They say that there are two things that you can count on: death and taxes. Well another thing would be the Wichita Wingnuts defeating the Texas AirHogs which, with Saturday night’s victory, not only gave Wichita a sweep of their three-game series, but a season sweep as the Wingnuts won all 13 games against Texas […]
It was the last game of the arduous three week road trip for the Wichita Wingnuts, as the team was looking for their sixth win in seven games.

Travis Banwart has been the hard luck recipient of several no-decisions this season as the bullpen had squandered leads, however, that was not going to be the case on Saturday evening.

The Wichita Wingnuts had a 11-1 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh, and it looked like the game was over, but the Sioux Falls Canaries battled back, but still fell, 11-8.

The ship appears to be righted in Wichita now, as the Wingnuts won their fifth straight game on Wednesday night, downing the Sioux Falls Canaries, 6-3.

The Wichita Wingnuts continued their trek through Texas, taking on the AirHogs on Friday night. Thanks to eight outstanding innings by Casey Harman, Wichita rolled to a 4-1 victory.

The Wichita Wingnuts shook things up with their pitching staff on Monday, bringing in three new pitchers, including starter Charlie Gillies.
