Koby Clemens sent a solo home run to left field in the bottom of the second to take an early lead, but Iowa would rally back.

The Cubs knocked in a pair of runs off a double from Brad Snyder in the fourth to take a 2-1 lead.

But Clemens had some fans experiencing déjà vu in the sixth, as he sent another solo shot over the wall, this time to center field, to tie the game.

Drew Locke provided the go-ahead RBI in the sixth inning as he single to bring home Luis Durango.

OKC held Iowa scoreless for the game's final five innings in the victory.
