Eddie's Farm: August 16

Oklahoma City (56-68)

Reno for the Redhawks to hang close and grab the walkoff win, 5-4, on a Robinson Cancel two out single to center. Happ threw 108 pitches and gave up 6H and 3BB in 5 IP, leaving after allowing 3ER. Wesley Wright threw 2IP, 1H/0ER; Doug Arguello followed with 0H/0ER, 1K:3BB in 1.1 IP; and Fernando Abad finished up with 0H/0ER, 1K:0BB in .2 IP to earn the W.
