Brown and T-Bones Take Exhibition Opener

05/04/2007 11:07 PM - KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The T-Bones got off to an explosive start, scoring 16 times in front of an exhibition record 4,812 fans at CommunityAmerica Ballpark. Kansas City beat the St. Joseph Blacksnakes of the American Association 16-5 in their exhibition opening Friday night.

Third baseman Neb Brown led the way for Kansas City as he went 4-for-6 with a pair of home runs and eight RBI. Brown’s second home run of the night, a grand slam off St. Joe right-hander Jesen Merle, was part of a nine-run fifth inning that turned a one-run Kansas City lead into a decisive 12-2 advantage. Mario Delgado and Casey Clary also homered as the T-Bones pounded out 15 hits.

Brandon Jones was the only returning T-Bone in the starting lineup outside of pitcher Jonathan Krysa. Jones went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI while playing his new position in left field.

Krysa and Anthony Boughner each pitched three innings while Boughner picked up the win. Travis Schlichting tossed two innings in relief and Jon Hunton pitched a scoreless ninth to close out the game for the T-Bones.

Both teams are back at it again tomorrow night in St. Joseph at Phil Welch Stadium. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05.
