I-Cubs win on walkoff over Storm Chasers

Adrian Cardenas singled home the game-winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning as Iowa beat the Omaha Storm Chasers, 6-5, Sunday afternoon in the last of five meetings at Principal Park. The Chasers head into the All-Star break having lost their last three games, all decided by one run, two in walk-off fashion, but still own a 56-35 on the season.

Vin Mazzaro had tossed two shutout innings in relief and had retired the first two hitters before Alfredo Amezaga singled and stole second base. Dave Sappelt followed with an infield hit to push Amezaga to third and set up Cardenas’ game winning hit.
