OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma City RedHawks scored all of their runs in the second inning for a 3-2 win against the Reno Aces Thursday in front of 5,203 at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The win gave the RedHawks (63-50) a seventh-straight win, tying their season-best winning streak.

Oklahoma City also improved to 3-0 against the Aces (45-68) and now sits a season-high 13 games above .500.

The RedHawks scored first Thursday, marking the seventh game in a row Oklahoma City got on the scoreboard first.

A bunt single by Che-Hsuan Lin brought home Rene Garcia, who joined the RedHawks Thursday from Double-A Corpus Christi, for the first run of the night.

The Aces' lone runs of the night came in the sixth inning on a two-run homer by Ed Easley – his fifth of the season.
