SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ Alvin Colina's eighth-inning grand slam highlights a 5-run eighth inning and lifts the Tulsa Drillers past the San Antonio Missions 5-3.

San Antonio broke a scoreless tie last night with three runs in the fifth inning, two scoring on a bases-loaded single by Jesus Guzman.

The Drillers broke through in the eighth against San Antonio relievers Stephen Kahn, Byron Embry and Ryan Rowland-Smith.

Kahn walked Matthew Miller and Christian Colonel with one out, and Embry walked Jordan Czarniecki and Jud Thigpen, the only two batters he faced, to force in a run.

Colina followed with a home run, his 11th of the season, over the left-field fence off Rowland-Smith.

Tulsa reliever Zack Parker pitched a scoreless seventh inning to pick up the win and Jim Miller recorded his seventh save of the baseball season.
