PAPILLION, Neb. — Matt Fields hit two home runs and collected all six RBIs over the seventh and eighth innings Friday night, leading Omaha to a 6-2 baseball victory over Oklahoma City before 8,066 fans at Werner Park.

The Storm Chasers’ designated hitter was a one-man wrecking crew, ripping a two-run, two-out homer in the eighth inning off reliever Alex White. Omaha loaded the bases with one out in the ninth inning against oft-reliable closer Jason Stoffel, and then Fields drilled his ninth homer of the season, a grand slam, to give the Chasers their winning margin.

Before the RedHawks’ bullpen imploded, Oklahoma City starter David Martinez blanked Omaha on three hits, a walk and four strikeouts in six innings. Oklahoma City scored a run in the fourth inning, when Enrique Hernandez hit his fifth home run of the season. After Omaha took a 2-1 lead in the seventh inning, the RedHawks tied it in the eighth on Carlos Perez’s solo homer.

Omaha (33-28) and Oklahoma City (32-30) continue the series with a 7:05 p.m. game Saturday. Right-hander Mike Foltynewicz (4-3, 3.40) is the scheduled starting pitcher for OKC. Omaha will counter with righty Sugar Ray Marimon (4-2, 2.84).
