AirHogs Force Extra Innings, Bring Down Sox

August 14, 2013 - American Association (AA) - Grand Prairie AirHogs News Release

Amarillo- After being held scoreless for eight innings the Grand Prairie AirHogs (45-37) made the last inning count forcing extra innings and winning it in the 10th 5-2 Tuesday night at Sox Stadium. The AirHogs scored two runs in the top of the ninth to tie it 2-2, then scored three in the 10th to win. Chad Mozingo went 2-for-5 scoring twice in the game. Andres Rodriguez went 2-for-4 and picked up two RBIs. Also getting two RBIs was Palmer Karr Jr. Scoring the other runs was Ryan Pineda, Brandon Pinckney and Rian Kiniry. The win by the AirHogs and a loss by the Laredo Lemurs, gives the AirHogs soul ownership of the South Division lead by a game.

Starting the game but receiving a no decision was Jared Mortensen who went 5.1 innings allowing two runs on five hits and striking out four. Stephen Nikonchik went an inning allowing two hits but no runs and striking out one. David Quinowski faced a batter allowing a hit but no runs. Chase Johnson pitched .1 of an inning allowing no hits and no runs. Boomer Potts picked up the win for the AirHogs pitching 2.1 innings allowing one hit and no runs and struck out one. Patrick Mincey got the save in the game pitching the 10th allowing no hits and no runs. Mincey struck out one of the three players he faced.

The AirHogs seem to find a way to keep coming back against the Sox. Winning the first two of the four-game series puts them in the driver's seat and as they near the end of the season they need to keep the foot on the gas. Game 3 is set for 7:05 P.M. Wednesday night at Sox Stadium.
