TULSA (KFAQ) - The Tulsa Drillers will conclude the month of July with a 7-game homestand at ONEOK Field that will begin on Thursday.  The stand will open with a four-game series against the Arkansas Travelers (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) July 25-28, and will finish with a three-game set versus the Springfield Cardinals (St. Louis Cardinals) that will run July 29-31.

All seven games in the stand will begin at 7:05PM in downtown Tulsa. 
The promotions schedule will include Margaritaville Night/Thirsty Thursday on July 25, Friday Night Fireworks on July 26, Grand Slam Saturday/OKC Thunder Night on July 27 and $2 Tuesday on July 30.  The stand will conclude with Bark in the Park Night on Wednesday, July 31.
The Drillers will look to reverse a July trend.  They are only 2-8 in home games during the month.  Overall, Tulsa is .500 at ONEOK Field this season, winning 25 and losing 25. 
Arkansas has won five of the eight meetings between the two teams in Tulsa this year, while the Drillers have split the eight home games with Springfield.
