His single in the second inning scored the first run and his three run homerun in the third put Winnipeg ahead 7-0. The homerun was Keiths first of the year.
The T-Bones offense did not get a runner on base until the fourth inning. Rick Prieto, Taber Maier, and Ray Brown all singled to begin that inning. Browns single drove Prieto home with the T-Bones first run, cutting the lead to 10-1.
Chad Ehrnsbergers lead-off double in the seventh inning put him ahead of teammate Rick Prieto for the league lead in extra-base hits. Ehrnsberger sits at the top with 12 extra-base hits and has Prieto on his heels at 11. Ehrnsberger would later score on Chris LePines single to make the score 11-2.
Sean Murphy continued his hot streak at the plate by going two for four. One of those hits capped Kansas Citys scoring for the evening as Murphy sent a line drive into the right field corner for a two-RBI double. Over his last three games Murphy is batting .500 (seven for fourteen) with four RBI.
