Storm Chasers Take 2-1 Series Lead


Omaha beat Albuquerque 7-4 to take a 2-1 series lead. The game was delayed by rain for about two hours in Albuquerque.

Anthony Seratelli (2-for-4) led off the 3rd inning with a solo homerun. Later in the inning, Max Ramirez (2-for-4) drove in two runs with a single. A two-run homerun by Mitch Maier gave the Storm Chasers some insurance in the top of the 7th inning.

The Isotopes made it interesting late, as they sent eight men to the plate in the bottom of the 8th inning and scored three runs to cut the deficit to two runs. Seratelli got one of those runs back in the top of the 9th inning with a two out RBI single.

Nate Adcock picked up the win, as he skated into and out of trouble all night. He was helped out by three double plays and two caught stealings. The Isotopes caught up to him in the 7th inning and he exited after allowing back-to-back doubles that put them on the scoreboard.

The two teams continue their divisional series on Saturday in Albuquerque. Omaha looks to take the series and head to their second straight Pacific Coast League championship.
