Wichita took an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but a three-run fifth frame led El Paso to a 3-2 win against the Wingnuts at Cohen Stadium. Juan Richardson and Jorge Delgado each had an RBI in the first inning for Wichita, and neither team scored in the following three frames. In the bottom of the fifth, however, Maikol Gonzalez and Albenis Machado combined for three RBI to give El Paso the lead. The Diablos held onto it for the remainder of the game, and El Paso cruised to victory. Two different Diablos recorded multiple hits in the game, and center fielder Kory Drew led with two hits and one run in three at-bats. Luis Montano, now 2-5 on the season, earned the win by allowing six hits, two runs and striking out two in six innings pitched.
