NASHVILLE — Blake Davis' run-scoring double was all Nashville pitchers needed in a 1-0 Pacific Coast League baseball victory Monday night over the Oklahoma City RedHawks.

A crowd of 1,601 at Herschel Greer Stadium watched Sounds starting pitcher Frankie DeLaCruz throw one-hit baseball for six innings. He walked one and struck out five before giving way to relievers Michael Olmsted and Robert Wooten. They blanked OKC on three hits the rest of the way. Wooten notched his second save of the season.

RedHawks pitchers Rudy Owens and Jose Cisnero were just as impressive. Owens surrendered the Sounds' second-inning run but finished allowing just three total hits and a walk. Cisnero gave up two hits, a walk and struck out three.

The RedHawks, who suffered their second shutout just five games deep into the regular season, finished with four hits. Jake Elmore had two of those, including a double.

Oklahoma City (3-2) and Nashville (3-2) continue the four-game series at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday.
