Omaha shortstop Pedro Ciriaco drove in five runs on three hits, including a home run, as the Storm Chasers routed New Orleans 9-2.

Omaha went up 1-0 in the second when Justin Maxwell singled and Brian Bocock doubled him home. Maxwell singled with one out in the fourth and Bocock reached on a fielding error by third baseman Josh Rodriguez before Ciriaco homered to left to make it 4-0. After Juan Graterol flied out, Whit Merrifield was hit by a pitch and scored on Christian Colon's double for a 5-0 lead.

The Storm Chasers added two in the fifth on RBI singles by Ciriaco and Graterol and two more in the sixth on a lead-off homer by Colon and another RBI single by Ciriaco to make it 9-0.

The Zephyrs spoiled the shutout on a Kyle Jensen double and Matt Juengel home run.

John Lamb (5-8) got the win and Adam Conley (3-5) took the loss.
