The T-Bones made good use of six hits, beating the Wingnuts 6-2 on Thursday night in Kansas City, Kan.

Wichita pitchers walked six batters and hit another, providing more baserunners for Kansas City.

Kansas City scored three runs in the fourth, taking advantage two walks and hit batter from Anthony Capra to go ahead 3-1.

Wichita made it 3-2 in the top of the seventh when Brent Clevlen’s single drove in Carlo Testa, but the T-Bones respondeed in the bottom of the inning when David Esponsa’s single off Alex Hinshaw drove in two runs to make it 5-2.

The Wingnuts struggled to hit with men on base, stranding 11 runners.

The Wingnuts, who split the four-game series in Kansas City, still have the best record in the American Association. They head to Grand Prairie, Texas, for a three-game weekend series that includes a doubleheader on Sunday.
