Pair Of Home Runs Doom Drillers

The Naturals took an early lead on a Wil Myers' solo home run in the bottom of the first inning. Tulsa responded with 3 runs over the next four innings.
Northwest Arkansas would retake the lead in the sixth when Mario Lisson goes with Schmidt's 1-1 pitch over the middle, sending it over the wall in right field. It was a 3-run blast that gave the Naturals a 4-3 lead.
It was the final run of the game.
