Tulsa, OK-A five-run lead did not stand up as the Tulsa Drillers rallied for a 10-6 victory over the Arkansas Travelers on Sunday night. Tulsa takes the series three games to one. Arkansas hit into a season-high five double plays on the night before the Drillers posted six runs in the bottom of the seventh to take control of the game. It was a bullpen effort for the Travs pitching staff with six different hurlers taking the mound and none working more than spot starter Spencer Herrmann's 2.2 innings.

 

Moments That Mattered

* Chris Mariscal blasted a 3-run opposite field homer off Yadier Alvarez to push the lead to five in the fifth inning.

* D.J. Peters answered Mariscal's homer with a three-run blast of his own in the bottom of the inning to bring the Drillers back within two.

* Tulsa scored six times in the seventh inning on five singles, an intentional walk, two hit batsmen and a wild pitch. Errol Robinson's hit drove home the go-ahead run.

 

Notable Travs Performances

* CF Beau Amaral: 2-4, 2 runs

* 2B Chris Mariscal: 3-4, run, HR, 3 RBI
