Drillers Return To Field With A Win

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The Tulsa Drillers returned to the playing field two nights after the death of coach Mike Coolbaugh and beat Wichita 12-to-6 with Coolbaugh's jersey hanging in the dugout.

Coolbaugh was killed Sunday night when a line drive hit him in the neck as he coached first base during a game against Arkansas in North Little Rock.

Pitcher Jon Asahina coached most of the game at first. Asahina hasn't pitched since he was hit in the head by a line drive in April in a game on the same field where Coolbaugh died.

Duke Sardinha and Corey Wimberly each homered and drove in three runs Tuesday night as the Drillers hit five home runs in the win.

The two teams play again Wednesday night at Wichita.
