NW Arkansas scored three runs in the top of the second and three more in the top of the sixth to power past the Tulsa Drillers on Thursday night at ONEOK Field. 

The Drillers were in a 7-2 hole, but scored four in the bottom of the seventh to get back into the game.  But the Naturals added two more in the eighth to put the final stamp on a 10-6 win. 

Andy Ferguson (1-0) allowed two runs in five innings to earn the win. Tyler Anderson (1-1) allowed four runs in just four innings and took the loss.

Whit Merrifield homered and drove in three to lead the Naturals, while Jorge Bonifacio tripled and drove home two. 

Delta Cleary Jr. drove home three runs to lead the Drillers' offense. 

The loss drops Tulsa to 6-8 on the season.  The Drillers are back in action Friday night against the Naturals.
