KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The Kansas City T-Bones evened up the Southern Division playoff series at 1-1 Wednesday evening by defeating the Sioux City Explorers 4-2.

It was scoreless going into the bottom of the second, when the T-Bones fired up the bats to grab three runs on five hits. Keith Curcio led off by smashing a home run ball over the right-field fence. KC took the lead 1-0. Lago walked and advanced to second on a single by Danny Hayes. Both runners moved up on an Anthony Phillips putout, then Ryan Brett hit a two-run RBI single to left to score Alay Lago and Danny Hayes.

The T-Bones were up 3-0 going into the top of the third, but Sioux City wouldn’t allow that for long. Dean Green smacked an RBI single to right to score Michael Lang and make it 3-1.

Todd Cunningham walked, moved up on a walk to Noah Perio Jr., then Sioux City intentionally walked Keith Curcio to load the bases and bring up Alay Lago, who hit into a fielder’s choice that scored Cunningham and made it 4-1 Kansas City.

In the fourth, Sioux City’s Dylan Kelly singled, then the second baseman bobbled a hit ball by Dexture McCall and Kelly went on to score on a single to first by Michael Lang to cut into KC’s lead, making it 4-2.

Kansas City’s bullpen was able to hold the Explorers scoreless for the rest of the game, winning it 4-2.
