Oklahoma City (28-23), 1.0 up
OKC scored four runs in the 3rd inning, and that was all they needed in a 4-3 win at Iowa. Ross Seaton got his 2nd consecutive win, throwing 5.1IP, 3H/3ER, 1K:2BB, and lowering his ERA to 7.78. Alex Sogard (1.2IP, 1K:3BB), Rhiner Cruz (1K), Jose Valdez (1K) held the Cubs hitless over the final 3.2IP.
Cody Clark and Andy Simunic each had two hits; Jonathan Villar and Brett Wallace had a hit and a walk each. Marc Krauss and Jake Elmore drew two walks each. Elmore and Wallace had your RBIs. (Of note: Brian Bogusevic was 1x2 with 2BB and is hitting .369 for Iowa, Edwin Maysonet was 0x3)
