SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - The last time the Sioux Falls Canaries and Houston Apollos met the Birds bombed the visitors 16-0 on a chilly May 26th night at the Birdcage.

Trey Michalczewski went 2-4 with a homerun, two runs scored and four RBI. Mike Hart also belted a dinger and went 3-6 with three runs scored and three RBI. Sioux Falls native Logan Landon went 5-6 with four RBI and two runs scored. Wyatt Ulrich also had four hits as the Canaries racked up 21 in the game.
