Omaha Storm Chasers 8 Memphis Redbirds 4

Veteran lefty John Lannan did what he usually does – give up a number of hits due to his less than inspiring stuff while navigating through a lineup. On this day he was able to get away with it as Memphis was unable to connect on anything but singles while also being unable to bunch them together in his six innings of work. Of the three runs allowed by Lannan, two came via his own mistake when he uncorked a wild pitch in the 3rd and another that drew dirt via a passed ball in the 4th, scoring baserunners from 3rd both times. Lannan was rewarded by the Chasers offense with eight runs; included in that a five-run 2nd inning, all coming with two outs. Shortstop Dusty Coleman got the inning started with a two run home run prior to a string of five hits that featured a Hunter Dozier RBI double. Only Balbino Fuenmayor went hitless in the lineup, missing a chance at his first home run of the year when the wind blowing to the south knocked it down at the wall.

Frederick Keys 7 Wilmington Blue Rocks 2

The Rocks tied a game after trailing for 7 innings only to watch Frederick score five unanswered runs in the bottom half of the inning and cruise to a win. The Rocks put up just six hits on the night while going 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position. Up to that point in the 7th inning, Wilmington had gone scoreless in 15 consecutive innings in the series. The loss for the Rocks was their fifth in a row to the Keys after taking two of three versus them in mid-April.
