OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma pitchers allow five hits and Jamie Burke had two RBI's as the RedHawks beat New Orleans 4-2 in Pacific Coast League play.

The RedHawks had all the runs they needed by the sixth inning last night, when Burke's two-run single up the middle scored Jace Brewer and Laynce Nix for a 4-0 lead.

The Zephyrs (37-38) rallied for a run in the seventh on Larry Broadway's home run and another run in the ninth off Tyrell Godwin's RBI single, but New Orleans couldn't score again.

R.A. Dickey allowed two hits, no runs and struck out three in six innings for the victory. Wes Littleton earned his second save.

Billy Traber allowed seven hits and four runs to take the loss for New Orleans.
