RedHawks 10, Cubs 6

Eight consecutive batters reached safely in a six-run second-inning to help the RedHawks coast to a 10-6 win over the Iowa Cubs Friday night in front of 9,946 fans at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The RedHawks led 8-0 after three innings. Robbie Grossman and Jose Martinez both had three hits to lead a 15-hit attack. Brandon Laird drove in three runs in the RedHawks' first home game in two weeks.

Iowa first baseman Edgar Gonzalez drove in four runs, including a three-run double in the seventh.

Wade LeBlanc allowed three runs in five innings to pick up the win.

Grimm results

Justin Grimm, acquired by the Chicago Cubs in a trade for Matt Garza earlier in the week, was roughed up for seven runs on eight hits and two walks in his Iowa Cubs debut. Grimm was 7-7 with a 6.37 ERA in 17 starts with the Rangers.

Two I-Cubs ejected

Iowa manager Marty Pevey and Cubs hitting coach Brian Harper were ejected in the second inning following a bizarre play.
