Rain suspends T-Bones again


KANSAS CITY, KAN. —  Just when it appeared Kansas City had finally gotten away from the rain ... think again!

After forcing the start of the game to be moved back 30 minutes, the rain finally caused Saturday night’s game between the T-Bones and Canaries to be suspended in the top of the fourth inning in a 1-1 tie.

The T-Bones got the scoring started off in the second inning when Brian Erie knocked in Danny Richar with a single off Sioux Falls starting pitcher Ben Moore.

The Canaries countered with a two-out RBI double from Chris Duffy that drove in Chris Valencia from first base off Kansas City right hander Andy Noga.

A heavy downpour, combined with rain earlier in the day, halted play at the end of the third inning. The T-Bones fought rain earlier in the roadtrip when their first two games at Gary SouthShore were affected by rain, which forced a doubleheader on Wednesday.

Kansas City and Sioux Falls will resume Saturday’s game on Sunday at 1 p.m., with the series finale, now a seven-inning game, to be played immediately afterwards.

The T-Bones return home for a seven-game homestand beginning Monday at CommunityAmerica Ballpark. All of the action can be heard on 1660-AM in Kansas City or worldwide at
