Omaha Storm Chasers
The Omaha Storm Chasers got plenty of timely hitting, going 7 for 20 with runners in scoring position, and four pitchers combined to allow one run on five hits in a 14-1 rout of Round Rock in front of 3,093 at Werner Park on Thursday night.

With winds of 27 mph blowing out to right field, and at times gusting to 45 mph, conditions were ripe for a team with lots of left-handed hitters.
Omaha scored all six of its runs with two outs as three pitchers combined for a four-hit shutout Tuesday night in a 6-0 victory against Round Rock.
