SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) -- Keibert Ruiz hit a pair of homers, leading the Tulsa Drillers to a 14-3 win over the Northwest Arkansas Naturals on Thursday.
Drew Jackson and Luke Raley also homered for the Drillers.
The home runs by Ruiz, both solo shots, came in the second off Emilio Ogando and in the fifth off Grant Gavin.
Tulsa right-hander Mitchell White (2-4) picked up a quality start and the win after allowing one run on six hits over 6 2/3 innings. Opposing starter Ogando (5-6) took the loss in the Texas League game after a rough outing in which he allowed nine runs and seven hits over three innings.
Kelvin Gutierrez singled three times, scoring two runs for the Naturals.
