The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

If they don't win, it's a shame

Which they didn't, but what the heck.

The Triple-A Oklahoma RedHawks dropped their home opener at the Brick in front of about 11,500 fans. Omaha's Royals won 8-3, and the fireworks display promised for the evening was cancelled due to higher-than-usual winds.

Now 6-3, the 'Hawks remain on top of the Pacific Coast League East division, though they can't expect to stay there if they strand ten runners every night.

Which ML team owns them?

The club is a farm team of the AL Texas Rangers, though its ownership is mostly local. (In the 70s and 80s, when the club was in the now-disbanded American Association, it served as the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.)
