to center to score the second run of the inning. Rookie Nathanial Maggio then hit a three-run home run to right and it was 5-0 Lincoln. Perry got Randolph Oduber to fly to center for the second out, but then walked Joe Robbins. Brent Dean then drove Robbins in with a two-run homer and it was 7-0 Lincoln.

Kansas City did get a pair of solo home runs in the top of the second from Kyle Petty and Zane Chavez off Lincoln starter Carlos Pimentel to cut the lead to five. Kanas City would not get any closer as Lincoln would get a double from Robbins and a single from Dean to each drive in a run to increase the lead seven once again in the bottom of the third off Perry. Lincoln scored two more on RBI hits from Bradon Jacobs and Matty Johnson to make it 11-2 after three.

The T-Bones brought in rookie reliever Jackson Lowery, who made his T-Bones to get the final out of the third in relief of Perry. Lowery retired all four batters he faced in his first outing with Kansas City. Lowery, who pitched in college at the University of Arkansas, spent the last two years in the Toronto Blue Jays organization.

Kansas City trailed 14-2 until the top of the eighth, when Kyle Petty launched his second homer of the night, a two run shot to make the score 14-4.

Perry (3-3) was charged with the loss, while Pimentel (7-4) picked up the win. Kansas City (41-27) still leads the wild card race by one game while Lincoln (44-26) has the best record in the American Association and leads the season series 6-4 over Kansas City.
