Two members of Chicago’s 2016 World Series title team paced Iowa past Omaha at Werner Park.

Shortstop Addison Russell’s grand slam highlighted a seven-run sixth inning and rehabbing pitcher Mike Montgomery limited to the Storm Chasers to one hit through six innings in a 9-1 victory for the Cubs on Friday.

Phillip Evans and Jim Adduci each hit two-run home runs for Iowa off Omaha starter Scott Blewett (2-2). The blast from Adduci, in the sixth, broke open a 2-1 game. Russell’s grand slam came later that inning.

Montgomery (1-1), on the injured list for a lat strain since April 6, gave up a leadoff single to Humberto Arteaga in the first inning. He then walked Jecksson Flores before retiring 17 consecutive batters.

Cheslor Cutherbert drove in the lone Omaha run when he grounded into a force play in the first. He was the last Chaser on base until Montgomery walked Flores with two outs in the sixth in an eight-run game.

Andrew Susac and Erick Mejia had Omaha’s only other hits, singles off Dakota Mekkes in the eighth.

Blewett allowed seven runs on eight hits and walked four batters in 5⅔ innings. Reliever Michael Ynoa replaced him in the decisive sixth and walked Ian Happ before surrendering the grand slam to Russell.

The win was the fourth in a row for the first-place Cubs. It snapped a three-game win streak for Omaha.
