KANSAS CITY, Kansas — Kevin McGovern worked a solid seven innings and Drew Ward and Leo Pina both doubled in runs as Fargo-Moorhead defeated Kansas City 2-1 Wednesday in the second game of a three-game set at Legends Field.

McGovern, the RedHawks' new pitching coach this season, certainly got himself ready for his start. He allowed a run — Darnell Sweeney's solo homer in the sixth — on three hits, he walked two and struck out 11.

Reliever Joe Jones worked a scoreless eighth and struck out two and Alex DuBord set the Monarchs down in order in the ninth to get the save.

In the fourth, Manny Boscan singled to lead off and he came around to score on Ward's double. Pina followed with a double that scored Ward.

That was pretty much it offensively for the RedHawks, with Peter Maris picking up the only other hit. KC pitching was nearly as stingy as the RedHawks'. Starter Nick Belzer and relievers Matt Hartman and Jordan Martinson allowed two runs on four hits and combined for 14 strikeouts.
