Tulsa 10, Springfield 6 (10 innings)
Tulsa used two big innings to pick up the victory on Monday night. In the fifth inning, Corey Dickerson hit a two-run homer (10) and Ben Paulsen doubled in two runs to score the first four runs of the frame. Paulsen eventually made his way to third base and scored on a balk while Angelys Nina scored on the following Chris Pettit single.
But the game went into extra innings, tied at six. In the top of the 10th, the Drillers loaded the bases and Jimmy Cesario unloaded them on a triple. Nolan Arenado, who went 4-for-4 with two doubles, singled in Cesario in the next at-bat.
Jhoulys Chacin made his second rehab start for Tulsa, allowing just two runs on four hits. He struck out five and walked none.
Colorado Springs 10, Omaha 7
A five-run eighth inning by the Sky Sox broke a 5-5 tie. Brandon Wood and Tim Wheeler accounted for three RBI on doubles, the latter with two of them. Andrew Brown hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning, his second since moving back down to the minors.
Guillermo Moscoso allowed five runs in 5.1 innings on eight hits and three walks. However, he wasn't on the mound when Omaha tied at 5-5 the game in the sixth inning. After walking Mitch Maier to start that inning, Moscoso got a strike out on a foul bunt and left the game. Zach Putnam entered, gave up a couple of singles, and saw Andrew Brown commit a fielding error on the single that scored the game-tying run.
