The Omaha Storm Chasers took a commanding 2-0 lead in the American Conference Championship with a 7-4 win over the Oklahoma City RedHawks, powered by a five-run sixth inning. The next two games of the series will be played at Werner Park with the Chasers seeking a third straight Pacific Coast League Championship round appearance.
After Omaha blew an early 2-0 lead with Oklahoma City scoring four runs in the fourth inning, the Storm Chasers offense responded with a big inning of their own in the sixth. A RBI double by Gorkys Hernandez tied the game at 4-4, then the next batter Irving Falu provided the game-winning hit with a two-RBI double. The seven runs were the most Omaha has scored at Oklahoma City all season, with the previous high being five runs.
