Reynolds, Ely Help Canaries Rally Past Texas at Birdcage

SIOUX FALLS, SD… The Texas AirHogs lost the first two games of the series by a combined score of 23-3. But you sure couldn’t tell Wednesday night when they scored 5 times in the 3rd inning and looked well on their way to an easy win over the Canaries. But the Birds scored 5 of their own in the 5th inning, capped by Burt Reynolds’ 2-run blast. After the visitors took the lead again, the Birds rallied for 3 more in the bottom of the 8th as Andrew Ely’s 3rd hit of the game, a 2-run double put Sioux Falls ahead 9-8. That turned out to be the game-winner as the Birds improved to 26-24. Alay Lago had 2 more hits and improved his batting average to .377. The Canaries moved to within 1 game of Cleburne in the Southern Division and moved past KC in to 2nd place. They go for the 4-game sweep Thursday night at SF Stadium.
