ROUND ROCK, Texas — Nine-hole hitter Greg Miclat had a solo homer and added a two-run double Sunday night, leading Round Rock past Oklahoma City 4-2 in Pacific Coast League baseball before 10,182 fans at The Dell Diamond. The last-place Express managed a split of the four-game series against the division-leading RedHawks, who have Monday off before starting a series Tuesday at Nashville.

Pitcher Roy Oswalt continued to get in baseball shape after settling a contract dispute with the Texas Rangers. During his second start for Round Rock, he surrendered both Oklahoma City runs on six hits and a walk. He struck out six in six innings before relievers Neal Cotts and Aaron Heilman blanked the RedHawks on two hits the rest of the way.

Oswalt threw 100 pitches with 70 going for strikes. He is 1-1 with a 5.25 ERA with Round Rock.

Oklahoma City (41-29) led once, 1-0, after 2½ innings before the Round Rock (31-40) answered with two runs in the bottom of the third, which included Miclat's first homer of the season. He gave the Express the lead for good in the bottom of the sixth inning with the two-run double. Both of Miclat's big hits came off Oklahoma City starter Paul Clemens, who gave up 13 hits in six innings.

Angel Sanchez had three of Oklahoma City's eight total hits.

Infielder Brett Wallace, who was sent back to the RedHawks late Saturday night by the Houston Astros, did not play Sunday.

Left-hander Wes Musick (1-2, 3.14) is the scheduled starter at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday, when Oklahoma City begins its four-game series in Nashville.
