GARY, Ind. – The Gary SouthShore offense pounded Kansas City with 19 hits and scored in every inning in an 18-3 win over the T-Bones on Sunday afternoon at the U.S. Steel Yard.
Much like Saturday night against T-Bones starter Jared Messer, things got out of control early as the RailCats chased T-Bones starting pitcher Derek Gordon (1-1) in just 1 inning of work. Gordon was charged with six runs as he exited, like Messer the night before, with the bases loaded in the second.
As part of its offensive juggernaut, Gary SouthShore got two home runs and five RBIs from recently acquired Henry Wrigley. The RailCats scored two or more runs in five frames, including a five-run second and a four-run sixth. All five pitchers that Kansas City used gave up at least two runs.
During a game in which every Kansas City starter except Vladimir Frias got at least one hit, Brian Erie was the lone bright spot, as he finished the game 2-for-3 with an infield RBI single.
The T-Bones (41-51) are off Monday before beginning a three-game series at Fargo-Moorhead Tuesday night at 7:02. The game can be heard in the Kansas City area on 1660-AM or worldwide at tbonesbaseball.com.
