Shreveport scored two runs in the sixth and added the go-ahead run in the seventh, beating the Wingnuts 3-2 on Wednesday in Shreveport, La.
Wichita starter Ryan Hinson threw five scoreless innings before running into trouble in the sixth when he hit Alex Cowart to start the inning. A double by Mike Provenchar moved Cowart to third, and one out later Bryan Sabatella hit an RBI single to make it 2-1. Palmer Karr Jr tied it with an RBI groundout.
Hinson departed after allowing a single to Uriak Marquez leading off the seventh. Reliever Jared Simon retired the first two batters he faced while Marquez moved to second on a stolen base and third on a groundout. A single by Cowart knocked in Marquez.
The Wingnuts took a 1-0 lead in the third inning on Brent Clevlen's RBI double. Peter Barrow extended his hitting streak to six games with his first professional homer in the fourth inning.
