Kansas City tacked on two more in the bottom of the seventh inning when center fielder Keanon Simon and right fielder Ray Sadler each batted in a run. El Paso scored in the top of the eighth, but it wouldn’t be enough to top the T-Bones.

Reid Santos earned his sixth win of the season, allowing seven hits, two runs and striking out six in 7.1 innings pitched.
