SPRINGDALE, Arkansas -

For the second game in a row, the Tulsa Drillers gave up a late lead to Northwest Arkansas, losing on a walkoff in extras, falling 5-4 Tuesday to the Naturals.

Tulsa held a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth, when Mario Lisson hit a leadoff double to center field, stealing third base two at-bats later. After a walk, Nick Van Stratten laid down a sacrifice bunt, allowing Lisson to score from third to tie the game 4-4.

After a scoreless 10th inning, the Naturals relied on small ball to put another run on the board.

Back-to-back walks put Carlo Testa and Sharlon Schoop on base with no outs on the board. Van Stratten laid down a second sacrifice bunt, putting runners on second and third. Testa was thrown out at home in the next at-bat, advancing Schoop to third. Yem Prades singled in the next at-bat, bringing Schoop home and ending the game.

Tim Sexton (1-0) came away with a win for his work, giving up four hits and striking out three in his three innings of service for the Naturals. Zach Simmons (2-1) received his first loss for the outing, giving up one earned run on two hits and three walks in 1.2 innings pitched.

Tulsa will try to avoid a three-game losing streak, taking on the Naturals at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
