Omaha gets swept for the first time this season, now in a first place tie

Casey Coleman was solid through six innings and four different players drove in a run to lead Iowa to a 4-2 decision over Omaha Thursday night in the last regular season road game of the 2013 campaign. The Storm Chasers were swept in a four-game series for the first time this season to fall to 67-73 and into a first place tie with Memphis, a 2-1 winner over New Orleans, in the American Conference North Division.

The Redbirds lead the tie-breaker by taking the season series from the Storm Chasers, who will have to win the division title outright to advance to the postseason.

The Storm Chasers return to Werner Park starting Friday night in a final four game series with Round Rock.
