Hanser Alberto had three hits, including a three-run home run, and four RBIs as the Round Rock Express topped the Oklahoma City Dodgers 8-4 Thursday at Dell Diamond in Round Rock.
The win was the seventh in eight tries for the Express. Round Rock has won 14 of its last 18 contests.
Up 3-2, the Express added to their lead in the fourth inning when Alberto hit a three-run home run to score Cliff Pennington and Juan Centeno.
The Express (44-66) later tacked on two runs in the eighth when Centeno hit an RBI double and then scored on a single by Alberto to secure the victory.
Round Rock starter Tyler Wagner (1-3) picked up the win despite allowing four runs and seven hits over five innings. The victory was his first of the season, accomplished with the help of a season high six strikeouts.
Opposing starter Daniel Corcino (2-2) took the loss in the Pacific Coast League game after a rough outing in which he allowed six runs and eight hits over 3 1/3 innings. Jeffrey Springs pitched two scoreless innings for his first save of the season.
Andy Ibanez went 2-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI for Round Rock. Drew Robinson and Willie Calhoun each drove home a run for the Express.
Scott Heineman had a hit for Round Rock a day after setting a record in the Triple-A All-Star game with four stolen bases Wednesday. The Pacific Coast League defeated the International league 12-7 with the help of Express closer R.J. Alvarez who recorded a strikeout in the All-Star contest.
