Michael Mitchell's line drive 2-out single into center field was good enough to bring home Angelys Nina from second base and deliver a 7-6 win over Arkansas in ten innings.
It was Mitchell's only hit of the game in 6 at-bats.
The Drillers appeared in control for most of the evening before Arkansas scored 3 runs in the top of the seventh to tie the game at 6.
Third baseman Nolan Arenado, the Rockies' top minor-league prospect, finished 1-3 with an RBI. Arenado is batting .349 through the first 17 games of the Texas League season.
The second of four games begins tomorrow evening at 7:05.
