LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) _ A 13th inning grand slam by Paul Ottavinia gave the Tulsa Drillers an 8-4 Texas League victory over the Arkansas Travelers on Sunday.

The game had been tied at 3 since the sixth, when Jason Jones knocked in a go-ahead run in the 13th. Ottavinia gave the Drillers an 8-3 lead.

A single run by the Travelers in the bottom of the inning, on a solo homer by Kevin Burns, wasn't enough.

The Travelers had tied the game in the sixth when Trent Durrington scored from third on a throwing error. Durrington had reached base on a walk, and then stole second and third.

Reliever Jim Brink raised his record to 1-2. Francisco Rodriguez (0-1) took the loss after three innings in relief.
