MIDLAND, Texas (AP) -- Edwin Diaz homered and had two hits, driving in two, and Kyle Friedrichs allowed just six hits over seven innings as the Midland RockHounds beat the Springfield Cardinals 7-2 on Sunday. With the victory, the RockHounds swept the three-game series.

Friedrichs (6-7) allowed one run while striking out four to get the win.

Down 1-0 in the second, Springfield tied the game when Brian O'Keefe hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Johan Mieses.

After Midland added a run in the second on a home run by Greg Deichmann, the RockHounds extended their lead in the third inning when Nate Mondou and Diaz hit back-to-back two-run and solo home runs.

The RockHounds later tacked on a run in both the fourth and eighth innings. In the fourth, Dan Gamache hit an RBI double, while Mickey McDonald hit an RBI single in the eighth.

Tommy Parsons (4-6) went six innings, allowing six runs and eight hits in the Texas League game. He also struck out one and walked two.
