Omaha beat Memphis, 5-0.
The Storm Chasers won behind the solid start by John Lamb, who allowed just one hit and two walks over seven scoreless innings. The lone hit was a single that came in the second. The two walks were issued in the first and second innings. From there, Lamb retired 18 in a row (started by a double play in the second).
NW Arkansas had their series finale at Arkansas rained out. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader on August 24th. The Naturals are currently en route to Tulsa for their weekend series, but their bus broke down (though the new bus has arrived).
With the bases loaded and two outs in the top of the 2nd inning, Jack Lopez cleared the bases with a double to give the Blue Rocks the lead they would not relinquish. Bubba Starling would add a solo home run with two outs in the seventh.
Blue Rocks starter Jonathan Dziedzic lasted just three innings, as he walked five. Luis Santos earned the win with five solid innings of relief. He allowed one run (a solo homer) and only allowed two hits. Kyle Bartsch picked up his second save with a perfect ninth.
Lexington had Wednesday off as they begin a four-game series at West Virginia on Thursday night.
