Omaha scored in every inning but one, putting six runs on the board in the first en route to a 13-2 spanking of Iowa Saturday night at Werner Park.

David Lough reached on a fielding error by third baseman Ian Stewart, Christian Colon singled and Johnny Giavotella singled to load the bases. Xavier Nady singled in a run and Max Ramirez walked to force in another. Anthony Seratelli doubled home two more to make it 4-0. Brett Hayes' sacrifice fly to left scored Ramirez and Irving Falu singled in Seratelli.

Ramirez doubled home Nady in the second to make it 7-0. The Cubs scored two runs in the third on a single, triple and double, but the Storm Chasers added to the lead in the home third when Lough hit into a double play with the bases loaded.

Nady's fourth home run of the year in the fourth made it a 9-2 game. In the fifth, Lough was hit by a pitch. After Colon popped out to first, Giavotella and Nady doubled scoring two runs and it was 11-2.

Omaha didn't score in the sixth, but added single runs in the seventh on Lough's second HR of the season and in the eighth on Seratelli's third homer.

Every Omaha batter had at least one hit with Nady going 5-for-5 and Falu going 4-for-5. The Storm Chasers totaled 21 hits, more than enough support for starter Brian Sanches (2-1).

Drew Carpenter (1-3) lasted only three innings, charged with eight runs on nine hits.
