*The Hawks' Cedeno (2-3) was the hard luck loser. He surrendered just two hits and one walk. Cedeno struck out six before Enerio Del Rosario took over in the sixth inning.

EXTRAS

*The loss dropped Oklahoma City to 66-73 and assured the RedHawks of a losing record, just the fifth since Triple-A baseball moved from the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds to Bricktown in '98. The RedHawks still have a chance to avoid finishing last in the division, though. They are two games behind third-place New Orleans (67-72) with all five remaining regular season games vs. the Zephyrs. ...

*The RedHawks have played 54 one-run games; they have a 28-26 record in those.

UP NEXT

*The series at New Orleans ends with a 7:05 p.m. game Thursday. The teams then move to The Brick on Friday for the final four games of the regular season. On Thursday, right-hander Paul Clemens (0-0, 0.00) debuts for Oklahoma City after spending the majority of the season in Double-A. Righty Tom Koehler (11-7, 5.15) is New Orleans' scheduled starter.
