The Saltdogs scored four runs in the fourth and beat the Wingnuts 5-2 on Saturday night in Lincoln, Neb.
Wichita starter Ryan Hinson retired the first 10 batters in order, but Curt Smith's home run to left-center started the four-run barrage that included three doubles and a walk.
The Wingnuts made it 4-2 in the fifth when Jorge Cortes hit a two-out double that scored Thomas Fitzgerald and Josh Horn.
The Wingnuts had at least one man on base in every inning but the first, but failed to capitalize.
The teams wrap up their series this afternoon. The Wingnuts return home Monday night.
