  • Wingnuts may be forced to tinker with 2014 roster

    The same core group of baseball players got the Wingnuts to consecutive American Association championship series without being able to win one.

    After 11 scoreless innings, the first run of the Wingnuts’ playoff opener Wednesday night scored … on an RBI-walk.

  • Grand Prairie beats Wingnuts 8-3
