The win puts Grand Prairie one game back from the lead in the South Division of the American Association. Brandon Pinckney was 1-for-6 in the ball game but his one hit was a big one.

Both Andres Rodriguez and Ryan Pineda went 2-for-4. Rodriguez also picked up an RBI. Chad Mozingo went 1-for-3 scoring once and driving in a run.

Starting the game for the AirHogs was Gabriel Garcia who allowed two runs on seven hits through 5.1 innings of work. Garcia struck out two of the Sox batters he faced. After that his relief team kept the Amarillo Sox scoreless. New pitcher Stephen Nikonchik went 1.2 innings, David Quinowski and Patrick Mincey went one inning each, and Jakob Cunnigham had a big two innings. Receiving the win was Boomer Potts (2-0) who pitched the top of the 12th and struck out two of the three batters he faced.
