OKLAHOMA CITY – It was a long, low-scoring game, but something had to give.

The Oklahoma City RedHawks took 10 innings to top the Colorado Springs Sky Sox 2-1 on Sunday in Bricktown.

After four straight scoreless innings, Luis Durango reached base for OKC then advanced to second on a throwing error and eventually to third on a passed ball.

With no outs, the pickings were easy for Anderson Hernandez, who sent a simple ground ball to center to bring Durango home and seal the game.

Oklahoma City's only other run came in the bottom of the fifth on a sacrifice fly from Brett Wallace, who also drove in Durango.

Ross Wolf picked up the win in one inning for OKC, and Ryan Rowland-Smith threw five innings to start the game and gave up the only run.

The RedHawks have won two of the three games so far in the series with Colorado Springs.

They will finish out the series at 7:05 p.m. Monday in OKC.
