TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Northwest Arkansas Naturals pounded out 12 hits in a 6-5, late-inning victory for the team’s second consecutive win over the Tulsa Drillers.

Cheslor Cuthbert’s RBI infield single in the top of the eighth inning Friday night plated Brian Bocock from third base for the go-ahead run.

Naturals starter J.C. Sulbaran (0-1, 4.38) recorded the first quality outing by a Northwest Arkansas starting pitcher this year, allowing a single run while scattering five hits and striking out four over the course of six strong innings of work.

Sulbaran retired nine in a row from the third inning through the fifth inning and worked out of would-be trouble in the sixth to end his night.

Hassan Pena shut the door in the ninth to notch his first save for the Naturals.
