Wichita Wingnuts

Newcomers help Wingnuts beat Quebec 3-1

Jerry Gonzalez broke a tie with a two-run double in the seventh inning, leading the Wingnuts to a 3-1 win over the Capitales on Thursday night in Quebec City, Quebec.

The Wingnuts scored the game’s first run in the sixth inning when David Espinosa drove in Jayce Ray. Quebec tied it 1-1 in the bottom of the sixth with a two-out single by Will Walsh to drive in Alexei Bell.

In the seventh, Brent Dean and Ray each reached base with two-out singles, then scored on the double by Gonzalez, an infielder who joined the Wingnuts last week.

Right-hander Eddie Medina picked up his second win since joining the Wingnuts last week. He gave up a two-out single in the third, then didn’t allow another hit until the sixth inning. Bullpen newcomer Iden Nazario got the final out of the seventh and another newcomer, Luis Pardo pitched a scoreless eighth. Daniel Bennett worked a perfect ninth for his second save.
