Oklahoma City (6-5)
The Redhawks got their first home win of the season in a 11-0 shutout of the Memphis Redbirds (5-5). Wes Musick got the start and was stingy on the mound, giving up 2 hits and striking out 5 over 5 innings, earning his first win of the season. Jared Cosart followed Musick on the mound with 3.2 innings pitched, allowing 3 hits and striking out 3. Kyle Hallock pitched a third of an inning. At one point Musick and Cosart combined to retire 14 hitters in a row.
Brandon Laird lead the offensive attack with 3 hits in 2 ABs, including a double, 2 runs, and an RBI. Jonathan Villar hit his first triple of the season after being moved to the bottom of the lineup. Villar was 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored. Hopefully this is a sign of him realizing baseball season has started and he needs to get his bat out of the deep freeze. Villar also had a stolen base. Jimmy Paredes (2H, 2R, 2B, 2RBI) and Trevor Crowe (2H, RBI, 2BB) each had 2 hits on the evening. Robbie Grossman (H, 2R, BB, 2K, SB), Mark Krauss (H, 3RBI) and Jake Elmore each had a hit, with Elmore extending his hit streak to 10 games.
Man of the Match: Wes Musick

The Hooks gave up solo home runs in each of the last 3 frames, losing 3-2 to the Tulsa Drillers (5-6) in walk off fashion. Austin Wates (2H, R, RBI, BB, 2SB) lead the game off with a walk and stole 2nd. He then advanced to 3rd on a wild pitch from Tulsa starter Dan Houston. Jiovanni Mier (BB, K, CS) also walked which brought George Springer (H, RBI, SB) to the plate with runners on the corners and no one out. Springer singled to right field to score Austin Wates. 3 Consecutive ground outs from Michael Burgess (2K), Domingo Santana (K), and Jonathan Meyer (0-4) would end the frame. In the 2nd the Hooks would take advantage of a Driller error that allowed Erik Castro (H, R, BB) to reach base. Carlos Perez (2H, 2B, 2K) doubled to left field moving Castro to 3rd, who would then score on an Austin Wates single. That would the be the extent of the scoring for the Hooks.
