RailCats Bats Declawed in Loss in Fargo
FARGO, ND- In game two at Newman Outdoor Field, the Gary SouthShore RailCats (33-56) fell to the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks (54-35) by a score of 7-1 highlighted by a four-hit night from Redhawks’ second baseman Manny Boscan.
Boscan roped two doubles, scored twice, and drove in two as the Redhawks took the series against the RailCats with back-to-back wins.
The RailCats tied things up at one-a-piece in the second after both the Redhawks Manager Chris Coste and starter Matt Tomshaw were thrown out of the game arguing a bang-bang call at first.
The game stayed tight until the fifth when Kevin Krause roped an RBI-single into left to take the lead. In the ensuing inning, John Silviano would blast a lead-off home run, his twenty-fourth of the season, to extend the 3-1 lead.
While Gary held the Hawks within striking distance until the eighth, Fargo-Moorhead would explode for four in the penultimate frame to score four runs on five hits to secure the 7-1 victory.
Jack Alkire suffered the loss for the RailCats with 5.2 innings, nine hits, three runs, three walks, and seven strikeouts while Logan Nissen earned the win with two scoreless innings.
Game three between the Gary SouthShore RailCats and the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks is scheduled for tomorrow, August 26 at 7:02 p.m. at Newman Outdoor Field in Fargo, North Dakota.
