TULSA, Okla. (AP) Luke Grayson hit a three-run homer and Frisco scored at least one run in each of the last five innings to post a 10-to-4 victory over the Tulsa Drillers.

Frisco was leading 1-0 when Grayson's homer increased the advantage to 4-to-1.

The Drillers answered with three runs in the bottom of the fifth, including Jordan Czarniecki's homer.

After Kevin Richardsons home run in the top of the sixth put the RoughRiders in front 5-1, the Drillers got three runs in the bottom of the inning. A single by Jud Thigpen appeared to tie the game as Stewart and Czarniecki crossed the plate. But, Czarniecki was ruled to have missed third base and was called out on an appeal.

It would be as close as Tulsa would get. The Riders scored a pair of runs in the seventh and one run in the eighth inning.

They capped the night with consecutive solo home runs by Adam Morrissey and Jim Fasano in the ninth.
