NASHVILLE — Adron Chambers had three hits, including a run-scoring double in the top of the sixth inning, to lead Oklahoma City to a 6-5 Pacific Coast League baseball victory over Nashville on Friday night before 7,071 fans at Herschel Greer Stadium.

Chambers’ sixth-inning hit drove home Jonathan Meyer, who led off the frame with a double. That gave Oklahoma City its one-run lead, which was enough for reliever Chia-Jen Lo to pick up his first win of the season and closer Jason Stoffel his fourth save.

Oklahoma City (24-18) led 3-0 after 11/2 innings, but Nashville popped RedHawks starting pitcher David Martinez for five runs in the bottom of the second inning. Three scored on Jeremy Hermida’s fourth homer of the season.

The RedHawks tied it 5-5 in the fourth inning, which included a run-scoring double from Chambers.

The teams combined for 22 hits, including 10 for extra bases. The RedHawks did not homer after hitting seven in the previous four games.

Oklahoma City and Nashville (21-20) continue the series at 6:35 p.m. Saturday. Left-hander Rudy Owens (2-2, 4.66) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Hawks. Right-hander Michael Blazek (0-2, 5.95) will throw for the Sounds.
