TROIS-RIVIERES, CANADA – The Kansas City T-Bones, scored twice in the ninth inning, but fell, 6-2 to the Aigles Saturday evening.
The Aigles used 12 hits, and a big four-run sixth inning, to take the third game of the series, despite Kansas City's late surge.
Down 6-0, the T-Bones got four hits in the ninth inning, including doubles from Nate Tenbrink and Adam Bailey to pull within four runs, but couldn't get the tying runner aboard.
Kansas City starting pitcher Kyle DeVore (0-2), was charged with five earned runs over five-plus innings, and took his second loss on the road-trip. DeVore only allowed two runs in his first four innings, but the Aigles plated four in the sixth to take a healthy 6-0 lead.
