Omaha Storm Chasers 6 Round Rock Express 5

Falu delivered the winner

 

You definitely can’t say the Storm Chasers aren’t exciting after their second walkoff win in as many days Wednesday. ¬†Irving Falu who scored the game winning run yesterday did the honors with the game winning hit to mark a three run bottom of the ninth to climb out of a two run deficit. ¬†The Chasers started the night well collecting three hits in the first inning including a run scoring double from Kevin Kouzmanoff to take an early 2-0 lead. ¬†After that first inning Martin Perez settled down grabbing control of the game working quick and accurately for the next four innings. ¬†While Perez was handling things for his squad Vin Mazzaro had some tough luck in the third when the Express put together some soft hit singles and a pair of sacrifice files to take over the lead at 3-2. ¬†The Chasers would continue to trail giving up a run in the 6th, scoring themselves to pull back within a run and then giving up a run in the 8th to trail 5-3 heading into the ninth. ¬†In that ninth Jarrod Dyson would get things started with a one out infield single and quickly moving to third with a steal of second and advancing to third on a wild throw to second, Derrick Robinson would follow with a walk putting the tying run on base. ¬†Hot hitting Tony Abreu would pop out bring Clint Robinson up with two down. ¬†CRob would get plunked on a 2-2 pitch loading the bases for Kevin Kouzmanoff, all Kouz would do is single back up the middle scoring the speedy Dyson and DRob while moving David Lough to third after he came in to pinch run for Clint. ¬†With the game knotted at 5 and still two out Irving Falu would complete the 2 out 2 run rally, save the teams from getting a chance to play extras once again while also delivering the Chasers their fifth win in a row to improve to 6-1 on the young season.

Carolina Mudcats 5 Wilmington Blue Rocks 3

Another night and another tough night for the Wilmington offense with the Rocks able to only put 3 hits on the board against the Cleveland Indians farm club.  Angel Franco collected for two of the Rocks three hits driving in two runs during a three run 6th inning that tied the game after Carolina put up a three spot on Tyler Sample in the 1st.  With the game knotted at 3 and the Rocks offense on hiatus the Mudcats pushed two across against a struggling Chase Boruff for his second loss of the season.

Beloit Snappers 3 Kane County Cougars 2

The Cougars went looking for their second consecutive series win¬†Wednesday but ran into a¬†big¬†righthander in Madison Boer who was more than capable of quieting their hot bats.¬† Boer, a 2011 2nd round pick from the University of Oregon showed his advanced pitching ability limiting the Cougars to just 3 hits and 1 walk during his five innings while putting 9 down via strikeout.¬† Kane County’s two hottest hitters Justin Trapp and Jorge Bonifacio remained hot collecting two hits apiece but the rest of the lineup could only put together 3 more.¬† One of those three was an RBI double from Orlando Calixte that went over the first base bag in the 4th inning that resulted in the ejection of Beloit manager Nelson Prada who disagreed with the call.¬† With their manager ejected the Snappers players responded with two double and a single in the top of the fifth to take a 3-1 lead which would end up being enough for them to take the game and the series.

About The Author

Clint Scoles

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that. I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.
