Noah Cameron, Brad Keller, and Drew Parrish combined to toss the Northwest Arkansas Naturals' (25-23, 54-63) fifth shutout of the year in a 7-0 win over the Tulsa Drillers (19-30, 60-58) on Friday night. The series continues on Saturday with a 7:05 PM CT first pitch at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale, Arkansas.

The Naturals got on the board in the bottom of the first inning, giving Cameron a run in support after Jorge Bonifacio lifted a sacrifice fly to left, scoring Javier Vaz to make it a 1-0 game. Bonifacio extended the lead in the third, driving home Diego Hernandez with a single to give NWA a 2-0 advantage.

Two runs scored in the bottom of the fourth on a wild pitch and an error to make it a 4-0 game while Cameron continued through the fifth. The lefty battled the Drillers over five innings, allowing five hits and two walks with three strikeouts while keeping them off the scoreboard.

NWA scored again in the seventh and eighth to extend the lead to 7-0, while Keller tossed a seamless inning of work as he continued his MLB rehab.

Parrish finished off the game, working around three hits and three walks while striking out three Drillers en route to his first save of the season and just the second of his career.

The Naturals and Drillers continue the six-game set on Saturday with a 6:05 PM CT first pitch. RH Mason Barnett gets the start for the Naturals at Arvest Ballpark.
