Driller bits

Final series: The Drillers, after an open date Monday, will open their last series of the season Tuesday night at Midland. The six-game series continues through Sunday.

Hitting highlights: Tulsa’s Devin Mann had two homers in three consecutiv­e games (Sept. 9-11). During the past four games, he is 7-for-15 with six homers and 12 RBIs. Michael Busch has a nine-game hitting streak. Ryan Noda’s 29 homers lead Double-A.

Pitching woes: Except for Michael Grove’s effort on Friday when he allowed two runs in five innings, Tulsa’s starting pitchers had a rough series at Amarillo. In the other five games, Tulsa starters combined to allow 20 earned runs in only 15 innings.

Strong relief: Drillers reliever Mark Washington has allowed only two earned runs in 24 innings since July 24.
