Rain cuts T-Bones loss short

Former T-Bones infielder Devin Goodwin homered as rain cut Laredo’s 6-2 win over Kansas City short Sunday at CommunityAmerica Ballpark in Kansas City, Kan.

The T-Bones took the early lead, however, just two batters into the game. Bryan Sabatella led off the Kansas City first with a walk, and came around to score on a double by Jonny Kaplan, who was signed by the club Saturday. Nick Schwaner singled later in the inning, scoring Kaplan and giving Kansas City an early 2-0 lead.

Leading 2-1, Kansas City starting pitcher Mike Nannini (0-2) worked his way around base runners in the third and fourth, but finally surrendered the lead in the fifth. Harrison Kain singled and Nick Van Stratten was hit by a pitch beginning the inning, setting the stage for a Goodwin three-run home run over the left field wall. Dennis Phipps followed two batters later with a homer of his own, extending the Laredo advantage to 5-2.

The Lemurs tacked on another run in the seventh. Van Stratten led off the inning with a single, stole second and advanced to third on a poor throw by catcher Brian Erie. Goodwin then lifted a fly ball to centerfield, allowing Van Stratten to tag and score, pushing the Laredo advantage to 6-2.

Laredo starting pitcher Cesar Carrillo settled down considerably after a rocky first inning, allowing only three hits and no runs over the game’s next five innings. Caleb Graham tossed a scoreless seventh for the Lemurs before the clouds rolled in and the game entered a delay. After 30 minutes, the game was called and ruled final after seven innings of play. Carrillo (3-3) picked up his third win for Laredo.

With the loss, Kansas City falls to 17-19, while Laredo moves to 19-16. The T-Bones embark on a four-game road trip to Amarillo before returning home on June 27 to face off against the Gary SouthShore RailCats at 7:05.
