TACOMA, Wash. — Tacoma charged to an early lead and received strong pitching from Erasmo Ramirez and Brian Sweeney to beat the Oklahoma City RedHawks 5-1 late Saturday night at Cheney Stadium.

A last-place Tacoma (49-66) team won three of four games against Oklahoma City (63-51) that is trying to keep pace with division leader Albuquerque. The RedHawks fell 21/2 games out of first place by losing their sixth game in seven outings.

Oklahoma City started a four-game series Sunday at Salt Lake City.

Ramirez (4-2) allowed the Hawks' only run — unearned after a two-out error by first baseman Justin Smoak — on five hits. Ramirez threw 77 pitches, with 55 going for strikes. Reliever Sweeney earned his first save of the season by retiring all nine batters he faced.
