RedHawks Drop Series Finale To Round Rock

Posted: Updated:
ROUND ROCK, Texas -

More than 10,000 fans packed Dell Diamond Sunday night to see Roy Oswalt take the mound for the Round Rock Express in a warm-up start before being called up to the Texas Rangers.

Oswalt didn't disappoint, limiting the Oklahoma City RedHawks to two runs on six hits over six innings, as the Express downed the RedHawks, 4-2.

The win for the Express earned a split of the four-game series with OKC.

Oswalt threw 100 pitches, striking out five and walking just one in his six innings of work.

Angel Sanchez paced the RedHawk offense, going 3-4 with an RBI single.

Nine-hole hitter Greg Miclat had a great game for Round Rock. Miclat went 2-3 with three RBIs, a double, and a home run.

OKC got on the board first in the bottom of the third, when Scott Moore's two-out single scored Jimmy Paredes. Round Rock responded immediately in the bottom of the frame, when Miclat homered to lead off the inning and tie the game. The Express took the lead later in the inning on an RBI double by Brad Nelson.

The RedHawks tied the score at two in the sixth inning on an RBI single from Sanchez. Once again, the Express countered with two of their own in the bottom of the inning.

Michael Bianucci and Luis Martinez had consecutive two-out singles, before Miclat came up and doubled to right to bring them both in.

Oklahoma City put a couple of runner on in the eighth inning, but had two runners gunned down stealing to end any sort of threat.

Aaron Heilman worked the last two innings for his third save of the season for Round Rock.

Oklahoma City starter Paul Clemens took the loss for the RedHawks, dropping to 8-5 this season.

The RedHawks have a rare day off Monday, before heading to Nashville for a four-game series.
