The Garden City Wind are still searching for their first win in franchise history, after falling 6-5 to the Trinidad, Colo., Triggers on Friday night in Trinidad.
The Wind were again on the wrong end of ninth-inning dramatics when the Triggers took advantage of an error to score the walk-off run to improve to 4-0, all wins coming against the Wind (0-4).
That is the third time the Wind have given up the game-winning runs in the ninth inning. But this time, the Wind had to come from behind with three runs in the ninth to tie the game at 6, the final two runs coming on former Garden City Community College player Shea Bell’s two-run double.
Bell’s double came with the bases loaded and nearly scored the go-ahead run, but Dylin Brooks was thrown out at the plate to end the half-inning, and set up the Triggers’ one-run bottom half for the win.
The Triggers and Wind met again Saturday at 7 p.m. for the second game of a three-game set in Trinidad.
