The Wingnuts lost a second straight game to the Diablos, falling 10-5 on Tuesday night in El Paso.

The Wingnuts’ troubles started early, as starting pitcher Ryan Scoles gave up seven runs in the first inning. Scoles sandwiched two walks around a single to load the bases. After getting an out he gave up three more singles and a walk, a fielder’s choice, then two more hits.

Wichita scored three in the second and added single runs in the fourth and fifth innings to cut the deficit to 7-5, but El Paso tacked on three more runs in the sixth to reclaim control. Brent Clevlen homered for the second straight night.

The Diablos, who have the worst record in the American Association, have won three straight games for just the second time all season. The Wingnuts, with the league’s best record, are on a three-game losing streak for the second time this season.

El Paso beat Wichita 8-7 late Monday night, scoring the winning run on a bases-loaded single with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.
