McPherson, Kan. – The McPherson Pipeliners were in action Thursday evening, taking on the Kansas Cannons at Bulldog Park.
Jaron Brown would begin the game with a single, and used his speed to get into scoring position, and advanced to third on a throwing error by the catcher while stealing second. He would then score the game’s first run, on a passed ball.
Coach Nathan Robl said, “I really thought outside of a few situational at bats, this was the most complete game they’ve played all summer.” He would mention the great start on the mound from Noah Boone, as he allowed just two runs, which came in the second, as he pitched through 4 innings giving up three hits. The game would be tied at two after the fourth inning, before the Cannons would take a one-run lead in the fifth, and they would add two in the sixth to take a 5-2 lead. The Pipeliners would push two runs in the seventh, but the comeback would fall short as they would fall 5-4.
Coach Robl and the McPherson Pipeliners will get a couple days off, before traveling to El Dorado Sunday evening to take on the Walnuts. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m.
