Kansas City T-Bones outfielder Nick Torres enjoyed a productive day at the plate, collecting two hits, including a double, RBI and two runs scored. But it was Torres’ sacrifice fly in the bottom of the tenth that scored Dylan Tice and sent the T-Bones home with a hard-fought 6-5 victory over the Cleburne Railroads Sunday at T-Bones Stadium in an independent American Association game.
With the win, Kansas City improved to 21-13, while the Railroads fell to 12-22 on the season.
T-Bones relief pitcher Joe Filemeno (2-1), who entered the tilt in the top of the tenth, picked up the victory.
Kansas City starting hurler Tommy Collier tossed seven solid innings, allowing four runs, three earned, but did not figure in the decision. Railroads starter Shawn Blackwell (2-4) was credited with the defeat.
