The Tulsa Drillers broke out of a two-game losing streak on Saturday with a 2-1 victory against Northwest Arkansas at ONEOK Field.

NW Arkansas got on the board first when Paulo Orlando hit a ground-ball single to drive in Yem Prades but that wrapped up the scoring for the Naturals on the evening.

Tulsa drew even in the bottom of the first inning when Corey Dickerson stole home after Ben Paulsen struck out swinging. Dickerson scored because of a throwing error by the catcher.

Tulsa scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth when Angelys Nina doubled on a line drive to center field to score Paulsen.

The two teams are scheduled to play again at ONEOK at 7:05 p.m. on Sunday.
