Max Ramirez singled in the game-winning run in the seventh inning to lift Omaha to a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over Oklahoma City in the second game of a doubleheader Sunday night. The Storm Chasers dropped the opener, 6-5, in 10 innings. Sitting at 33-43 on the year, Omaha now trails first place Iowa and Memphis by four games.
Willy Taveras started the winning rally with a leadoff single in the seventh, advanced to second base on an Irving Falu sacrifice bunt. With one out, Johnny Giavotella was intentionally walked to get to Ramirez, who singled to centerfield. In the first game, Brandon Laird, who homered earlier, doubled in Jimmy Parades with two outs in the bottom of the tenth.
The series continues Monday night with Omaha left-hander Everett Teaford making the start against OKC, and former Omaha, right-hander Phillip Humber. Coverage of the game gets underway at 6:45 pm and can be heard locally on 1180 Zone 2 The Deuce and online at omahastormchasers.com.
