by Luke Schrock

After a long drought, the Kansas City T-Bones took game two of the four-game series against the Milwaukee Milkmen in Kokomo, Indiana, by a 4-3 final.

The game started slow and gloomy for the T-Bones, but it didn’t stay gloomy. The T-Bones started their scoring with an RBI off the bat of Casey Gillaspie, answering a 2-run home run by Nolan Early.

After a few innings of battling, Ramsey Romano hit a 2-run home run, giving the T-Bones their first lead since KC’s last win against the Milkmen at home.

Milwaukee answered in the 8th inning with an RBI single by Jose Rosario, but KC’s closer Eduardo Paredes put the game to bed to secure the end of the 6-game losing streak.

Kansas City is now just one game away from .500, sporting an 8-9 record, while the Milkmen stay under .500 another day with a 8-11 record.

The winning pitcher was T-Bones Tommy Collier (1-2), and credited with the loss was Milwaukee’s Angel Ventura (1-3). Eduardo Paredes came in for one inning of work and earned himself his first save of the season in a T-Bones uniform.
