Tied in the bottom of the fifth, rain suspends Storm Chasers and San Antonio's game

  • 0

A brief but heavy downpour forced Sunday’s game between Omaha and San Antonio at Werner Park to be suspended at 7-7 in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Play will resume, with the Storm Chasers still batting, at 12:05 p.m. Monday, with the regularly scheduled PCL series finale to follow.

Omaha first baseman Samir Duenez ripped an RBI single to right field in the rain to even the game just before play was stopped. The Chasers trailed 6-0 early before rallying.

Trent Grisham hit a two-run homer, his third in as many Triple-A games, off Omaha starter Scott Blewett in the first inning. Top Milwaukee prospect Keston Hiura added a grand slam in the second.

The Chasers cut the lead in half with a three-run blast from catcher Xavier Fernandez. Erick Mejia then doubled in Omaha newcomer Chase d’Arnaud to make it 6-4 after two frames. Lucas Erceg homered off Blewett, who gave up seven runs in 3 1⁄3 innings, to extend the Mission lead back to three in the fourth.

D’Arnaud opened a two-run fourth with a solo shot off San Antonio starter Zack Brown. Mejia drove in his second run of the game before Duenez tied it up an inning later.
