The Wingnuts scored four runs in the top of the first and went on to a 6-1 win over the T-Bones on Wednesday afternoon in Kansas City, Kan.

All four first-inning runs scored with two outs. J.T. Wise hit a double to score Carlo Testa, newcomer Chris McClendon singled to bring home Jake Kahaulelio and Wise, and Colt Loehrs knocked in McClendon.

Wichita added two runs in the fourth, an inning that began with singles by David Amberson and Taylor Oldham.

Wichita starter Jon Link held Kansas City to one run over six innings, and relievers Alex Hinshaw, Patrick Mincey and Matt Nevarez retired the final nine batters in order to preserve the win.

McClendon joined the Wingnuts as the completion of an offseason trade that sent pitcher Andew Aizenstadt to the Gateway Grizzlies of the Frontier League. He played five season in the Frontier League. To make room on the roster for McClendon, the Wingnuts released Mike Hernandez.
