Thanks to Brett Wallace, Van Hekken is a Push

Newcomer Brett Wallce picked up Andy Van Hekken, who had one of his worst starts in more than a month Wednesday night. Wallace hit a two-run double in the top of the 9th to give Oklahoma City a come-from-behind win over Las Vegas and leave Van Hekken with a no decision. Wallace, who was playing in his first game for the RedHawks since being demoted, had a total of four hits, two doubles and three RBI in his 2011 AAA debut.

Van Hekken gave up 13 hits and five earned run in only 5 2/3 IP. He saw his ERA jump to 3.27.
