Oklahoma City scored nine times over the final two innings to defeat the Storm Chasers 11-4 Wednesday afternoon at Werner Park.
Omaha took a 1-0 lead in the first. Christian Colon was hit by pitch, took third on a Ben Broussard single and scored on a passed ball charged to RedHawk catcher Carlos Perez.
Oklahoma City took a 2-1 lead in the fourth on George Springer's single followed by Brandon Laird 12th home run of the year. The Storm Chasers came right back in the home fourth as Irving Falu singled and Quintin Berry hit his second HR of the season. Omaha went up 4-2 in the fifth on Colon's eighth home run.
The RedHawks scored seven runs in the eighth inning. Robbie Grossman singled and scored on Jose Martinez's double to knock Justin Marks out of the game. With Springer batting, a wild pitch by Michael Mariot (2-5) allowed Martinez to take third. He came home on Springer's single to tie the game at 4-4. Brandon Laird singled to put runners at second and third. With Jimmy Paredes batting, a throwing error by Mariot on a pick-off attempt moved the runners up. Paredes then singled them both in and took second on an error by right fielder Anthony Seratelli.
After Marwin Gonzalez popped out to catcher Brett Hayes, Jonathan Singleton singled Paredes to third base. He scored on a Perez sacrifice fly to make it 7-4. Ruben Sosa then knocked an inside-the-park home run to also plate Singleton.
Donnie Joseph replaced Mariot on the mound to start the ninth. Martinez reached on an infield single and Springer doubled. Laird walked to load the bases. Paredes singled in Martinez and Springer would score when Marwin Gonzalez grounded into a double play.
Philip Humber (1-4) got the win in relief.
