Sacramento River Cats 9 Omaha Storm Chasers 4

No walkoffs decided the game on Thursday but plenty of poor Storm Chasers defense played a part as the Chasers defense committed six errors to give the River Cats plenty of free offense early. ¬†Most of the errors that occurred were behind Mike Montgomery who got it all started in the first with an error of his own on a wild pickoff attempt at first. ¬†The Chasers defense following that mistake would make back to back errors on a routine ball to shortstop Tony Abreu that he booted and a force attempt at second that Clint Robinson threw into the outfield that would score a run. ¬†Montgomery would give up an RBI single to Chris Carter that put the Chasers down 2-0 where he would hold them as the inning would end. ¬†Omaha’s offense would make good for their poor defense scoring four runs in the top of the 2nd with Kevin Kouzmanoff doing much of the damage as he drove in two runs with a double and scoring on a Cody Clark sac fly. ¬†More Chasers defensive errors would highlight the second and third innings as the River Cats would get unearned runs in each inning to even it up. ¬†Sacramento starter Brad Peacock and Montgomery would calm down following their individual storms working quickly thru the 4th and 5th before turning things over to the bullpen. ¬†Turning things to the pen went well for Sacramento but not so much for Omaha with Sacramento’s Erick Threets and Evan Scribner working the final four innings scoreless while Ethan Hollingsworth and Francisley Bueno couldn’t match that success giving up five runs total in the sixth and seventh inning to take the loss. ¬†For all the success at Werner Park Omaha has dropped seven of their last eight road games.

NW Arkansas Naturals 2 Springfield Cardinals 0

For a team that hasn’t been around long the Naturals sure do like to write plenty of history as they collected their second no hitter in the clubs short existence Thursday. ¬†Reliever Greg Holland got things started for the staff striking out the side in the 1st inning of what hopefully will be his last rehab appearance. ¬†In the bottom of the first Wil Myers would extend his hitting streak while driving in Paulo Orlando to give Chris Dwyer a 1-0 lead when he’d enter in the 2nd. ¬†Up one Dwyer would put together one of those outings that makes you think there is still a chance for the lefty who has struggled the last two seasons. ¬†He worked 6.2 innings of no hit ball working around an error by his shortstop, a couple walks and a batter that he hit striking out 5 in that time and flummoxing Cardinals hitters before getting lifted with two down in the 8th. ¬†The Naturals would turn to Kendal Volz to finish off the no hitter and the former Red Sox farmhand got things handled getting a pair of ground outs after Christian Colon saved his bacon by stabbing a hard hit liner at short. ¬†This no hitter took four pitchers and didn’t include a triple play but I’m sure NW Arkansas fans will take it anytime the Naturals want to throw one in front of them.

Wilmington Blue Rocks 7 Lynchburg Hillcats 2

Quiet through the first two games of the series with Lynchburg the Rocks bats woke up with a little help from the Hillcats defense to salvage the final game of the series.  Every hitter in the Rocks lineup got at least one hit on the night helping to score single runs in the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 7th innings that built a 4-2 lead for starter Sugar Ray Marimon.  With that lead in the 8th the Rocks would put a bit more together using back to back doubles from Brian Fletcher and Brett Eibner to score one run and two out hits RBI single by Alex McClure to plate two more putting the game well out of reach for Lynchburg.  Sugar pitched well again giving the Rocks 7 solid innings leaving due to the fact that they needed to get his piggyback partner some innings as opposed to his pitch count.

Kane County Cougars 5 Clinton LumberKings 3 

Cougars again tonight couldn’t get things going early but kept plugging away until they got the big hit that would turn their fortunes for them. For the first 6+ innings of the contest it was Clinton pitcher and Bethany, MO native Jordan Shipers quieting the Cougars bats thanks in part to all that work he put in with Jamie Bluma at 68 Inside Sports in the offseason, limiting the Cougars to just 1 run on 2 hits while working around 4 free passes. The Cougars would get Jordan out and take advantage of the bullpens inability to throw strikes ass Danny Mateo, Lane Adams and Michael Antonio would draw walks of relievers John Taylor and Tim Griffin. With Griffin fighting the zone and not wanting to bring home a run via a walk he made an even bigger mistake putting one in a hittable spot for Orlando Calixte who obliged with a grand slam over the left field wall to give Kane County a 5-3 lead. ¬†That home run would be enough for the Cougars to hang on to give them the series win and a chance to go for the sweep tomorrow.

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.

    Just an observation not a complaint of Myers, but he is striking out a LOT more than in the past….I mean a lot toooo….any reason’s or concerns? Any one seen him hit this yr…I just hope that doesn’t follow him up the ladder…

    Really don’t know. Greg pointed at the 200 AB mark as a good benchmark based on Royals history of call ups but Wil is hitting so well and learning a new position that he could be called up tomorrow or wait another month. Your guess is as good as mine. Goldstein made a good point last week that the difference between AA/AAA isn’t great so its not hurting Wil much but I would like him to see more advanced secondary offerings and deal with pitchers with a little more savvy.

  • jtt199

    I know we are only 30 games into the season, but when does Myers move up to AAA? He is absolutely crushing the ball in AA.
