The Garden City Wind (6-15) fell to the Trinidad Triggers (15-4) 5-1 Tuesday night in the second game of the three-game series at Clint Lightner Stadium.

James Floyd belted a solo home run to right in the fifth, scoring the only run for the Wind.

With two doubles and a walk, Brandon Cooksey had a solid night at the plate in a losing cause.

Trevor Sealey continues to be a thorn in the side to the Wind, leading off with a home run and reaching base three times in five at-bats.

Newly acquired Josh Wright entered the game in a difficult third inning for starter Larry Rodriguez. With runners on second and third, Wright intentionally walked Trigger power-hitter Caleb Bryson. But the Triggers added four runs in the inning, putting them in front 5-0.

Wright grew more comfortable on the mound throughout the game, allowing just one hit and striking out two in the next three innings.

Jacob Gonzalez threw three shutout innings in relief, yielding just one hit. Richie Anderson (2-0) picked up the win for Trinidad giving up only one run in eight innings.

The Wind will try to salvage the final game of the series at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening before the team takes off for a quick two-game series against the Triggers in Trinidad, Colo.
