Lincoln Saltdogs

Two Lincoln Saltdogs errors led to two unearned runs for the Kansas City T-Bones as KC claimed the series win with a 2-1 victory at Haymarket Park Tuesday night.

Eric Wooten picked up the loss for the Saltdogs (27-23) despite going seven innings and giving up just six hits.  The southpaw induced three double plays and struck out three batters.  Tommy Collier rivaled Wooten, going seven innings and allowing one run on six hits.  He struck out eight batters compared to just one walk.

The Saltdogs look to salvage a game from the series tonight. First pitch is at 6:45 PM.
