Round Rock rallies past RedHawks

From Staff Reports Published: September 1, 2012

Julio Borbon's two-run single keyed a five-run ninth inning as the Round Rock Express rallied past the Oklahoma City RedHawks 6-3 on Saturday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The loss snapped the RedHawks' six-game winning streak and dropped them two games behind the Albuquerque Isotopes in the Pacific Coast League's American South division. With just two games to play, any RedHawks loss or Isotopes win clinches the division for Albuquerque.

Round Rock trailed 3-1 entering the ninth inning but batted around in a five-run inning. Ryan Spilborghs had an RBI double, and Luis Hernandez added a two-run triple to cap the scoring.

Chuckie Fick (2-2) took the loss for the RedHawks, allowing four runs on two hits and a walk without recording an out in the ninth. Round Rock's Willie Eyre (1-2) picked up the win.

Round Rock and Oklahoma City continue the four-game series at 6:05 p.m. Sunday in Bricktown. Right-hander Greg Reynolds (11-8, 4.98 ERA) is scheduled to start for the Express against RedHawks right-hander Jose Cisnero (3-1, 3.28 ERA).
