The hits keep coming from Anderson Hernandez's bat. The RedHawks shortstop extended his hitting streaks to 26 consecutive games Sunday with a third-inning single to center.
“That's amazing,” DeFrancesco said. “He's got a nice and easy, real relaxed kind of attitude. He goes out there and doesn't seem to be under any pressure.
“Once you get up over 25, it seems like every bat is life or death, but he is a veteran. He has been around the league awhile, and hopefully he can finish this whole string out.”
After completing the nine game home-and-home series against Iowa on Sunday, the RedHawks now begin an eight game home- and-home stretch against New Orleans.
Oklahoma City starts a four-game series in New Orleans on Monday night then returns home Friday night to begin a four-game homestand against the Zephyrs to finish the season.
Oklahoma City can finish the season at .500 by sweeping the Zephyrs and avoid a last-place finish in the standings. The RedHawks were 16 games under .500 at one point this season.
