— Oklahoma City catcher Carlos Corporan delivered the game-winning hit for the RedHawks in the 11th inning Friday with an RBI double down the right-field line to seal a 5-4 victory over the New Orleans Zephyrs.

Corporan, who had not had a game this season with more than two hits, went for 5 for 5. Four of his hits were singles.

Mickey Storey (7-2) pitched the final three innings for the win and overcame an error in the bottom of the 11th by Brett Wallace.

The RedHawks had a chance to take the lead in the 10th, but a failed squeeze bunt with runners on the corner and no outs squashed that chance.

Oklahoma City (51-37) took a 4-1 lead behind Angel Sanchez's two-out RBI single in the seventh.

But Nick Green tied the game for New Orleans (46-43) with a three-run homer off Oklahoma City starter Armando Galarraga.

Galarraga, though, pitched a solid game until that point. He finished with a season-high six strikeouts and no walks.

Oklahoma City and New Orleans continue the series on Saturday at 6 p.m. The RedHawks have not won consecutive games against the Zephyrs this season.
