Redhawks stave off Cubs’ rally; Iowa’s losing streak now at seven games
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (I-Cubs) — The Iowa Cubs (41-64) scored four runs in the top of the ninth inning, and had the potential tying run at the plate, when Jose Valdez induced a ground out to preserve the Oklahoma City RedHawks’ (60-44) 10-8 win at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark tonight. The Cubs have set a new season-high with a loss in seven straight games and are now 0-6 in Bricktown this season.
The Cubs built an early lead against RedHawks‘ starter Brett Oberholtzer. In the top of the first inning, Dave Sappelt singled, stole second and third, and scored when Matt Dominguez mishandled Josh Vitters‘ ground ball for an error. The Cubs added two more runs in the second on consecutive two-out doubles by Jim Adduci and Sappelt following a single by starter Chris Rusin.
The RedHawks got on the board against Rusin in the bottom of the third thanks to a two-run single with two outs by Fernando Martinez. The RedHawks added four more runs in the bottom of the fourth to take a 6-3 lead. A walk and two singles loaded the bases. Chris Wallace drove in two with a base hit, Angel Sanchez scored on a wild pitch, and Wallace scored as Brandon Barnes reached on a fielder’s choice.
