The Drillers defeated the Missions by way of two walk-off wins at ONEOK Field earlier this week. On Tuesday night, Game 1 went into extra innings before Keibert Ruiz delivered a game-winning single to shallow left field to score Gavin Lux from second. In Game 2 on Wednesday night, the Drillers found themselves down by a run in the bottom of the ninth. Ruiz came through again with an RBI single to tie the game. Then with two outs and the bases loaded, San Antonio uncorked a wild pitch that plated Drew Jackson for the game's winning run.
Tulsa needs one more win to end its 20-year championship drought. Spread the word, and join everyone from DrillVille on Friday night at the ONEOK Field Busch Scoreboard Bar!
