The Oklahoma City RedHawks closed the gap on division-leading Albuquerque with a 3-1 victory on Thursday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The RedHawks (75-64) trail the Isotopes (77-63), who lead the Pacific Coast League's American South, by 1½ games with four to play. The RedHawks have won five in a row, including a four-game sweep of Albuquerque.

Thursday night, Brad Snyder's two-run single in the eighth inning was the big hit for the RedHawks, snapping a 1-1 tie. Snyder scored the RedHawks' first run on Brian Bixler's RBI single in the sixth.

OKC starter Brett Oberholtzer scattered seven singles over 7 1/3 innings, striking out six with no walks. Reliever Chuckie Fick (2-1) worked two-thirds of an inning to get the win. Jose Valdez closed it out to earn his 21st save.

The RedHawks open a season-ending, four-game homestand against the Round Rock Express with a 7:05 p.m. game Friday night in Bricktown. Albuquerque returns home to face Omaha.
