Lincoln Saltdogs

The Lincoln Saltdogs rallied from down 12-3 to put the tying run on base in the bottom of the ninth inning before succumbing to the Kansas City T-Bones 12-9 at Haymarket Park Monday night.

After the Saltdogs (27-22) scored six runs in the eighth to make it a three-run game, Kansas City (31-17) brought on 2017 American Association Reliever of the Year Cody Winiarski to try to close out the game.  He retired the first two batters he faced but walked T.J. Bennett to keep the game alive.  Then, Randolph Oduber smacked a single and Brandon Jacobs walked to load the bases.  Nathaniel Maggio represented the go-ahead run but struck out to end the game.

Lincoln tries to even the series with Kansas City tonight. First pitch is at 6:45 PM.
