Landon Game-Winner Saves Day for Canaries, 12-11
It looked like the Sioux Falls Canaries were going to pull within a half-game of the lead in the American Association standings, holding a 9-1 lead heading into the ninth inning on Friday night. However, the Chicago Dogs battled back with 10 runs to take the lead before Logan Landon tied the score with a two out hit in the bottom half of the frame. Landon then continued his heroics, delivering a walk-off single in the bottom of the 11th to give the Canaries a 12-11 victory.
Landon finished with four hits and two RBI and Grant Kay drove in four for Sioux Falls. Tyler Ladendorf hit a grand slam and Victor Roache homered for the third time in two nights for the Dogs.
Kussmaul, Homers Lead Milkmen, 4-2
Ryan Kussmaul threw 5.2 solid innings in earning his second win of the season as the Milwaukee Milkmen doubled up the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks, 4-2. Adam Walker hit his eighth homer of the season, tied for most in the American Association, and Mason Davis homered as well. Correlle Prime had three hits for the RedHawks.
Bus trouble forced the postponement of the Winnipeg Goldeyes game with the St. Paul Saints. The contest will be made up as a double-header on Saturday.
The Canaries Clint Coulter extended his hitting streak to 15 consecutive games on Friday night. That is the longest in the league this year. Teammate Alay Lago reached base for the 21st consecutive game. That is also a high for this year…The Chicago Dogs scored 10 runs in the ninth inning Friday night. That is the most runs scored in an inning this year.
