The Wichita Wingnuts remained in the hunt for the second-half crown in the American Association North Division with a 5-1 win over El Paso on Friday at El Paso, Texas.
Wichita is a half-game back of league leader Sioux Falls with eight games remaining in the regular season.
Gabe Medina picked up the victory for the Wingnuts, going eight innings while striking out six and walking one.
Luke Massetti pitched a scoreless ninth.
Former Wichita pitcher Amad Stephens was the losing pitcher for the Diablos, giving up 12 hits over 6 1/3 innings.
Wichita scored two runs each in the first and fifth innings before adding another run in the seventh for a 5-0 lead.
Jorge Delgado led the Wingnuts at the plate, going 3 for 3 with four RBIs, including a two-RBI double in the fifth. Carlos Rivera went 3 for 3 for Wichita with a run.
Also Friday, Wichita completed a deal with Fort Worth for all-star relief pitcher Dustin Cameron. Cameron currently ranks fifth in the league with 16 saves and has a 3.35 ERA, including 36 strikeouts in 40 1/3 innings.
The Wingnuts acquired Cameron in exchange for the reversionary rights to former closer Justin Dowdy, whom the Wingnuts acquired at last year's trade deadline from Shreveport-Bossier. Dowdy was purchased by the Tampa Bay Rays organization earlier this month.
The Wingnuts conclude their series with El Paso in games today and Sunday before heading to Fort Worth for a three-game series beginning Monday.
