Huge Sixth Inning Dooms Drillers

Posted: Updated:

The Arkansas Naturals (16-17) used a 7-run sixth inning to break a 0-0 tie and run the Tulsa Drillers (16-17) right off the field Thursday night.

Matt Long doubles twice in the inning while Taylor Lindsay drilled a 3-run homer as Arkansas seized control of the game.

After pitching a scoreless five innings, Dan Houston (0-3) allowed six runs (four earned) while only managing to record one out in the sixth.

Brandon Hynick (2-2) allowed just one run in seven innings to earn the win for Arkansas.

Kent Matthes got Tulsa on the board in the bottom of the sixth with an RBI single and Kyle Parker added a 2-run homer in the eighth, but Tulsa could get no closer.

The two teams get back at it Saturday night in Tulsa with the first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
