Brian Fletcher drove in the game-winning run for the second straight day as the Omaha Storm Chasers came back to beat Memphis, 5-2, Sunday night in the third meeting of this five-game series at AutoZone Park. The Storm Chasers have won the first three games of the series to climb back over the .500 mark to 65-64 and extend their lead over the Redbirds in the American Conference North Division to five games with 15 remaining in the regular season.
Memphis broke through with a pair of runs in the third inning on a two-out, two-run single by Brock Peterson off of Kansas City Royals right-hander Felipe Paulino, making his third rehabilitation start with the Storm Chasers. Omaha responded and sent 11 batters to the plate while erupting for five runs in the fifth to take the lead for good.
The series continues Monday night with Omaha right-hander Yordano Ventura taking the hill against Memphis southpaw Nick Greenwood.
