MEMPHIS, Tennessee -

After losing the first three games of its four-game series with Memphis by a combined 38-10 score, the Oklahoma City RedHawks put up a fight against the Redbirds on Monday night – just not enough to pull off the win.

The RedHawks fell to Memphis 9-8 as the Redbirds capped off the series sweep.

OKC fell behind 2-0 after the first inning and scored once in the top of the third before Memphis poured on four more in the bottom of the inning on a Steven Hill grand slam for 6-1 lead.

The RedHawks responded rapidly, scoring four of their own in the top of the fourth to cut the deficit to one.

After exchanging runs back and forth, OKC tied the game 8-8 in the eighth inning on a two-run homer by Fernando Martinez and looked poised to send the game into extra innings.

Memphis was having none of that. Redbird left fielder Mark Hamilton singled on a ground ball to left field, driving in Shane Robinson for the game ending run.

Oklahoma City returns home for a series against Iowa. The first game is set for 7:05 p.m. Tuesday in Bricktown.
