Henry Powers, Ventura Hurls Canaries to Victory in Fargo
FARGO – The Sioux Falls Canaries (15-15) won the three-game series Sunday in Fargo. A strong start by Angel Ventura powered the 7-2 victory at Newman Outdoor Field. The Canaries return to The Birdcage Tuesday.
Ventura (3-3) scattered nine hits without issuing a walk. He struck out five and outduelled former Canary Tyler Herron, who was chased from the game after 1.2 innings. Herron (0-2) suffered the loss after allowing four runs (four earned).
Sioux Falls was led by Jabari Henry, who went deep as part of a two-hit afternoon. His early double drove in two to help the Canaries build a four-run lead after two innings complete. He also drew a walk in the game.
The Canaries bullpen held the Redhawks in check after Ventura exited. Trevor Simms struck out two in a pair of scoreless, hitless innings. Robbie Gordon notched a 1-2-3 ninth to finish the game.
