RedHawks 5, Nashville 1

Oklahoma City (5-1) won its fifth consecutive game and second straight over Nashville (1-5).

Before 9,246 fans at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark on Tuesday night, the RedHawks continued their splendid pitching to start the Pacific Coast League season as four Oklahoma City pitchers combined for a five-hitter and no earned runs. Through six games, the RedHawks' combined team ERA is 2.32.

RedHawks starter Paul Clemens (1-1) had his second quality start and collected his first win of the season. He pitched five innings against Nashville, fanning five batters, allowing five hits and just one unearned run.

Clemens, the No. 5 prospect in the Astros organization, outdueled Nashville starter Wily Peralta (0-1), who is considered the top minor league prospect of the Milwaukee Brewers. Peralta struck out six RedHawks and allowed just two hits and two runs in five innings worked but took the loss.

AT THE PLATE

For the second straight night, the RedHawks won with only five base hits. Shortstop Jed Lowrie had two RBIs, pinch-hitter Justin Ruggiano belted a two-run double off the right-center field wall in a three-run seventh inning. Outfielder Fernando Martinez lined an RBI double in the seventh to score Ruggiano for his team-leading seventh RBI.
