The T-Bones’ Zach Walters launched two home runs and drove in four runs as Kansas City came from behind to win 8-4 for the team’s third straight win on Friday night against the Chicago Dogs at Impact Field in suburban Chicago.
It was the first home game for the Chicago Dogs.
The T-Bones took the lead in the first on a Dylan Tice solo home run off Scott Barns. In the top of the fifth Walters launched his first homer of the game off Tyson Perez to make it 2-0. Luis Paula held the Hot Dogs scoreless through four innings but ran into trouble in the bottom of the fifth.
Paula retired the first man he faced but then hit back to back batters in Wilfreedo Rodrigues and Trey Vavra. He then walked Matt Dean to load the bases.
For the third time this week a T-Bones pitcher hit a batter with the bases loaded scoring a run. Paula hit Kyle Gaedele to bring home a run and it was 2-1 Kansas City. Edwin Arroyo then singled to tie the game at two and then Michael Macca drove in two to give Chicago the lead, 4-2.
Kansas City could not crack the Chicago bullpen through until the ninth. Kaohi Downing came in to work the ninth for Chicago and hit Dexter Kjerstad to start the inning. Jordan Eadergeton singled with one out to put runners at the corners. Angel Rosa then lined a home run to left center to give the T-Bones the 5-4 lead.
Johnny Davis reached on a perfectly placed bunt single and Dylan Tice was hit by a pitch to put runners at first and second.
Walters then provided the knockout punch with his second shot of the night to make it 8-4 Kansas City. The T-Bones Carlos Diaz worked a scoreless home half of the ninth as Kansas City won it 8-4.
