Daily Recaps: May 29, 2019
Sansone Delivers Walk-Off Victory for Saltdogs
The Lincoln Saltdogs earned a great marathon victory on Wednesday, as John Sansone doubled home Curt Smith to give Lincoln a walk-off win over the St. Paul Saints in 15, 3-2. Smith finished 3-5 with a run scored and the Saltdogs pitching staff allowed six total hits. The Saints recorded 17 total strikeouts, including 5 each by Seth Jones and Mike Devine in relief.
Johnson Declaws RailCats
Winnipeg native Ryan Johnson made his debut with the Goldeyes a memorable one, blanking the Gary Southshore RailCats through six innings in a 3-1 Goldeyes victory. Willy Garcia hit a two run homer and Reggie Abercrombie provided all the support that Johnson and three relievers needed to earn the victory.
Tamburino Slows Down Railroaders
The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks got seven outstanding innings from Michael Tamburino in their 2-1 victory over the Cleburne Railroaders. Tamburino allowed 3 hits and a run and Geoff Broussard recorded his fourth save of the season. Correlle Prime delivered the game-winner with his first homer of the year.
Walker Helps Milkmen Snap Skid
After falling in the first game of the double-header, the Milwaukee Milkmen were finally able to snap their seven game losing streak thanks to a 2 RBI night by Adam Walker. After Kansas City took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first, Milwaukee responded with single runs in the second, third, and fourth innings. In the sixth they would add three, thanks to a two-run single by Walker who would later score on a double by Sam Dexter. Myles Smith earned his third save.
In Game 1, the T-Bones scored six runs in the bottom of the first, led by a two-run double by Casey Gillaspie and a two-run single off the bat of Christian Correa. Marco Magliaro tossed five outstanding innings, allowing one run to earn the victory.
Dogs Sweep Pair from Canaries
The Chicago Dogs swept their double-header with the Sioux Falls Canaries on Wednesday. Chicago won the opening contest 7-2, thanks to three RBI from Kelly Dugan and six solid innings from D.J. Snelten. Chicago scored two in the bottom of the second, as Dugan led off with his first homerun of the year. He would add a two-run double in the sixth.
In the second contest, Luke Westphal and Keaton Steele were locked in a great pitchers’ battle as neither team was able to score through regulation. That sent the contest to extra innings, where Victor Roache would win it with a walk-off homer to start the eighth to give the Dogs a 1-0 victory. Josh Goossen-Brown earned the victory with two shutout innings.
The Texas AirHogs and Sioux City Explorers contest was postponed. It will be made up as part of a double-header on Thursday evening.
