Round Rock five homers beat the Royals 8-3 snapping the Royals three-game winning streak. It took awhile for the bats to get going as neither team had a hit until the fourth inning when a pair of Round Rock homers made it 4-0 off Bryan Bullington.
Express starter Josh Banks (8-5) pitched eight innings, allowing five hits, three runs, two earned, no walks and three strikeouts to beat the Royals for the first time in three starts. Banks retired the first 14 batters of the game before Jai Miller hit a 440-foot shot to dead center.
The series wraps up tonight. Omaha is 4-3 on their 17 game road trip so far.
