Eddie's Farm: May 4

Oklahoma City (11-15)

Drew Locke hit a 2-out 10th-inning pinch-hit homer to give the RedHawks a 4-3 win over Nashville. Jordan Lyles threw 6IP, 5H/2ER, 9K:2BB, with 73 of his 109 pitches coming in for strikes. Gustavo Chacin allowed 1H/1R (0ER), 1K:1BB in 0.2IP. Ross Wolf threw 1.1IP, striking out two, and Sergio Escalona struck out three of the seven batters he faced in 2IP.

Collin DeLome was 4x5, giving him six hits in his past 9ABs. Koby Clemens (who got the start at 3B) was 2x5 with an RBI, and Anderson Hernandez had an RBI double. J.B. Shuck was 1x3 with 2BBs. But it was Locke who came through with the clutch, game-winning hit. OKC is on their first W3 streak of the season. Which means that Brandon Lyon will destroy it the next chance he gets.

Man of the Match: Jordan Lyles
