RedHawks Come Through at the Last Minute in Albuquerque

With just one out remaining in their game Wednesday night, Oklahoma City had only five hits and were trailing Albuquerque 1-0.  However, three doubles and two walks later, the RedHawks had taken a 4-1 lead that they would ride to victory over the Isotopes. 
 
Brett Wallace and Jimmy Paredes tied the game with back to back doubles.  Then after Brad Snyder and Carlos Corporan walked, Justin Ruggiano cleared the bases with a pinch-hit double which put the RedHawks in the driver's seat.  Jose Valdez closed out the game for Oklahoma City in the bottom of the ninth, picking up his fifth save of the season.
