Chris Colabello launched a blast in the first inning – a home run scoring two – as the T-Bones again looked like the American Association champions they are in Tuesday night’s game at JustBats Field at T-Bones Stadium, Kansas City, Kansas.
The T-Bones won their seventh straight game and displayed their comeback ability in the seventh inning Tuesday night against the Cleburne Railroaders.
At the top of the third inning, the Railroaders got two runs, and added two more at the top of the fourth, for a Cleburne lead of 4-2.
In the bottom of the seventh inning, Shawn O’Malley, Tyler Marincov and Roy Morales scored. Morales hit a single, Marincov hit a double, while O’Malley was hit by a pitch to get on base. Ramsey Romano’s double allowed O’Malley and Marincov to score, and the T-Bones led, 5-4.
In the eighth inning, the T-Bones added four more runs to make the score 9-4. Colabello singled and Casey Gillaspie hit a home run to start the rally. O’Malley singled and stole a base, then scored on a Marincov single. Also getting hits in the inning were Romano, Dylan Tice and Daniel Nava.
Cleburne came back in the ninth, but it was not enough, and the T-Bones won 9-7.
The winning pitcher was Christian Binford, while D.J. Sharabi took the loss. Carlos Diaz got the save. Attendance was listed as 1,899.
