AAA Omaha (32-16): L 4-15

Omaha lost a laugher in their first game without Emmanuel Rivera. Rivera came out of the game with an injury in Kansas City and so Edward Olivares was yanked after one at bat for the Storm Chasers. Gabriel Cancel finished the game 3-5 with a 2B and HR #12. Kyle Isbel finished 2-5 with a double. Tyler Zuber struck out a pair in a scoreless inning. Scott Blewett takes the bump for Omaha tomorrow night.

AA Northwest Arkansas (23-23): W 19-4

A+ Quad Cities (31-16): L 0-1

Kind of a $h!t happens game for the River Bandits last night. Each team tallied just 3 hits, one team walked in a run, the other didn’t. Nick Loftin singled once, John Rave singled twice. Noah Murdock struck out 3 in 3.1 innings to start things off and looked dominant doing it. Zaach Haake takes the mound tomorrow as they’ll try again.

A- Columbia (25-20): L 5-6

Columbia continues to slide a bit as they just can’t get everything clicking all at once. Tyler Tolbert finished 2-5 with a 2B nd SB #25 for the season. Rubendy Jaquez finished 3-4 with a 3B. Juan Carlos Negret hit HR #8. Darryl Collins finished 1-4. Adrian Alcantara struck out 5 in 5 scoreless innings to start things off. Cruz Noriega takes the mound tomorrow.
