OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- The Oklahoma RedHawks will try to extend their Pacific Coast League-best winning streak to seven games tonight when they continue a four-game road series against the Omaha Royals.

The RedHawks have won the first two games of the series, including a 3-2 win Sunday. Eric Hurley earned his first Triple-A pitching win, allowing three hits and a walk and striking out nine in six innings.

Oklahoma now is 2-and-a-half games behind New Orleans in the PCL's American South Division.

Alfredo Simon is expected to be Oklahoma's starting pitcher Monday while Omaha plans to start John Bale.

The RedHawks and Royals will conclude the series tomorrow before the RedHawks head home to begin a series against Nashville.
