(Wichita, Kansas-AP) -- The magic number is one for the Tulsa Drillers.

Tulsa clinched at least a tie for the Texas League's Eastern Division title by beating Wichita 6-to-5 in eleven innings Thursday night in Wichita.

Wichita rallied for four runs in the eighth and ninth to force extra innings before Tulsa third baseman Andy Tracy hit his 24th homer of the season in the eleventh.

The Drillers now lead Wichita by three games with three to play and need just one win to take the second-half title.

Arkansas was eliminated Thursday night.
