The Sioux Falls Pheasants overwhelmed the Diablos for the second straight day as they downed El Paso 11-0 at Sioux Falls Stadium on Wednesday night. El Paso drops their third straight. They are now 2-3 on the current road trip. The Pheasants scored early and often and El Paso never got the bats going. They jumped on El Paso starter David Whigham in the second inning pushing in four runs. They would add four more runs on Whigham before he was finally taken out after the sixth inning. Whigham (0-2) ended the night by going six inning and allowing eight runs on 11 hits while striking out four.
