— Brett Wallace hit two home runs to help the RedHawks wrap up their road trip with a 10-7 victory over the Sounds at Greer Stadium on Friday night.

Oklahoma City got off to a strong start, scoring four runs in the first inning and knocking Nashville starter Wily Peralta out of the game. But the Sounds chipped away at the lead, and the game was tied at 5 when when Wallace hit a two-run home run off Victor Garate in the sixth inning to put the RedHawks in front for good. His second home run came in the eighth.

Nashville's Logan Shafer went 4-for-5 with two homers, a triple, and three RBIs.

The RedHawks' Brett Oberholtzer (1-1) earned his first Triple-A win, allowing four earned runs over five innings.  He allowed eight hits with three strikeouts and no walks.

Oklahoma City finished its 11-game road trip with a 5-6 record.

Next up for the RedHawks is a four-game homestand with the Omaha Stormchasers. The first game is at 7:05 p.m. Saturday night.

Bud Norris, a Houston Astros pitcher who is with the RedHawks on a rehab assignment, will get the start for Oklahoma City. He is expected to throw 75-85 pitches.
