NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Brendan Harris drives in three runs to lead the New Orleans Zephyrs to a 7-to-4 win over the Oklahoma RedHawks.

The Zephyrs broke a scoreless tie in the fifth inning last night when Brandon Harper's single scored Henry Mateo. New Orleans added four runs in the sixth, a rally keyed by Brandon Larson's run-scoring double and Mateo's R-B-I triple.

Oklahoma pulled within 5-to-4 in the top of the seventh, as Jace Brewer drove home two runs with a double. But New Orleans added two insurance runs in the bottom of the inning, with Harris driving in both with a single to left field.

New Orleans starter Anastacio Martinez allowed two hits in six innings to pick up the win, and Kevin Gryboski pitched two no-hit innings to record his first save of the baseball season. Oklahoma's Derek Lee took the loss.
