METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Corey Brown hit a grand slam in the top of the 10th inning to help lead the Oklahoma City Dodgers to a 7-1 win over the New Orleans Zephyrs on Tuesday.

The grand slam by Brown scored Chris Taylor, Will Venable and Jack Murphy. The grand slam came after a two-run single by Venable that gave the Dodgers the lead earlier in the inning.

Both Oklahoma City starter Alfredo Figaro and New Orleans starter Asher Wojciechowski delivered strong pitching performances. Figaro struck out four while allowing one run and five hits over six innings. Wojciechowski allowed one run and two hits over seven innings. He also struck out six and walked three.

Casey Fien (1-0) got the win with 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief while Drew Steckenrider (0-1) took the loss in the Pacific Coast League game.

Tomas Telis singled three times for the Zephyrs.
