ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico -- The Oklahoma City RedHawks scored six unanswered runs Monday to erase a four run deficit and top Albuquerque 8-6, snapping a three-game losing streak in the process.

Trailing 6-2 in the top of the seventh, the RedHawks (41-55) snapped off four runs in four at-bats to tie the game. Luis Durango doubled to center field to put two runners in scoring position, followed by a J.B. Shuck two-run double to center field.

Two batters later, Drew Locke tripled to right field to bring Shuck home to close the gap to one run. After a pitching change, Anderson Hernandez hit a sacrifice fly to left field to score Locke and tie the game.

In the top of the eighth, Tommy Manzella homered to left field to give the RedHawks an 8-6 advantage heading into the final inning. Trayvon Robinson cut the Isotopes' (50-45) deficit to one run in the bottom of the ninth thanks to a two-out home run, but Corey Smith struck out two batters later to end the game.

Sammy Gervacio (3-0) remained perfect on the season, allowing just one hit and struck out one batter in his 1.1 innings of service. Justin Miller (1-3) was credited with a loss for the outing, allowing two earned runs on two hits and walking three in 1.1 innings pitched.
