Sioux Falls, SD - The skies cooperated early and the Sioux Falls Canaries and Kansas City T-Bones were able to take the field at 1:05 to complete their suspended game from last night. Play resumed with the score tied at 1 in the top of the 4th.  Ty Forney replaced Shelby Ford at second base for the Canaries after Ford aggravated his groin hustling out a grounder last night.

Matt Wickswat was the new pitcher for the Canaries, who came in to relieve Ben Moore. Moore was impressive last night, allowing one run in three innings while striking out five. Wickswat fulfilled his job of eating innings and keeping runs off the board and he was able to finish the game, throwing six innings and allowing just two runs.  Vladamir Frias scored on Darrell Hudson's RBI bunt single in the 4th to put Kansas City up 2-1.  The Canaries were able to tie the game in the 5th when Chris Duffy and Steve Tinoco hit back-to-back doubles to start the 5th.  The game would be decided in the 8th when Bryan Sabatella singled, stole second and eventually scored on a ground up the middle by Danny Richar.

The originally scheduled 4:05 PM game today was washed away by rain.  The Canaries will return to action Monday night at 7:05 PM as they open a four-game series against their division rivals, the Winnipeg Goldeyes.  Monday night will be Zoo Night at The Birdcage and kids 12 and under get one free ticket with the purchase of an adult ticket in the upper or lower reserved sections.  Tickets are available at the box office, by calling 605-336-6060 or via TicketMaster.
