Oklahoma City's Jose Cisnero delivered a strong performance in his Triple-A debut and the RedHawks' offense came through in a 6-2 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers in front of 9,623 on Saturday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

AT THE PLATE

Designated hitter Brett Wallace hit a mammoth three-run homer in the first inning, putting OKC up 4-0 early. It was Wallace's 16th homer and second in last three games.

Matt Dominguez later added a two-run double. Mike Hessman opened the scoring with an RBI double in the first.

Omaha's Wil Myers hit his 17th home run in the top of the fourth.

ON THE MOUND

Cisnero was brilliant, throwing seven innings and allowing just one run. He allowed six hits and walked two, but continually worked his way out of trouble.

Enerio Del Rosario, who was just demoted by Houston, worked out of a jam in the eighth. Jose Valdez, though, allowed an RBI single to Irving Falu in the ninth.

Omaha's Ryan Verdugo (7-3) allowed six runs on six hits and two walks in five innings.

UP NEXT

The RedHawks (62-45) and Storm Chasers (63-45) continue their series at The Brick on Sunday at 6:05 p.m.
