LINCOLN, Neb. – The Kansas City T-Bones (54-31) continued the quest to break their playoff drought as they took on the Saltdogs (42-44) in Lincoln, Nebraska Tuesday evening. KC hasn’t made an appearance in the playoffs since 2010. Two runs was enough to lick the Saltdogs, shutting them out 2-0. Mason Davis crossed the plate twice, including a home run, and Tommy Collier struck out nine Lincoln batters in seven innings of work, giving up only one walk.

Collier, a league leader in strikeouts, struck out five-straight when he threw back-to-back Ks in the bottom of the second and fanned all three Lincoln batters he faced in the fourth.

Lincoln’s offense, despite seven hits, was unable to score, leaving seven men on base.

In the top of the third, a solo home run by Mason Davis off Lincoln starting pitcher Joe Bircher put the T-Bones on the board first. The homer was Davis’s seventh since being signed by the T-Bones June 22nd.

In the top of the fifth, Davis doubled to right and Todd Cunningham walked to put runners on base. Davis moved up on a Colin Walsh putout, then a line drive single to shallow right by Noah Perio Jr. brought him home for the T-Bones’ second run.

And that was enough to capture the win, with a final score of 2-0 Kansas City.

The T-Bones have won four straight and look to continue the streak Wednesday when they play a doubleheader against Lincoln beginning at 11:05. Kansas City returns home Thursday to begin a nine-game homestand. Friday night is Sandlot Night with a special guest appearance by Squints.
