MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Kylie Norwood blasted a three-run home run in the fifth inning, her first of the season, which proved to be the winning runs in Tulsa's 6-5 win against Memphis on Thursday afternoon.

The homer put Tulsa up 6-1, but the Golden Hurricane would have to hold off a late Memphis charge as the Tigers put four across in the bottom of the seventh before Kylee Nash came in to close the game and earn TU's first save of the season.

Tulsa improved to 13-23-1 and 2-4-1 in the American Athletic Conference, while Memphis fell to 15-27 and 1-9 in conference play.
