OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma City RedHawks have now won eighth straight at home with Thursday night's 4-1 victory over Nashville.

Brett Wallace homered for the second-straight game and Wes Musick dealt six strong innings in his first Triple-A win to move OKC to 31-23 on the season.

Nashville jumped out to an early lead in the first when Sean Halton's groundout scored a run, but it would prove to be the only one for the Sounds.

The Redhawks followed suit in the bottom of the inning. With one on and one out, Fernando Martinez tripled to right scoring J.B. Shuck to knot the game 1-1.

In the third, a wild pitch by Mark Rogers scored Scott Moore to break the tie. Then with a runner on and two out, Wallace homered into the RedHawks bullpen for the second straight night to put the RedHawks ahead 4-1.

In his first home game since joining the RedHawks, Musick (1-1) allowed just one run over six strong innings. The lefty allowed seven hits while striking out four. He held the Sounds to an 0-for-5 mark with runners in scoring position. Of his 85 pitches, 60 were strikes.

Rogers (1-3) lost for the second time this season against the RedHawks after allowing four runs and six hits over five innings. He struck out six and walked two.

The Albuquerque Isotopes also lost to New Orleans, putting the RedHawks in sole possession of first place in the American Southern Division.

The RedHawks will look for a sweep of the Sounds in the series finale Friday night at 7:05 p.m.
