KOKOMO, Ind. – After a long drought, the Kansas City T-Bones take game two of the four-game series against the Milwaukee Milkmen in Kokomo, IN.

In a game that started off slow and gloomy for the T-Bones, it didn’t stay gloomy as Kansas City started off their scoring with an RBI off the bat of Casey Gillaspie, answering a 2-run homerun by Nolan Early.

After a few innings of battling, Ramsey Romano hit a 2-run homerun, giving the T-Bones their first lead since KC’s last win against the Milkmen at home. Milwaukee answered back in the 8th inning with an RBI single by Jose Rosario, but Closer Eduardo Paredes for KC put the game to bed to secure the end of the 6-game losing streak.

Kansas City is now just one game away from .500, now sporting an 8-9 record, while the Milkmen stay under .500 another day with a 8-11 record. Winning Pitcher tonight is T-Bones Tommy Collier (1-2), and credited with the loss is Milwaukee’s Angel Ventura (1-3). Eduardo Paredes came in for one inning of work and earned himself his first save of the season in a T-Bone uniform. 

Kansas City and Milwaukee will play game three in Kokomo, IN with a series record of 1-1. Game time tomorrow is scheduled for 12:05 pm (cst).
