It was just too much Seattle and not enough of anything for the Kansas Cannons as they dropped an 8-0 decision Aug. 7 in the loser’s bracket of the NBC World Series. The Cannons finished the season 31-19.
This game could have been much worse, as Seattle had at least two base runners in eight innings and scored in six innings. With 18 hits, they left 13 runners on base.
On the other hand, the Cannons apparently left their sticks at home. They managed just five hits against a trio of pitchers and were set down 1-2-3 four times in the game.
The Cannons best chance to score came in the third trailing 2-0. After Josh Halbert singled with one out, James Threw bounced one to Bobby Joe Tannehill at second. Tannehill couldn’t come up with the ball and everybody was safe. Ty Kildow followed with a single to center, but Jett Hart gunned down Halbert at the plate.
Halbert went 2 for 3 with a walk. He was the only Cannon with more than one hit.
