KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones defeated the Winnipeg Goldeyes in the final game of a three-game series at T-Bones Stadium Wednesday evening by a score of 3-2.

In the bottom of the first, Winnipeg shortstop Andrew Sohn reached base with a single to right field. An RBI double just inside the left field wall by Renaldo Rodriguez brought Sohn home for the first run of the game, giving Winnipeg an early 1-0 lead.

But the T-Bones came back with force in the bottom of the second, with a stellar inning that saw Kansas City put three runs on the board. Winnipeg left-hander Shane Dawson put the first runner on base with a walk to Kansas City’s Adam Brett Walker.  Nick Torres then hit the ball sharply to the right field hole, advancing Walker to third.

Cal Towey followed by driving the ball down the middle, getting by second baseman Jose Sermo, scoring Walker and moving Torres to third.  Nieto then jumped in with an RBI single to left field, scoring Torres making the score to 2-1 Kansas City. Angel Rosa then hit a ground ball to third that went through the glove of Winnipeg’s Josh Mazzola for an error, bringing home Towey for a 3-1 Kansas City advantage.

In the top of the fourth, Winnipeg’s Reggie Abercrombie reached first on an error by shortstop Angel Rosa and advanced to second on a fielder’s choice by Jose Sermo. A sharp line drive to left by David Bergin sent Abercrombie to third, followed by an RBI ground ball single to left by Grant Heyman that brought home the runner and made the score 3-2 Kansas City.

And that’s where the score would stay for the remaining five innings of the game, as the Kansas City pen locked down the Goldeyes. T-Bones right-hander Lucas Irvine pitched four innings allowing two runs on six hits with a pair of strike outs. Francisco Gracesqui came in for Irvine in the fifth and tossed a scoreless inning. Tommy Collier retired all nine batters he faced, pitching three scoreless innings. Cody Winiarski finished the game in the top of the ninth, earning the save and chalking up the 3-2 Kansas City win.

The win Wednesday gives the T-Bones a 5-2 record in pre-season play.  Kansas City will begin their regular season Friday evening against the Wichita Wingnuts at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium in Wichita. The T-Bones home opener is set for Tuesday, May 22 at 7:05 p.m.
