OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma City RedHawks gave their fans an exciting show in their first game back from the all-star break.

The RedHawks trailed 3-0 going into the bottom of the seventh inning but struck for four runs in inning to propel them to a 4-3 victory.

What makes it even more exciting is all four runs with two outs.

OKC's first run came off a bases-loaded walk for Brandon Barnes, scoring Brett Wallace. Second baseman Angel Sanchez then recorded an RBI single on a soft grounder to the short stop to drive in Matt Dominguez to cut the Zephers' lead to 3-2.

The RedHawks' comeback effort was completed when Fernando Martinez singled on a ground ball to New Orleans' short stop Donnie Murphy, but a throwing error to third allowed OKC's J.B. Shuck and Brandon Barnes to score to take a 4-3 lead; a lead the RedHawks would hold onto.

Paul Clemens got the start for Oklahoma City, pitching 4.2 innings and allowing three runs on six hits. Hector Ambriz picked up the win after allowing one hit and no runs in 2.1 innings of work on the mound for his first victory of the season. New Orleans' right hander Evan Reed was charged with the loss.

The RedHawks improved to 53-38 on the year with the win and will host New Orleans again on Friday at 7:05 p.m.
