U.S. Steel Yard House of Horrors in 13-12 Loss

08/03/2005 11:11 PM - The Kansas City T-Bones, led by Chad Sosebee and Mike Brown who each homered twice in the game, outhomered the Gary SouthShore RailCats, 7-1. But the RailCats fought back from a number of deficits in the game and beat the T-Bones on Jose Yepez' walk-off tenth-inning solo home run, 13-12.

Kansas City trailed Gary after a two-run RailCat second inning against T-Bone starter Jonathan Krysa. But the T-Bones stormed back with five in the third inning, including solo homers from Brown and Sosebee and a three-run shot from David Segui.

The T-Bones would score two more in the fourth, on Sosebee's second home run of the game and Sean Flynn's first of the season. Sosebee would wind up 4-for-5 on his 28th birthday and was just a triple short of the cycle while driving in four runs on the day.

Gary, which trailed 8-2 after five innings, scored four times in the sixth against Kansas City starter Jonathan Krysa, chasing him to the showers on David Weiner's two-run single to center, which made the game 8-6.

Kansas City added an insurance run in the top of the seventh on a Sosebee double that scored Flynn, but reliever Ron Arostegui allowed three of the first four runners of the latter half of the inning to reach base before giving way to Joe Goodmann. Goodmann struck out Jason Colson, but allowed a two-run single to Steve Haake to tie the game at nine.

The T-Bones scored thrice in the top of the ninth inning, with a Mike Brown homer followed by a two-run shot by Brandon Jones, and it appeared they had finally driven a stake through the heart of the RailCats. But reliever Nate Ruhl walked two in the bottom of the inning, followed by a two-run double by Scott Samuels, who would score on a sacrifice fly by Haake.

Kansas City was scoreless in the top of the tenth inning against Gary reliever Travis Kerber (W, 5-1) before Yepez' solo shot against reliever Tucker Cardoza (L, 0-1).
