07/12/2005 2:08 PM - After a season-long nine-game road trip, the Kansas City T-Bones (27-19) return to CommunityAmerica to open a six-game homestand starting tonight. The T-Bones will start off with a three-game set against the Northern Divisions first half champs Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (28-20) this evening at 7:30 before hosing the Schaumburg Flyers for a three-game series beginning Friday.
Tonights match-up is the first regular season meeting between the T-Bones and RedHawks. Fargo-Moorhead enters the series as losers of 7 of their last 10 ballgames, but did capture the Northern Division first-half title ensuring a playoff spot in September. The RedHawks are led offensively by Clyde Williams who leads the Northern League with 15 homers and has a team-leading 42 RBI.
The T-Bones return to action tonight after a 5-4 road trip. Greg Bicknell (9-1) picked up two victories on the venture and newcomer Rafael Rodriguez batted .400 in his first two games since joining the team. The T-Bones finished the first-half in second place, one-half game behind the division champion St. Paul Saints.
