T-Bones streak reaches four behind Perez

06/01/2017 1:22 AM -

 Gary, IN – The Kansas City T-Bones used seven solid innings from starter Gabe Perez to help beat the Gary SouthShore RailCats 6-2 Wednesday night at U.S. Steel Yard.  The win extended the T-Bones winning streak to four games and pulled the club out of the cellar in the central division of the American Association.


Gabe Perez (2-0) would hold Gary to one run on five hits, while working seven innings notching a quality start. The right-hander would walk three and strike out four to record his second win in a row for Kansas City.


The T-Bones took an early 1-0 lead off Gary ace Charle Rosario. Omar Garcia singled to center to start off the game and raced home on a RBI double from Marcus Lemon. Rosario would retire nine straight T-Bones until the fourth, when Kevin Keyes would hit his third home run of the series to center to give Kansas City a 2-0 lead. 

 

Omar Garcia added to the lead in the fifth with a two-out RBI double to make it a 3-0 T-Bones lead. Garcia stole third base and scored on a wild pitch from Rosario to up the lead to 4-0. In the bottom of the fifth, Gary picked up a sac fly from Chase Harris to cut the lead to 4-1 and the only run allowed by Perez on the night.


The T-Bones would score two more runs in the seventh. Kevin Keyes drove in a run after being hit by a pitch with the bases loaded by Laeten Galbraith. Zach Walters followed with a sac fly RBI to left for 6-1 lead.


Gary SouthShore loaded the bases off Luis Paula in the home half of the eighth but only managed to score one run on a Jamie Del Valle RBI fielder’s choice. With two outs Paula was relieved by Kamakani Usui, who put out the fire for Kansas City. Perez got the win (2-0) and Usui earned the save his first. Rosario was the looser for Gary dropping to (0-2). Kansas City is now 5-1 on the road trip. 


The T-Bones 10-game road trip continues Thursday night with the final game of the four-game series at Gary. Kansas City will turn to right-hander Chris Perry (0-1, 9.39) to take the hill, while Gary will counter with lefty Alex Gunn (1-0, 2.70). The game can be heard on the T-Bones Broadcast Network online at
