The Drillers return to ONEOK Field after being on the road for the last week in Arkansas and Missouri. The club will take on the Northwest Arkansas Naturals with the first game taking place on Thursday, August 6 and the final game being played on Sunday, August 9. All four games will have starting times of 7:05PM.
With summer wrapping up, fans can come out to enjoy Margaritaville Night on Thursday, August 6, take in a beautiful post-game fireworks show on Friday, August 7, or take advantage of one of multiple back-to-school themed giveaways during the short homestand.
The complete list of promotions is below.
Individual tickets for all the games, and any other game this season, are currently available for purchase online at TulsaDrillers.com, in person at the ONEOK Field Ticket Office (201 N. Elgin Avenue) or over the phone at (918) 744-5901.
URIAS IS BACK: After missing almost two months following cosmetic surgery to remove a benign mass in his left eye, top pitching prospect Julio Urias is back and showing why he is the number two Dodgers prospect, and the number five overall prospect in all of baseball, according to MLB.com. In just his third appearance with Tulsa since the medical procedure, Urias threw 5.1 hitless innings.
SPARKS IN THE LINEUP: The Drillers lineup has definitely benefited from the efforts of its leadoff man Ronald Torreyes, along with pinch-running extraordinaire Robbie Garvey. Torreyes leads the team with a .342 average when leading off an inning while hitting at a solid .289 clip overall. After being promoted to Tulsa two weeks ago, Garvey has made an exciting impact while being used exclusively as a pinch-runner. The speedster has gone 7-9 in stolen base attempts in the 10 games he has appeared in while scoring three runs.
AGAINST THE NATURALS: Facing the squad out of Springdale, the Drillers have gone 11-13 against the Naturals thus far in 2015.
LEADING THE TEXAS LEAGUE: Tulsa starter Chris Anderson currently leads all Texas League pitchers with 9 wins thus far this season. The big, right-hander has shown flashes of brilliance this season, showcased by a complete-game, eight strikeout victory against the Arkansas Travelers last month. Anderson will aim for his 10th win at some point this homestand.
