Birds Fall to Kane County in Clash of Division Leaders

Sioux Falls, SD – The Sioux Falls Canaries’ winning streak was snapped at four games Saturday night as Kane County topped the Birds 13-6 at the Bird Cage.

The Cougars built a 5-0 lead before Jordan Barth belted a solo homerun with two outs in the second inning. Kane County added three more runs in the top of the third but Trevor Achenbach responded with a two-run homerun in the fourth and Spencer Sarringar added an RBI sacrifice fly in the fifth.

The Cougars scored three times in the sixth inning to rebuild a seven-run lead before the Birds struck back with two runs in the seventh via a Sarringar RBI triple and a wild pitch. But the Cougars added two more runs in the top of the ninth to pull away and even the three-game series. 

Hunter Clanin led the way offensively with three hits as the Canaries dip to 26-16 overall. The two teams will wrap up their interdivisional series Sunday at 1:05pm.
