The RedHawks, though, struck for four runs in their half of the eighth inning with a sacrifice fly followed by a go-ahead three-run homerun.
Hunter Clanin ripped a solo shot to tie the game in the bottom of the eighth. Christopher followed with his second triple of the night before scoring on a sacrifice fly from Martinez.
