It was a quiet night on the KC Royals farm. NW Arkansas and Lexington both had days off.
Omaha lost to host Reno, 7-5 as their bullpen faltered once again. After the Storm Chasers tied the game at 5-5 in the top of the 8th inning on a Willy Taveras two out, two-run single, Reno came right back to take the lead. The go ahead run came via a Donnie Joseph bases loaded walk.
Storm Chasers starter Nate Adcock was ejected (along with manager Mike Jirschele) in the 5th inning after hitting Adam Eaton with a pitch. George Sherrill followed by allowing both runners on base to score (on a double). He then gave up a run of his own. Former Royal Kila Ka’aihue hit a solo homerun in the 7th inning.
Omaha collected ten hits, but went just 3-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Max Ramirez went 2-for-4 and had the only extra base hit (a double). Xavier Nady, Anthony Seratelli, and Irving Falu each had two hits. Falu drove in two runs.
Wilmington lost to visiting Potomac, 3-2 in five innings. The rains came in the top of the 6th inning. The tarp was put on after a leadoff walk for the P-Nats.
The two teams only combined for three hits and the P-Nats only had one. Blue Rocks starter Sam Selman allowed an RBI single in the very first inning. He only lasted 4.2 innings because he walked five, hit two batters, threw two wild pitches, and allowed a stolen base.
Justin Trapp had tied the game in the 3rd inning with a solo homerun. In the 5th inning, the P-Nats scored two runs to take the lead, one on a sac fly and the other on a wild pitch. they were also helped out by a passed ball.
