TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Nathan Haynes went 4-for-4 and scored two runs as the Arkansas Travelers beat the Tulsa Drillers 8-5 Sunday in a Texas League game.

Haynes stole his 25th base of the season in the third inning.

Arkansas scored three runs in that inning, highlighted by Gary Johnson's two-run double, and the Travelers would never trail after that.

Arkansas added three runs in the fifth and two in the seventh.

Tulsa's Hank Blalock hit a two-run single in the seventh and the Drillers added two more runs in the eighth.

Arkansas' Chris Bootcheck (2-1) allowed three runs and nine hits in seven innings. Colby Lewis (7-9) lasted only 4 2/3 innings in the loss.
