'Hogs hang 12 on Diablos
El Paso, TX — After a dominate win Friday night the Diablos get stomped at Cohen Stadium, despite late game runs. The Grand Prairie AirHogs made up for their 8-2 loss, with a 12-4 dismantling of the Diablos to tie the series at 1-1.
The AirHogs hit first and hit hard, with a three run home run in the first, and three more runs in the next two innings to take a commanding 6-1 lead. The Lone run of the first seven innings came from a Maikol Gonzalez ground rule RBI.
