MEMPHIS, Tennessee -- The Oklahoma City RedHawks continued to slide Saturday, falling to the Memphis Redbirds 5-1, their fourth consecutive loss of their 12-game road trip.

The RedHawks' (34-49) only run of the game came in the top of the first inning, thanks to a ground out from Robinson Cancel, allowing Collin DeLome to score from third and take a 1-0 lead. However, Memphis (44-38) immediately responded.

In the next half-inning with two outs on the board, Nick Stavinoha homered over the center field wall to tie the game. He knocked another solo shot in the bottom of the fourth, giving Memphis a 2-1 advantage. Three batters later, Andrew Brown scored on a throwing error, making it a two-run lead for the Redbirds.

Memphis tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the seventh, a RBI single from Tyler Greene and a sacrifice fly from Pete Kozma to shut the game down.

P.J. Walters (7-4) kept the RedHawks in check, giving up one earned run on six hits, while striking out four in his six innings of service. Brad Hennessey (0-1) picked up his first loss of the season, giving up three earned runs on five hits, including two home runs, in three and one-thirds innings pitched.

Oklahoma City will close out a 12-game road trip at 6:05 p.m. Sunday, before returning to Bricktown Ballpark for a seven-game home stand, starting Monday.
