The Kansas City T-Bones and St. Paul Saints were suspended before play began in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday night in Kansas City, Kan., with the T-Bones trailing 6-5.

The T-Bones and Saints are scheduled to conclude the game at 1:05 p.m. Monday, with the series and season finale to be played shortly thereafter.

Angelo Songco blasted a pair of home runs for St. Paul in front of 6,757 fans at CommunityAmerica Ballpark on Sunday night. He put the Saints on the board in the first with a two-run homer. And then, tied at 5-5 in the ninth, he hit his second home run of the evening, a go-ahead solo shot over the right field wall.

Kansas City scored in each of the first three innings, including a three-run outburst in the third. Two of the runs came in courtesy of a fielding error by Songco. T.J. Mittelstaedt led off with a double, scoring on a Matt Padgett RBI single in the first. They tacked on another run in the second with a leadoff single by Vladimir Frias, who later scored on a sacrifice fly by Darrell Hudson.

Trailing 5-2, the Saints surged back in the fourth with two runs taking advantage of a few Kansas City miscues. A fielding error by Frias, followed by back-to-back walks by starter Casey Barnes, loaded the bases with no outs, before the Saints scored two runs. St. Paul tied the game in the fifth.
