It took 10 innings, but the Omaha Royals would lose last night to the Nashville Sounds 5-4. With the loss, the Royals now find themselves out of first place in the PCL American North.
Omaha trailed 4-2 going into the ninth when David Lough would get a bases loaded walk to score one run. Alex Gordon then hit an RBI single to tie the game. But that is all the damage the Royals could do as Nashville closer Chris Smith would get the next two outs and close out the inning.
The Royals are now a half game behind first place Iowa. Omaha will play the third game of their four game set tonight as Philip Humer will get the start. The Sounds will send Marty McLeary to the mound.
Game time is 6:35 tonight.
