Chris McMurally’s sacrifice fly drove in Victor Diaz with the go-ahead run in the 10th inning, and the Wingnuts beat the AirHogs 4-3 on Tuesday night in Grand Prairie, Texas.

The Wingnuts trailed 3-2 after six innings but pulled even when David Espinosa hit a two-out triple that drove in Jared McDonald.

Abel Nieves and Carlo Testa each had three hits in the game.

Celson Polanco, who joined the team Tuesday, was the Wingnuts’ starting pitcher and went 6 2/3 innings. He began the season with the Amarillo Sox, then joined the Rio Grande Valley WhiteWings, who just won the United League Baseball championship.

Daniel Bennett, Mike Zouzalik and Dan Sattler pitched 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. Sattler picked up his second save since joining the team last week.

The Wingnuts play their final regular-season road game on Wednesday night, then return home for a four-game series against Laredo beginning Friday.
