Ronny Torreyes supplied a go-ahead, two-run single to cap Oklahoma City’s three-run, sixth-inning uprising after Jio Mier tied the game with an RBI single.

OKC scored four runs in the fifth to go up 6-5. Marc Krauss supplied the big hit, a two-run single but Nashville answered with a two-run Kevin Mattison double to retake the lead 7-6.

Jonathan Villar, who had four RBIs in the doubleheader, stroked a two-run double in the third that helped the RedHawks chip into Nashville’s early 4-0 lead.

The Sounds went up 2-0 in the first when right fielder Caleb Gindl hit a controversial two-run homer, a ball first base umpire Adam Schwarz ruled fair. (Editor’s note: Triple-A does not use television replays).

Kevin Chapman picked up the win by striking out five out of the bullpen.
