Cramer went 8.0 innings, allowing just one run, and that run was unearned. He allowed five hits, walking two and whiffing five. Bobby also helped his own cause with a tremendous defensive play, fielding a Rex Rundgren bunt and making an off-balance throw home to deny a Drillers scoring opportunity.
Archie Gilbert extended his hit streak to 10 games with a leadoff double in the third inning, and Josh Horton drove him in with an RBI single. Horton later came home on Josh Donaldson's ground out, scoring what would be the winning run.
Sam Demel closed the game in the ninth, earning his ninth save in 10 chances. The former TCU star gave up a 2-out bloop single, then came right back and struck out Tulsa's Brad Corley to end the game.
Tulsa came into the game the hottest team in the Texas League, with a 5-game win streak. The Drillers had just swept a 3-game series at Frisco, allowing the RoughRiders just two runs in the three games.
