Banwart, Bullpen Shut out Railroaders

May 28, 2018 - American Association (AA) - Wichita Wingnuts News Release

WICHITA, Kan. - Travis Banwart fired seven brilliant innings and Tony Thomas provided the scoring as the Wichita Wingnuts shut out the Cleburne Railroaders 1-0 on Monday night at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.

Banwart (2-1) struck out seven while surrendering just four hits, walking only one as he tied Jordan Cooper for the longest outing from a Wingnuts starter this year. The right-hander ended his outing by retiring 11 of the last 12 Cleburne hitters that he faced.

Thomas gave the Wingnuts (6-4) the only run of the game in the first, following singles from Logan Watkins and Logan Trowbridge by shooting a single of his own into right. Watkins scored from second, giving Wichita all the support they would need.

Starter Jared Mortensen (0-1) was excellent for the Railroaders, matching Banwart pitch for pitch on his way to eight innings of one-run ball. After the three-hit first inning, the Wingnuts mustered only one base knock over the final seven innings.

Felix Carvallo danced around trouble in the eighth, allowing a pair of two-out baserunners before inducing a popup from Patrick Palmeiro. James Campbell then nailed down the save with a scoreless ninth, striking out a pair for his first career Wingnuts save.

Former Major League All-Star Rafael Palmeiro finished 1-4 with a second inning single for the Railroaders (5-5).

The Wingnuts continue their series with Cleburne Tuesday night at 7:05 PM. Casey Harman (1-0, 0.00) will get the start for Wichita, while the Railroaders will counter with righty Patrick Mincey (0-0, 7.14). The game will be broadcast on 1410 AM/93.9 FM KGSO, TuneIn and
