The RedHawks got their third straight one-run victory Thursday night, beating New Orleans 2-1 in the opener of a four-game series at Zephyr Field.

Starter Brad Peacock (4-2) pitched six innings, giving up three hits and one run while striking out seven.

The Oklahoma City bullpen held the Zephyrs hitless the rest of the way.

New Orleans' only run came on a second-inning solo homer by second baseman Nick Green.

The RedHawks' first run of the game came on an RBI single by George Springer in the top of the third. OKC (47-40) then took the lead in the fifth when Che-Hsuan Lin singled, advanced to third on a fielding error, and then scored on a wild pitch.

OKC WINS LATE WEDNESDAY

The RedHawks scored six runs in the first inning on their way to a 10-9 victory over Albuquerque in front of a season-high crowd of 11,103 at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark on Wednesday night.

Second baseman Ruben Sosa went 3-for-4 to lead Oklahoma City and also notched two RBI. Dee Gordon and Brian Barden each had three hits for the Isotopes.
