The Tulsa Drillers got six shutout innings from Dustin May and shutout the Springfield Cardinals 11-0 Tuesday afternoon at Hammons Field.

The loss ends Springfield’s five game winning streak at home after dropping the first seven games of the year on the road.

May (1-0) was brilliant, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out five.

The lefty gave up seven runs on seven hits, walking three hitters and striking out five.

The Drillers (5-6) batted around in two separate innings, sending nine men to the plate while scoring four runs in the second, and adding five more tallies in the fifth to grab a 9-0 lead.

Tulsa rightfielder D.J. Peters went two for five, doubling in two runs in the fourth, then adding a home run in the eighth off Cards reliever Jacob Patterson to make it a 10-0 game.

Centerfielder Logan Landon homered in the top of the ninth off Patterson to complete the scoring as the Drillers banged out 14 hits on the afternoon.

Springfield managed just one extra base hit, an eighth inning double by catcher Brian O’Keefe.

St. Louis Cardinals reliever Luke Gregerson continued his rehab assignment with Springfield as he works his way back from a right shoulder impingement.

Gregerson pitched a scoreless fifth inning.

Tuesday’s attendance was 2,303 for a day game that started at 11:10 a.m.

The Cards (5-7) will wrap up the homestand Wednesday with another 11:10 start at Hammons Field.
