The Omaha Storm Chasers scored nine runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and cruised to a 13-6 win over Las Vegas. Shortstop Raul A. Mondesi homered, drove in three runs and finished a single shy of hitting for the cycle.
“This is a special player”, said Omaha manager Brian Poldberg. “He has got a chance to be a five tool guy at the major league level. If the bat comes around he has got a chance to be an MVP type guy because of all the things he can do.”
The Storm Chasers pounded out 16 hits in a game that also included an hour and seven minute rain delay.
Omaha starter Alec Mills earned his third win in five starts at the Triple-A level, while reliever Kevin McCarthy tossed three perfect frames of support.
