For the first time this season the Omaha Storm Chasers have lost a Pacific Coast League series.
The Iowa Cubs toughed up Omaha starter Jonathan Dziedzic for five runs in the first inning in a 10-3 victory as the I-Cubs won three of four games in the series at Werner Park. Dziedzic gave up eight runs in five innings of work.
“I think they really only hit two or three balls hard”, said Omaha manager Brian Poldberg. “He kept his composure and battled and got through five.”
Dan Vogelbach had a pair of homers and drive in four runs for the I-Cubs, part of a 12 hit attack.
“It was one of those days where nothing we did we did well and they had everything going.”
Omaha continues a homestand by opening a series against Memphis this evening.
