The O-Royals get a big lift from Angel Sanchez. Their shortstop is hitting just .196, but he tripled to break a 3-3 tie in the 6th and the O-Royals offense came to life in the late innings to beat up the Salt Lake Bees 13-3.
After Sanchez gave Omaha the lead, Jason Smith hit his 20th homer of the season and Kila Kaaihue hit his second homer since being promoted from Class AA Northwest Arkansas. Kaaihue also drew his minor league-leading 81st walk. Kaaihue also had two singles while driving in four runs and is 4 for 9 with five RBIs in his first two Class AAA games.
Sanchez talks about his big night and Mike Jirschele talks about the offensive production from his team.
