Tulsa gets one back in the second, Justin Yurchak doubles to right, Kody Hoese scores it’s 2-1.
Michael McGreevy would bear down, he gets Devin Mann to strike out swinging.
But the Drillers tied it up, but Springfield retakes the lead in the third, again it’s Nunez a single to left, Pinder scores it’s 3-2 Cardinals.
And Springfield holds off a late Driller charge and wins 7-6.
