After two frustrating nights at Shaw Park, Sunday afternoon was a different day for Kansas City (31-23) as the T-Bones rolled to a 13-2 win over Winnipeg (31-24) to close out the six-game road trip at 3-3.
The T-Bones got a great starting effort from Chris Perry (2-2) who worked seven solid innings, holding Winnipeg to two runs on two hits with four strike outs and one walk to get the win.
Kansas City got a four-run second inning and never looked back, scoring a run on a wild pitch and a three-run home run blast from Chantz Mack off Goldeye starter Micky O’Brien (6-3) who took the loss.
In the fifth, Kyle Petty, Jordan Edgerton and Joe Jackson each drove in a run on two hits from Petty and Edgerton and a sacrifice fly from Jackson to make it 7-0.
Kevin Keyes hit his second home run of the series in the sixth inning to extend the lead to 9-0.
The T-Bones added two more runs in the eighth and ninth with Winnipeg scoring a run each late in the seventh and eighth.
Marcus Lemon went 3-for-6, Keyes was 4-for-5 and Tyler Horan was 3-for-6 in an 18-hit explosion for Kansas City. Every batter in the T-Bones order had at least one hit in the game.
Jeff Walters worked his third scoreless relief inning since returning from the inactive list on the road trip.
Following an off day Monday, the T-Bones return home Tuesday night, July 18, to open a six-game home stand and the first of a three game series against the Lincoln Saltdogs.
