T-Bones Unable to Finish Three-Game Sweep

06/11/2009 2:02 PM -

Broc Coffman (4-2) threw a two-hit shutout for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (9-15) at CommunityAmerica Ballpark this afternoon to prevent a three-game sweep by the Kansas City T-Bones (12-11), 3-0, in front of 5,827 fans.

Coffman didn’t allow the T-Bones to push a runner past second base in the contest as the T-Bones suffered their first shutout loss of the season.  The left-hander struck out four while walking three in his first career complete game.

Yurendell DeCaster started the second inning with a double off Ryan Knippschild (0-1) and scored Fargo’s first run on a double by Randall Simon.  After walking DeCaster and striking out Simon to kick off the fourth inning, Knippschild surrendered a double to Jeremiah Piepkorn which advanced DeCaster to third.  Kole Zimmerman then drove in the RedHawks second run with an infield single.

DeCaster began the sixth inning with a single and advanced to third on a double by Simon.  Carlo Cota capped off the scoring with an RBI groundout, plating DeCaster to push the score to 3-0.

The RedHawks’ third baseman finished two-for-three and scored all three runs for Fargo.

Knippschild left the game in favor of Weston Curles in the eighth inning.  The left-hander allowed three runs on six hits in the loss.  Curles surrendered two hits over two scoreless innings to finish the game for the T-Bones.

Kansas City starts a seven-game road trip, beginning with a three-game series against the RedHawks tomorrow night.  Dustin Bolton is set to start game one for the T-Bones opposite Garry Bakker for Fargo.  First pitch is set for 7:00.
