Power, Patience Give RedHawks 6-3 Win

WICHITA, Kans. (May 15, 2016) – An early two-run homer by K.D. Kang and a pair of two-run innings fueled by walks were enough for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks to sink the Wichita Wingnuts as the visitors claimed a 6-3 victory Sunday evening at Eck Stadium on the campus of Wichita State University.

Fargo-Moorhead grabbed the lead in the second, as Kang took Charlie Leesman deep with a two-run opposite field homer. Leesman rebounded well after the home run however, striking out four in a row and five of six at one point, giving him a solid four innings of work.

The lead stayed at 2-0 until the sixth, when the Wingnuts (1-1-2) broke a 17-inning scoring drought that dated back to Friday’s sixth inning. Zack Cox began the frame with a single, and then came around to score when Dustin Geiger doubled to collect his third RBI of the exhibition slate.

Between Leesman and the relief duo of Jesse Pratt and Richard Ruff, the Wingnuts staff retired 11 in a row at one juncture, but Ruff’s control left him in the eighth, allowing the RedHawks to pad their lead. The righty issued three walks in the inning, with an RBI single by Brian Humphries and a wild pitch allowing the runs to score.

Andrew Taylor then allowed four free passes in the ninth, as the visitors tacked on two more to extend their advantage to 6-1.

The Wingnuts pulled a couple back in the ninth as an attempted diving catch by Kang turned a would-be single into an RBI triple for Tyler Urps, who then came around to score moments later on a wild pitch. The rally ended there however, as Wichita suffered its first exhibition defeat of the year.
