What a way to start the season. After 13 innings and a 7-7 score, the Kansas City T-Bones and Lincoln Saltdogs season opener Thursday night at CommunityAmerica Ballpark was suspended until Friday night.
After giving up five runs in the sixth and seventh innings, the T-Bones answered with three runs in the eighth. And then, trailing 7-5, Danny Richar singled home David Espinosa before scoring on a fielder’s choice by Nick Giarraputo.
The T-Bones threatened in the bottom of the 13th after Robby Kuzdale and Espinosa singled, and then advanced to second and third, respectively, on a one-out wild pitch by Conor Spink, the seventh Lincoln pitcher of the game. However, Danny Richar struck out and Bryan Sabatella grounded out, stranding Kuzdale and Espinosa.
The game will resume at 6 on Friday night. Shortly after the conclusion, the T-Bones will face off with Lincoln at 7:05 in the second game of the four-game series. Tickets are available by calling the Providence Medical Center Box Office at CommunityAmerica Ballpark at 913-328-5618.
