Storm Chasers lose at Tacoma in extras

Storm Chasers lose at Tacoma in extras

Omaha southpaw Eric Skoglund fired his second consecutive quality start and center fielder Nick Heath recorded two hits, while Tacoma lefty Anthony Misiewicz yielded a lone earned run over six frames and shortstop Kelby Tomlinson scored the game-winning run on a wild pitch as the Rainiers topped the Storm Chasers 3-2 in ten innings on Tuesday evening at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, Washington.

Skoglund (6.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K) for the second time in as many outings spun a quality outing yet did not earn a victory, ultimately receiving a no-decision on Tuesday evening after yielding two earned runs on seven hits in six frames. Relievers Yunior Marte and Jonathan Dziedzic (0.1 IP, 2 BB) joined forces for 2.1 scoreless frames of support, though righty Jake Newberry (1.0 IP, 0 H, R, 0 ER, 2 BB, K) would suffer the defeat. Misiewicz (6.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, ER, BB, 8 K) also did not factor in the decision despite six solid frames, with right-hander Matt Carasiti(1.0 IP, H) earning the win.

Omaha struck first with a two-spot in the fourth. 3B Kelvin Gutierrez slapped a one-out triple to center before coming home when C Nick Dini reached on a fielder’s choice. Dini would eventually come across via SS Jecksson Flores ‘ sacrifice fly, doubling the advantage to two. Tacoma 1B Jordan Pacheco ‘s RBI double and LF John Andreoli ‘s run-scoring single in the fifth, however, evened the contest at 2-2. The draw remained until the extra frame, when Tomlinson came plateward on a wild pitch to give the Rainiers the victory.

Storm Chasers CF Nick Heath (2-5) recorded the first two knocks of his Triple-A career and was the only member of the road side to record a multi-hit effort. DH Jaycob Brugman (2-2, R, 2B, 2 BB), meanwhile, posted a two-hit game while reaching base four times for Tacoma.

The two teams are set to face off in the second game of their three-game series on Wednesday evening in Tacoma. First pitch is scheduled for 9:05pm CT.
