The Oklahoma City RedHawks earned a series split with the Sacramento River Cats on Sunday behind a potent offensive attack in a 9-3 victory at Raley Field.

The RedHawks (25-17) scattered 10 hits and scored first for the first time all series when Sacramento third baseman Josh Horton's throwing error allowed a run in the third inning.

Oklahoma City then added three more runs in the fourth and the rout was on.

Sacramento (24-19) beat Oklahoma City 6-3 late Saturday night.

AT THE PLATE

Fernando Martinez and former Oklahoma State catcher Jason Jaramillo each drove in two runs, with Jaramillo's two-run double in the fourth capping the hot start. Martinez went 2 for 4 and Jaramillo went 1 for 3, respectively.

Shane Peterson and Michael Choice each drove a run in for Sacramento.

ON THE MOUND

Oklahoma City limited Sacramento to just four hits, but walked a season-high nine.

Right-hander Brad Peacock (1-1) earned the win, throwing five innings and allowing one earned run on three hits.

Sacramento starter Justin Thomas (2-3) had allowed just one run in his two previous starts entering Sunday, but allowed seven runs — four of which were earned — in four innings of work.

UP NEXT

The RedHawks continue their 13-game road trip when they open a series in Fresno at 9 p.m. Monday night.
