The Wingnuts used a three-run sixth inning to launch themselves on the way to a 4-2 win over the T-Bones on Saturday night in Kansas City, Kan., the Wingnuts’ ninth consecutive win.

The nine-game streak ties the second longest in franchise history.

The T-Bones took a 2-0 lead with two outs in the fifth inning, with Joey Gathright scoring from third and Kennard Jones scoring from second on a wild pitch by Junior Guerra and a throwing error by catcher Scott Dalrymple on the same play.

In the sixth, Jake Kahaulelio hit a leadoff single, moved to second on a passed ball and went to third on a single by John Rodriguez. With one out, Brent Clevlen hit a double, scoring Kahaulelio and moving Rodriguez to third. Abel Nieves followed with a two-run single to put Wichita ahead 3-2.

The Wingnuts tacked on a run in the eighth when Rodriguez doubled, then scored on a single by C.J. Ziegler.

Guerra improved to 6-1 with the win and tied a career high with nine strikeouts. He and three relievers combined to limit the T-Bones to two hits. Josh Dew registered a save for the third straight night.

The Wingnuts begin a three-game series in Sioux City, Iowa, on Sunday evening. Anthony Capra is the scheduled starter for Wichita.
