The Storm Chasers posted eight runs on eight hits and an error in the second inning to quickly put the game out of reach. Clint Robinson doubled in a run in his first at-bat of the frame and singled home another in his second turn, as 12 batters came to the plate in Omaha's biggest scoring inning of the season. Max Ramirez drove in a run with a base hit and scored on Maier's round-tripper before Johnny Giavotella singled in a pair and then scored on a wild pitch to finish the rally. Tucson starter Colt Hynes was tagged with the loss after allowing five earned runs on nine hits while recording only five outs.
The onslaught continued in the next inning, as the visitors plated seven runs, all with two outs. Christian Colon and Giavotella has RBI hits prior to Myers slamming a three-run homer off Chris Franklin, who had taken over on the second pitch of the at-bat after Alexis Lara was ejected for throwing behind the 21-year-old outfielder. Robinson then followed with a triple and scored when Lough launched his long ball to make it 15-0.
Robinson finished with five hits and missed hitting for the cycle by a home run, while Myers also tallied five hits and was a triple away from the cycle. Irving Falu, Colon, Giavotella and Jason Bourgeois chipped in with four hits apiece, as every starter collected at least two safeties in helping the Chasers produce the most hits in a game for any team in the league this season and the most for any team in the PCL since 2004.
Doug Davis was the beneficiary of the outburst, as he lasted six innings to grab his seventh win. The veteran southpaw yielded three runs on seven hits and a walk before Blaine Hardy, Roman Colon and Vin Mazzaro each tossed a scoreless inning in relief.
