One day after New Orleans dominated them, the RedHawks flipped the script, cruising past the Zephyrs in an easy 12-3 win at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark on Sunday. Oklahoma City (54-40) and New Orleans (49-46) split the four-game series.

TURNING POINT

Bryan Peterson drilled a two-run homer in the first inning and it looked like we were in for a continuation of the night before when New Orleans won 8-0. But Oklahoma City starter Brett Oberholtzer settled down, tossing six quality innings, and the RedHawks offense finally woke up, putting three runs up in the second inning and cruising from there.

IT WAS OVER WHEN …

New Orleans reliever Evan Reed imploded in the bottom of the seventh. Jimmy Paredes led off the inning with a single and Fernando Martinez followed with a double. From there, Reed's lack of control took over. In the four-run inning, he walked two and threw two wild pitches, turning the OKC lead from 5-2 to 9-2.
