The Springfield Cardinals will not have a post season. They were eliminated from Texas League playoff contention on Tuesday with a 7-2 loss at the hands of the Wichita Wranglers. The Cardinals are five games behind first-place Tulsa with five games to go.

Travis Hanson’s throwing error in the third inning led to three Wichita runs and allowed the Wranglers to stretch a 1-0 lead into a 4-0 advantage.

Wichita starter Brian Bass earned his 12th win of the season with an 8 1/3 inning performance.
