T-Bones sign two for 2018

Catcher Tucker Pennell and right-handed pitcher Jackson Lowery have been signed by the T-Bones for the 2018 season, according to an announcement.

Both players came to the team late in 2017 and were part of the late season roster push that helped lead the club to its second-best record in franchise history.

Lowery was added to the roster Aug. 4 while the team was on its longest road trip of the season. He retired all four of his batters in his debut at Lincoln that night and went on to have a 2-1 record with a 3.12 ERA in 17.1 relief innings. He made one start for the club, while adding 25 strike outs.

Lowery is from Little Rock, Arkansas, and pitched in college at the University of Arkansas in the SEC.

Lowery signed a free-agent contract with the Toronto Blue Jays after his senior season with the Razorbacks. In 2015, he made three stops in the Blue Jays system and spent last winter with the Canberra Cavalry of the Australian Baseball League. For his career, the former Razorback is 6-4 with a 4.54 ERA in 85.1 innings.

Tucker Pennell was signed just prior to game time on Aug. 25 on the road in Gary, Indiana, and had a key double to spark the offensive attack in his first at bat in an 8-0 win over the RailCats.

He finished the season on a hot streak, including a game-tying home run against St. Paul on Sept. 4 in Kansas City, Kansas. He finished 5-for-13 in the last four game series with the Saints with three RBIs and a double. In 10 games, Pennell went 11-for-28 with three RBIs and a .393 average.

Pennell spent 18 games over two seasons with the San Diego Padres organization after signing as a non-drafted free agent in 2016. A native of Georgetown, Texas, he was a teammate of Jackson Lowery at the University of Arkansas.

Full and half-season ticket packages for 2018, as well as flex plans, are on sale online at www.tbonesbaseball.com or by calling 913-328-5618 or visiting in person the Providence Medical Center Box Office. Group ticket sales for renewing accounts are also on sale, while group ticket sales will open to the public on Dec. 12.
