Two Runs All T-Bones Needed to Down RedHawks 2-1 As Laber Denied the Record

In the rubber match of the three-game series, the F-M RedHawks fell 2-1 to KC T-Bones in front of 4,229 fans on Business Day Special at Newman Outdoor Field on Thursday afternoon. Laber fired 7 strong, however, wasn’t able to break franchise win record.

 

This time, the T-Bones struck first. With one out, Danny Richar drew a 6-pitch walk, and up came Matt Padgett. Seeing four pitches from Jake Laber, the fifth one disappeared over the center field wall, as he lifted a mammoth shot to the deepest part of the ballpark for a 2-0 Kansas City lead.

 

The Fargo-Moorhead’s line-up was able to produce only one base hit throughout the first five innings, and that was C.J. Retherford’s one-base hit to a first baseman. Besides him, only two other players reached first safely, one walk (to Sawyer Carroll) and a fielder’s choice to Frank Salerno.

 

That have changed two innings later. After the 4,229 fans stretched out, bottom of the seventh inning brought a first run for the ‘Hawks. With one out, Retherford found a gap between third baseman and the shortstop for a single. After moving to second on a balk by Kyle DeVore, Retherford reached third on a fielder’s choice 3-1 groundout by Ronnie Bourquin. Next up was Travis Higgs, who waited out his pitch and rope a 2-out single for first Fargo-Moorhead’s run of the ballgame.

 

Visiting T-Bones possessed a threat in the top of the eight, when Christopher Bianchi reached on a Bourquin error. That wrapped up the game for Laber, who was replaced by Joe Harris. He gave up a sinle to Vladimir Frias to put runners on first and second, however, he fielded his position and played a sacrifice bunt by T.J. Mittelstaedt to third to keep the force in play. He would then caught Frias stealing third on a CS 1-5, and got Danny Richar to groundout to second baseman to end the game.

 

On the afternoon, the win went to Kyle DeVore (5-6), while Jake Laber suffered the loss (7-11), while being denied breaking the franchise win record (currently tied with Greg Salvevold at 45). Kris Regas shut the door on the RedHawks for his 21st save of the season.

 

The RedHawks will wrap up the 2014 season with four games at home against Sioux Falls Canaries. Tomorrow’s fireworks game starts at 7:02pm. Purchase your tickets at www.fmredhawks.com or call (701) 235-6161.
