Oklahoma City (15-17)
Tommy Manzella did most of the work, and OKC defeated Tacoma 10-5. Sergio Perez allowed 13 baserunners (9H/4BB), but limited the damage to 3ER in 5.1IP. Andy Van Hekken allowed 3H but 3K:0BB in 1.2IP. Erick Abreu had a rough one, giving up 1H/2ER, 1K:3BB in 0.1IP.
Manzella got himself a cycle, hitting the homer in the 8th, and ending up 4x4 with 3RBI. Anderson Hernandez (2x4, BB) and Brandon Barnes (2BB) also hit homers. Jason Michaels was 2x4 with two doubles, a walk, and an RBI. Matter of fact, eight different RedHawks had RBIs, despite going 3x12 w/RISP.
Man of the Match: Tommy Manzella
That's a six-game losing streak for the Hooks - which just so happens to coincide with when J.D. Martinez went down with a hamstring injury - as they get swept at San Antonio with a 7-3 loss. Jonnathan Aristil allowed 3H/4ER, 8K:5BB, WP in 5IP, while Patrick Urckfitz allowed 2H/3ER, 0K:3BB, WP in 0.2IP. Matt Nevarez allowed a hit and walked two, with another WP in 1.1IP, and David Carpenter threw a hitless 8th. Yes. 10BBs, 3WPs, and an HBP by the Hooks' pitching.
T.J. Steele went 3x3 with a double and 2RBI, and Jimmy Van Ostrand was 2x3 with a double and a walk. Jimmy Paredes was 1x4 with his 13th SB. Wladimir Sutil was 0x5 on the night.

Lancaster had a 4-3 lead, but a 5-run 6th by San Jose led to a 9-6 win over the JetHawks. Luis Cruz got his 2nd start of the season, and it wasn't pretty: 4IP, 5H/3ER, 2K:1BB, WP, 2HBP. Wes Musick took the loss, however, with 5H/5ER, 1K:1BB in 1.1IP. Mike Ness allowed 2H/1ER, 2K:1BB in 2IP, and Wander Alvino allowed one of Ness' runs with 1H in 0.2IP. The JetHawks pitching also allowed 8SB by San Jose.
