PCL All-Star Stephen Piscotty (3-for-4) recorded his team-leading 30th multiple-hit game, ripped his 25th double (second-most most in the league), and drove in a pair of runs. St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong (2-for-4) added two hits in his third game with the Redbirds while rehabbing a left shoulder strain. Outfielder Tommy Pham (1-for-3) extended his hitting streak to a season-best seven straight games with a single in the sixth.

Memphis plated all three runs in third to move out to a 3-0 lead against New Orleans starter Brian Flynn (7-6). After Luis Mateoand Wong singled, Piscotty lined a two-run double down the left field line. Xavier Scruggs followed by bringing Piscotty home on a bloop single to right field.

New Orleans scored their only two runs in the next frame, which highlighted by four base hits by the Zephyrs. Both runners scored on Kyle Jensen’s two-out single.
The Zephyrs threatened in the ninth, but came up short against four Memphis pitchers. With two runners on, Pedro Felicianorecorded the final two outs for his first save of the season.
