Cleary delivers walkoff winner for Tulsa

Posted:
TULSA (MILB.com) - Entering the ninth inning Tuesday night at ONEOK Field, Delta Cleary Jr. had enjoyed a big night at the plate with three hits from his leadoff spot. The outfielder didn't stop there though. His fourth hit of the evening in the bottom of the ninth scored Jose Rivera from second base with the winning run as the Drillers rallied for a 6-5 walk-off win over Northwest Arkansas.

The dramatic victory was not the only news of the night for the Drillers as they also learned who their opponent in the Texas League playoffs would be. Arkansas defeated Springfield 5-4 on Tuesday to clinch the second-half North Division crown. The Drillers and Naturals will meet in the best-of-five North Division Playoff Series with Tulsa hosting games one and two on September 3 and 4 of next week.
