Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Saturday night the RedHawks looked like the best team in the American Association, crushing Kansas City 17-0. Today, they only mustered 4 hits. That's one less hit than they had home runs last night.
It was a different day at Newman Outdoor, Kansas City juggled its lineup, sitting two regular starters and it worked.
Up 3-0 in the 7th, the T-Bones add another Kody Hightower hits it past a drawn in infield. Steve Yoo scores for a 4-0 lead.
Reliever Nathan Kilcrease pitched the last 2 and 2/3 innings for the RedHawks and gave up 0 runs on 2 hits, lowering his ERA to 2.57. But Kansas City starter Lucas Irvine had the best outing of his season, going the distance for the complete-game four hit shutout.
The Hawks should have saved some of those 17 runs from last night. They drop the finale, 4-0.
Buddy Sosnoskie, RedHawks Outfielder: “We had struggles getting into a rhythm off of their guy. He was spotting up pretty well. He was mixing in his fastball, a little cut fastball, and a slider. He also had a change up and he was able to keep it down in the zone. He made it so a lot of the times we were getting ourselves out chasing down and a lot of the times just beating the ball into the ground.”
Doug Simunic, RedHawks Manager: “This next road trip here, this four game road trip to Lincoln will be a big tester for us, so we're going to have to be up on our game when we go there. We don't want to extend this one game losing streak. We want to try and cut it down quick.”
