Luke Appert's line drive skimmed just inside the right field line, rolling into the corner, deep enough to drive home Luis Perez and Chris Tritle.

The two 13th innings runs were just enough to send the Kane County Cougars past the Burlington Bees 5-3 in the Class A Midwest League game Friday at Community Field.

The ball snuck by because of consecutive walks that placed Peres and Tritle on first and second base. That second walked pulled first baseman Kila Kaaihue off the line.

"When you have just a man on first base, we had the line gaurded there and the ball dosen't get by. But now with a guy on second, we play off the line a little but and it get by," said Burlington manager Jim Gabella, "That's baseball."

"That was a fun ball game. Wish we would have won, but still it was fun,"

The Cougars knotted the game in the ninth inning, with one out. Dustin Majewski's single up the middle sent home Brian Snyder, who had doubled. That run came a half an inning after Mitch Maier broke a 2-2 tie with a leadoff home run, his first as a Burlington Bee.

The Bees stayed in the game despite three fielding errors and several baserunning errors. In the eighth, Brian McFall followed, Maier's home run with a double. Kaaihue bunted McFall to third with one out. But on the first pitch to Adam Keim, McFall got caught between third base and home and then Keim lined out to short to end the threat.

Two innings later, Chris Lubanski was hit by a pitch but was caught between first and second. The mistake was costly as Angel Sanchez followed with a single. Any scoring threat then ended when Maier lined out to first and Sanchez was caught off the base.

In the second inning Lubanski doubled to centerfield but was thrown out trying to stretch the hit into a triple.

"As many mistakes as we made, we're going to be a better team because of them," Gabella said, "Our baserunning was not real good today. But that's how young players learn. That's something we tell them, Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Just learn from it, It's not a problem if they make them today. The problem comes if we continue to make those. In another three weeks if we continue to make them, then I'll be concerned."

Even with the miscues, the Bees led, 1-0, 2-0 before yeilding a two run home run in the sixth. They took the lead again before Kane County knotted the game again.

"They have a good team and every inning but two innings we were right with them. Two innings (Thursday), they scored some runs but we've been with them ever since," Gabella said. "That tells a lot about our guys. We'll be better because of this game."

Burlington scored it's first two runs on wild pitches by Cougars starter Brad Knox, who had three wild pitches on the night.

Six Kane County pitcher combined for 13 strikeouts while Bees' Greg Atencio, John Gragg, Alexis Encarnacion and Dusty Dossett tallied nine strikeouts. All 10 pitchers combined for just 10 walks.
