Wagner and Rest of F-M Sluggers Deliver in Bounce-Back Game

Dropping Saturday's game, the RedHawks needed a win on Sunday against Sioux Falls at Newman Outdoor Field. They got that with the team exploding for seven extra-base hits and 13 total in their 12-5 victory.
   
The Canaries struck first in the top of the second inning by putting two on the board. In the third Darwin Perez led off with a double and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Patrick Fiala. The home team's offense came alive a bit later. They had no hits in the first two innings. Then in the bottom of the third Ryan Wagner was the catalyst for a massive day by the 'Hawks' hitters. His double at the beginning of the inning started his great day (3-for-4, 3 runs scored, 2 RBIs, 1 home run) and his team's.
    
Kes Carter brought Wagner in with a sacrifice fly, and was followed by Ryan Pineda's double scoring Mike Gilmartin. Josh Mazzola kept the inning going by crushing a two-run homer to give his team a 4-3 lead. Two batters later, Dustin Geiger blasted another two-run shot to put six on the board in one inning. 
    
B.J. Guinn's two-run dinger of his own cut the lead to 6-5, but the home team also scored in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings as well. Wagner led the fourth off with a great hit again, this one a solo home run. Two more then came in the fifth with Wagner's RBI single, and then scored on Gilmartin's double. The 'Hawks piled three more on in the sixth when Mazzola drove in Pineda, and K.D. Kang's double plated Keury De La Cruz and Mazzola. With a 12-5 lead, Will Solomon settled down and shut out the Birds for the last five innings of the game.
 
Solomon's nine innings earned him his sixth win of the year to two losses. Ray Hanson (0-7) took the loss. Sioux Falls is off Monday and will host Gary on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. The RedHawks continue their homestand and host Kansas City for four games, starting Monday, 7:02 p.m., at Newman Outdoor Field.
