By San Antonio Missions | May 10, 2017 1:10 AM ET

CORPUS CHRISTI--The Missions blew a ninth inning lead but rallied for two runs on a 10th inning throwing error by J.D. Davis to complete a four-game sweep Tuesday night at Whataburger Field.

The Missions have won seven straight. It's the club's longest win streak since a 10 gamer in June and July, 2012. The win also moved San Antonio (18-14) into a first place tie with Midland, which lost its seven game winning streak Tuesday night.

Noah Perio and Franmil Reyes each finished with three hits. Perio scored four times and Reyes drove in a pair of runs.

Davis' error on a groundball by Alberth Martinez allowed Jose Rondon and Perio to scamper home with the go-ahead runs in the 10th inning.

Trey Wingenter, who was charged with a blown save in the ninth inning, was credited with the win. Adam Cimber retired the only batter he faced to collect his first save of the season.

San Antonio is 4-0-1 in five road series this year. Their 13-5 road mark is the second best in Double-A. Last year's Missions squad won only four road series for the entire season.

Wednesday is a scheduled off-day. The Missions open an eight game homestand against Frisco on Thursday night.

NOTES: Nick Schulz 19-game on base was snapped but Luis Urias extended his to 22 games...LHP Thomas Dorminy re-joined the team from extended spring training. Also joining the club was RHP Jake Smith. Both appeared in Tuesday's game.

THURSDAY: RH Enyel De Los Santos (2-0, 4.85) vs. Frisco RH David Ledbetter (1-0, 1.64) 7:05 PM
