The Omaha Royals finish their latest homestand on a high note, beating Rock Rock on Monday, 1-0. Mike Stodolka provided the heroics.
Stodolka homered in the bottom of the ninth to cap off a brillant pitching performance by Jose Capellan who pitched eight scoreless innings.
Capellan came on in relief of John Bale, who is rehabbing for the Kansas City Royals. For the second straight game Bale came on and pitched the first inning.
Capellan is 3-0 with a 2.57 ERA, after giving up three hits and a walk while striking out seven. Stodolka’s home run was his fourth of the year and 16th run batted in.
