TULSA, Oklahoma – Fireworks lit up the sky at ONEOK Field on the 4th of July, but the Drillers couldn't light up the scoreboard enough beforehand.

Tulsa dropped a 6-5 holiday contest to San Antonio on Monday night despite racking up 10 hits and posting a four-run inning.

The Drillers' slow start was simply too much to overcome as they were held scoreless for the first five innings.

Meanwhile, the Missions took a 3-0 lead after the first three innings.

Tulsa produced an inspired comeback in the sixth, with four straight RBIs in four at-bats to take the lead out of nowhere.

The Drillers even added a run in the bottom of the seventh on a solo shot from Thomas Field, and things were looking up with a 5-3 lead.

But Jaff Decker started off the eighth with a home run for the Missions and a single from Ali Solis drove in a run to tie the game.

Blake Tekotte homered in the top of the ninth to put San Antonio over the top.

Each of Tulsa's RBIs came from a different batter in the game.

Adam Jorgenson was credited with the loss on the mound for Tulsa, throwing 1.1 innings and giving up two hits and a run.

The two teams will continue their series at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday before Tulsa gets a day off on Wednesday.
