KANSAS CITY, Kan. – After back to back nights of inclement weather, the sun finally came out at CommunityAmerica Ballpark Wednesday night. Unfortunately for the Kansas City T-Bones, their losing streak continued in a hard luck 13 inning loss to the Gary SouthShore RailCats by a final score of 3-2.

Calvin Drummond tossed the first quality start this year for the T-Bones and threw three straight scoreless innings to start the ballgame. After walking five during his opening night start, Drummond bounced back by not issuing any free passes on the way to a six strikeout performance earning a no decision.    

Gary took the lead in the fourth inning on back-to-back RBI singles from Alex Crosby and Wilfredo Gimenez to make it 2-0. The game stayed that way until the home half of the seventh when the T-Bones would tie it up.                                       

Chase McDonald would hit his first homerun of the year, a solo shot to right, off of reliever Laetten Galbraith to cut Gary’s lead to 2-1. Daniel Rockett would muscle a double before Galbraith would walk both Christian Correa and Eddie Newton, to load the bases. It was back to the top of the line-up with Omar Garcia trying to capitalize on the inning, and he did just that — with a single RBI scoring McDonald and tying up the game 2-2.

Kansas City had its best chance to win the game in the bottom of the eighth inning, when they managed to load the bases off of Galbraith with one out. Galbraith buckled down and was able to force Christian Correa to hit into a first to home double play to end the threat for the T-Bones.

The two teams remained scoreless until the 13th inning when Wilfredo Gimenez hit a single and Kris Goodman came in as a pinch runner. Goodman stole second, Ryan Fitzgerald hit a fly to center field, and rookie Andy De Jesus hit a double to center to bring Goodman home, ultimately getting the winning hit for Gary, 3-2.

Drasen Johnson (1-0) earned the win for Gary SouthShore while Aaron Brooks (0-2) was charged with the loss for Kansas City. Gary’s Ryan Fritze earned his first save of the season.

T-Bones manager Joe Calfapietra realized the opportunities that his team had against Gary during the game but would never capitalize on.

“It’s very disappointing right now, but we have to stay positive and keep on going. There’s a lot of season left,” he said.

The T-Bones will travel for the first time this year to start a ten-game road trip, opening a three-game series against the St. Paul Saints, Friday through Sunday. The Saints have a record of 5-2.
