Wichita Wingnuts

Texas pitchers quiet Wingnuts’ bats

The Wingnuts were held to one run over 14 innings by Texas AirHogs pitching Wednesday in a 5-0, 2-1 American Association doubleheader loss in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Texas’ Tyler Bremer threw six shutout innings in the first game, then James Russell threw a seven-inning complete game in the second game. He outdueled Wingnuts sgtarter Ryan Kussmaul, who allowed two runs in six innings.

Wingnuts starter Alex Boshers gave up five runs in five innings of the opener. He allowed six hits, but only one went for extra bases.

Christian Stringer accounted for Wichita’s only run. Trailing 2-0 in the fourth inning of Game 2, Stringer hit an 0-2 pitch for a solo home run. Brent Clevlen followed with a double but was stranded at third base with one out.

Wichita returns home to Lawrence-Dumont Stadium on Thursday to play a Winnipeg Goldeyes team that spent the last three days playing in L-D against the Salina Stockade. Winnipeg won all three games against Salina, a late replacement team this season that is playing most of its games on the road or at neutral sites.
