Austin Wates collected three hits, and Carlos Perez supplied the go-ahead hit to lead the RedHawks to a 7-5 win over the Nashville Sounds on Sunday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

After Nashville tied the game on Hector Gomez’s two-run homer in the eighth, Joe Sclafani led off the bottom of the inning with an infield single. Preston Tucker singled but was picked off first.
