RedHawks 9, Canaries 8 – Box Score
Offensive fireworks filled the night last night at Newman Outdoor Field between the (16-7) RedHawks and (7-17) Canaries. Sioux Falls heaped on 7 runs by the fifth inning, but RedHawks’ Peter Maris ignited the offensive charge for Fargo-Moorhead with an RBI single. Then Manuel Boscan smacked a 3-run home run to alert the ballpark. Momentum seemed to shift on the RedHawks side when Mike Meyer (SF Manager) was ejected by HP Umpire Neil Turner with 2 outs in the bottom of the seventh inning. Sioux Falls was only able to score one more run in the ninth when Shamoy Christopher hit a solo home run, but it wasn’t enough. Fargo-Moorhead was able to walk off thanks to a Sam Dexter single that scored Leobaldo Pina.
RailCats 5, DockHounds 1 – Box Score
The (10-14) RailCats continue to be a thorn in the (11-13) DockHounds’ side throughout this weekday series. Lake Country took a page from the RailCats’ playbook and scored first thanks to a TJ Bennett RBI-single in the third, but that wouldn’t be enough to derail GarySouthShore. The RailCats came back in the sixth inning with a solo home run from Chris Burgess and an RBI triple from Daniel Lingua. Lingua and Zach Racusin would pile 3 more runs in the eighth with an RBI-ground rule double and 2-run single.

Kansas City 6, Winnipeg 3 – Box Score
The Kansas City Monarchs (16-7) secured another home win last night against the Winnipeg Goldeyes (11-12). The bats started off hot for Kansas City, with DH Matt Adams (2-for-4) cranking a two-run homer at the bottom of the 1st. 3B David Thompson (1-for-4) would hit another Monarch home run in the bottom of the 4th before any response from the Goldeyes. The Goldeye’s only three runs of the night were all one-run homers, with LF Eric Rivera (2-for-4), DH Logan Hill (2-for-4), and 2B Andrew Martinez (1-for-3). The home runs weren’t enough for the Goldeyes, as the Monarchs would bring in another home run themselves from their big-time right fielder Jan Hernandez (1-for-3). The Monarchs wrapped the game, defeating the Goldeyes 6-3.
