OMAHA, Nebraska -

The Oklahoma City RedHawks didn't get it done in the decisive manner they did on Monday, but on Tuesday the RedHawks got the victory in dramatic fashion.

Oklahoma City beat the Omaha Storm Chasers 7-6 after Fernando Martinez hit a solo home run in the 10th inning to break the tie and ultimately decide the victory.

The RedHawks (56-40) blasted Omaha 16-6 on Monday, but had to overcome a four-run deficit for the victory in Werner Park on Tuesday.

In the bottom of the 10th, OKC's David Carpenter retired the first two Omaha batters before Derrick Robinson singled to keep Omaha's chances alive. It didn't last long, as the next batter flied out to deep center to end the game for Carpenter's third save of the season.

Carpenter wasn't the only bright spot for the RedHawk bullpen, either. OKC's relievers threw 5.2 scoreless innings to assist in the come-from-behind win.

With OKC down four in the sixth inning, Brett Wallace belted a three-run homer to do a lot of the leg work in the comeback. Jimmy Paredes evened things up in the seventh on an RBI line-drive single to score Brandon Barnes before Martinez won it for OKC in extra innings.

The two teams meet again on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m.
