Wil Myers drove in three runs and Derrick Robinson scored three times in support of Jake Odorizzi, who was solid through 5 2/3 innings, as Omaha crushed Oklahoma City, 11-1, Sunday evening in the second of four meetings at Bricktown Ballpark. The Storm Chasers pounded out 15 hits to end a three-game slide and improve to 64-45 on the season and 6-4 on their 12-game road trip.
The Storm Chasers, who had been held to three runs over their last three games, erupted for four runs on five hits in the third inning against former Kansas City farmhand Brian Bass. Derrick Robinson opened the frame with a double and scored on a two-base hit by Irving Falu, who advanced to third on a fly ball out and scored to make it 2-0 on a Myers single to center field. Clint Robinson then connected on a base hit before a ground-rule double by Tony Abreu brought Myers home and advanced Clint Robinson to third, from where he scored on a David Lough sacrifice fly.
Myers came through with a two-out, two-run single in the fourth that pushed the visitors advantage to 6-0 before they knocked Bass out of the contest and blew it wide open with five more runs in the fifth. Derrick Robinson walked to force in a run, Falu singled in a run and Johnny Giavotella drove home a pair with a base hit to cap the rally. Bass was tagged with the loss after he gave up nine runs on 11 hits while walking two and striking out two in four-plus innings of work.
