Anthony Aliotti singled home Choice, Andy Parrino walked to force in Goebbert and Jemile Weeks singled to score Freitas and make it a 3-1 game.

The Storm Chasers got a run in the fourth. With the bases loaded and Manny Pina at the plate, Travis Banwart (8-5) unleashed a wild pitch allowing Brian Fletcher to score.

Sacramento went up 4-2 in the fifth. Shane Peterson tripled and scored on Choice's sacrifice fly to center. Omaha closed to within 4-3 in the seventh on Christian Colon's 11th homer.
