SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ Pete Ciofrone hits a two-run homer in the bottom of the tenth inning to lift San Antonio over Tulsa 3-to-1 in a Texas League game.

The teams were tied at 1-1 after the Missions got a homerun Wednesday night in the second from Will Venable and Duke Sardinha hit a homer for the Drillers in the third inning.

Neither team could break the tie until the bottom of the tenth, when Brett Dowdy walked, then stole second base. Ciofrone homered on a fly ball to right field, allowing him and Dowdy to score.

Jonathan Ellis got the win, allowing one hit and no runs in an inning of relief.

Tulsa's Juan Morillo (4-3) pitched one and a third of an inning picking up the loss for the Drillers.
