The Storm Chasers had 20 hits in their 14-4 win at Colorado Springs Sunday afternoon.

Johnny Giavotella doubled home David Lough for a 1-0 lead in the first. In the second, Adam Moore, Willy Taveras and Paulo Orlando singled for another run. Taveras and Orlando pulled off a double steal and both then scored on Irving Falu's single to make it 4-0.

Up 5-2 in the fifth, Anthony Seratelli singled, stole second and took third on a wild pitch by Tyler Chatwood (2-1). After Moore walked, Seratelli stole home before Taveras tripled in Moore.

Charlie Culberson hit a two-run homer in the seventh for Colorado Springs, cutting the lead to 8-4, but the onslaught continued in the ninth as Omaha scored six more runs.

Xavier Nady led off with a double and went to third on a wild pitch. Seratelli singled him home and Chad Tracy and Moore followed with back-to-back home runs. Orlando, Falu and Lough all singled to load the bases and Nady doubled home two more.

Every Chaser had at least one hit and Lough, Nady, Taveras and Orlando each had three. Lough was the only batter without an RBI and Giavotella was the only visitor who didn't score.

Ryan Verdugo (2-2) got the win, going 7.1 innings, charged with four runs on six hits, walking three with four strikeouts.
