NASHVILLE — Oklahoma City continued to get strong pitching Thursday, and the RedHawks beat Nashville 4-2 in Pacific Coast League baseball at Herschel Greer Stadium.
The trio of starter Nick Tropeano and relievers Rhiner Cruz and Kevin Chapman allowed just two hits and three walks while striking out nine. The only runs surrendered were on Eugenio Velez’s two-run homer in the sixth inning, off Tropeano, that drew the Sounds within 3-2.
Domingo Santana and Erik Castro had solo homers for Oklahoma City (23-18). Santana’s sixth homer of the season came in the eighth inning to give the RedHawks their final two-run cushion.
Oklahoma City and Nashville (21-19) continue the series at 7:05 p.m. Friday.
