Wichita Wingnuts

Joplin beats Wingnuts 6-4

The Wingnuts’ early-season struggles continued Wednesday with a 6-4 loss at Joplin, Mo., the fifth loss in six games to start the season.

Zack Cox hit a three-run homer in the third to put the Wingnuts ahead 3-0. Joplin scored twice in the bottom of the inning, but Wichita tacked on a run in the fifth on a Brent Clevlen homer to make it 4-2.

Anthony Capra limited the Blasters to two runs in five innings, but threw 100 pitches while he walked six and struck out six.

Alex Boshers relieved Capra to start the bottom of the sixth and allowed the first three batters to reach base. Two more hits with two outs completed a four-run inning that put the Blasters on top 6-4.
