The Oklahoma City RedHawks completed the series sweep against Iowa with a come from behind rally in the bottom of the ninth to top the Cubs 4-3.

With two runners aboard and two outs, OKC's Brad Snyder smashed a long ball to center field scoring three and giving the RedHawks setting a new record with their 13th consecutive home victory.

The 13 consecutive wins tie the old record, set back in 1999 when the RedHawks won their final 13 home games of the season.

Oklahoma City's breakout ninth inning was a far cry from its production early on in the night.

Iowa's Luis Valbuena started off the second with a double to center. Ty Wright the grounded out to first moving Valbuena to third and he came around to score one batter later when Blake Lalli grounded out putting the Cubs up 1-0.

The third inning started off similar to the second as Iowa's Diory Hernandez dealt a leadoff double. One batter later, Frankie De La Cruz laid down a sacrifice bunt and as the Redhawks threw to Jimmy Paredes as second he missed the catch allowing Hernandez to score. Three batters later, another OKC error allowed the second run of the inning to score putting Iowa up 3-0.

Neither team found the scoreboard again until the seventh.

Brady Snyder stepped to the plate for OKC with two outs already on the board. Snyder connected on a grounder to left and later stole second. Brandon Barnes followed with another single to left and Snyder swiftly shuffled home for the first RedHawks run of the game to make it 3-1.

In the ninth, OKC's Brian Bixler and Paredes started off the frame with back-to-back singles setting the table for the comeback. But the next two batters, Matt Down and Matt Hessman, both struck out putting all the pressure on Snyder.

The count was full when Snyder sent Rafael Dolis' pitch all the way to center field sealing OKC's win.

Enerio Rosario picked up his second win for OKC pitching one inning of relief. Starter Wes Musick went six innings allowing three runs while striking out one on the night.

Snyder went two-for-four on the night with three RBI to pace Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City returns to action Thursday as they begin a four-game home series against New Orleans. First pitch on Thursday is set for 7:05 p.m.
