Rey Fuentes slapped a walk-off single to right in the bottom of the tenth inning as the Omaha Storm Chasers beat the Colorado Springs Sky Sox 6-5 in Werner Park.
The Fuentes single scored Dusty Coleman with the game winner.
“If you can put the bat on the ball you have a chance with a runner at second and he is a plus runner so you know he is going to have a good chance to score on that”, said Omaha manager Brian Poldberg. “Rey got a good pitch and hit a ground ball through the hole so it was nice to get at that point.”
The Storm Chasers rallied from an early 5-0 deficit and tied the game in the bottom of the eighth inning after a one hour and 12 minute rain delay as they improve to 12-6.
