KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones won 5-4 to take the series over the Salina Stockade on Saturday night at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.

The Stockade struck first in the third matchup between Salina and Kansas City. First baseman, Kewby Meyer, scored catcher, Cody Coffman, in the second inning to give the Stockade the early lead. An error by third baseman, Jordan Edgerton, allowed Salina to extend their lead to 2-0, before the T-Bones responded scoring three runs in the bottom of the second.

Catcher, Zane Chavez singled to bring in Edgerton and narrow their lead to 2-1. Right-handed pitcher, Jordan Cummings (1-4, 7.52) walked right fielder, Chantz Mack, advancing all runners around the diamond to even the score at 2-2. Kansas City took over the lead with second baseman, Marcus Lemon’s putout to bring in the final run of the inning.

Coffman took back the Stockade’s lead in the fifth inning with an RBI double, putting Salina up 4-3.

The T-Bones went scoreless in the sixth, but a solo home run from Mack in the seventh would tie up the game at four going into the final two innings.

Even after Salina pitcher, Tyler Herr (1-1, 3.00) walked three players, the T-Bones couldn't produce a base hit to win the game in nine innings. The game remained tied at four going into the tenth.

A double to deep right field from Mack and incredible speed from shortstop, Jerome Pena, gave the T-Bones the 5-4 walk-off victory.

Right-handed pitcher, Cody Winiarski (4-1, 1.96), picked up the win for the T-Bones with left-handed pitcher, Connor Bach (1-6, 7.25), taking the loss.
