Langfels' Clutch Homer Lifts Tulsa Past Arkansas

Posted: Updated:

Jayson Langfels' ninth-inning RBI single lifted the Drillers to a 4-3 home win Wednesday night.

Thursday, he took it a step further.  

Langfels led off the top of the 11th with a solo blast to left field, giving Tulsa a 4-3 lead it wouldn't relinquish.  The win is the Drillers' fifth in its past seven tries.  

The game was tied 1-1 in the top of the fourth when Tulsa's Dustin Garneau crushed a home run to left to give the Drillers the 2-1 edge.  Later that inning, Jaron Shepherd drove home Langfels with a single through the left side to make the score 3-1 Tulsa. 

Arkansas battled back to tie it with two runs in the bottom of the sixth, but couldn't get the go-ahead run across. 

Cole White pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win for Tulsa, while Christian Bergman tossed seven innings, allowing three runs and earning a no-decision.  Mike Morin took the loss for Arkansas. 

Game 2 of the four-game series is Friday night in Arkansas as the Drillers look to make it three wins in a row.
