FARGO, ND – The Kansas City T-Bones (30-21) have had a great first half to the 2017 season and have not been shut out yet this year. But Fargo-Moorhead (25-27) made one third inning run stand up behind starter Will Solomon to win the final game of the series 1-0 Thursday afternoon, shutting out Kansas City for the first time this season.
T-Bones starter Matt Sergey (2-1) got the loss but struck out nine and had a great afternoon for Kansas City. The RedHawks got an RBI single just past a diving Kevin Keyes at first base from Chris Grayson for their only run in the home half of the third. The hit scored Charlie Valerio who walked to lead off the inning. It was the only walk Sergey surrendered on the day.
The RedHawks starter Solomon (4-1) walked three and scattered three hits over eight innings to hold off Kansas City. The T-Bones did get the lead off and tying run on base in the ninth off of Solomon on a Marcus Lemon walk, but Chris Weathers retired the next three batters to earn the save, his ninth, as Fargo-Moorhead salvaged the final game of the series.
