  • 0

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Omaha Storm Chasers’ offensive woes continued Monday with a 5-1 loss to Memphis.

The Chasers have lost seven of their past eight games and have been held to one run or fewer six times in that span.

Rey Fuentes hit a solo home run — his second of the season — in the seventh inning for Omaha’s only run. Jose Martinez added two hits.

Chasers starter Clayton Mortensen held the Redbirds hitless until the fifth inning, when he gave up a two-run homer to Ty Kelly. Jacob Wilson added another two-run homer for Memphis in the seventh off reliever Scott Alexander.

Mortensen and Alexander held the Redbirds to four hits, but combined to allow six walks. Memphis starter Zach Petrick allowed one run on four hits in seven innings.
