DeVore pitches T-Bones past Sox

The T-Bones needed some consistency in the starting rotation and they got just that Tuesday night as Kyle DeVore pitched 6 innings of six-hit baseball and helped lead Kansas City to an 8-2 win over Amarillo in an away game.

The Kansas City offense scored six times in the first two innings off Amarillo starter Joseph Rogers (0-1). Five T-Bones drove home runs in the first two frames including Jonny Kaplan, who hit a two-run triple.

That’s all the offense DeVore (2-1), who struck out five and walked none, needed to pick up the victory. T-Bones relievers Jared Messer and Kris Regas shut the door with three scoreless innings out of the pen.

The only offense Amarillo could muster came in the fourth inning, when T-Bones third baseman Nick Schwaner committed a two-out error that allowed Jeff Farnham to capitalize on what would be a two-run single.

The T-Bones got extra runs in the eighth and ninth innings, including Robby Kuzdale’s second home run of the season with two outs in the eighth inning.

The T-Bones (18-19) continue the series with a doubleheader scheduled for Wednesday at 6:05 p.m. Andy Noga will pitch game one, followed by Rick Zagone in game two. Both games will be seven-inning contests in Amarillo, Texas.
