CLEBURNE, Texas -- Pichi Balet hit a two-run single in the sixth, and the Cleburne Railroaders beat the Wichita Wingnuts 4-2 at The Depot on Thursday night.
Balet’s single extended Cleburne’s lead by three in the sixth, and the Railroaders held on to extend Wichita’s franchise-record nine-game skid. Cleburne gave up 12 hits, but also stranded 10 Wingnuts en route to a second straight win.
Derrick Pyles went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI, and Maikol Gonzalez went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and runs.
On his 23rd birthday, Dylan Mouzakes won for the fourth time this year after giving up a lone run on seven hits with five strikeouts over six innings.
Cleburne reliever Will Mathis, in his Railroaders debut, gave up one run on two hits with a strikeout over 1.2 innings. Carlos Misell threw one-third of an inning, and Winston Abreu worked around a walk for his 14th save.
Nick Van Stratten went 0-4 in his first game since May 21, and Mitch Glasser went 1-for-4 with a run scored.
Game 3 of the four-game set is scheduled for Friday. First pitch is set for 7:06 p.m. and can be heard on the Railroaders Radio Network with pregame beginning 20 minutes prior.
