Four pitchers combined for a three-hitter Friday night, leading the Oklahoma City RedHawks to a 3-2 Pacific Coast League baseball win over the Memphis Redbirds before 10,029 fans at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Oklahoma City starter Bobby Doran won his first game of the season, allowing one earned run on three hits and two walks. He struck out three in six innings, before the bullpen took over. Raul Valdes, Josh Fields and Kevin Chapman combined to blank Memphis (16-19) on no hits, two walks and two strikeouts.

The RedHawks (20-16) tied the game 1-1 in the bottom of the second inning when Robbie Grossman walked with the bases loaded. Oklahoma City took the lead for good in the third inning on Ronald Torreyes’ two-run double with two outs.

Oklahoma City continues its eight-game homestand at 7:05 p.m. Saturday against Colorado Springs, the affiliate of the Colorado Rockies.
