Royals on the Farm 7/1

AAA: Omaha's offense sputtered again in a 3-1 loss to Albuquerque Friday to make it 4 Ls in a row. Albuquerque took a 1-0 lead in the 4th but Omaha tied it that inning on an RBI single by 3B Chris Truby but the O-Royals could get no more off Isotopes pitchers as Albuquerque took advantage of 2 errors to score runs in the 5th and 7th to win. SP Kyle Snyder went 5 innings in his fourth rehab start and allowed 2 R (1 ER) on 6 hits and a walk with 2 Ks to make his ERA 1.61. RP Matt Ford pitched 2/3 of an inning and allowed 1 hit and 2 BB to drop his ERA to 1.59. RP Dennis Tankersley went 1 1/3 IP and allowed 1 ER on 2 hits and a BB with a K to make his ERA 4.87. RP Shane Nance pitched an inning and K'd 2 to drop his ERA to 3.72. RP Santiago Ramirez also pitched an inning and walked 1 to drop his ERA to 6.26. C Paul Phillips was 3-4 with 2 doubles to up his BA to .284; Truby was 2-4 with a double and RBI to improve to .272; LF Cory Aldridge was 0-3 to drop to .355.

Springfield scored again in the 3rd to take a 6-2 lead but wouldn't get a hit after the 4th. Wichita scored 1 in the 4th on an RBI ground out by 2B Brett Groves and tied it in the 6th with 3 runs on a 2-run double by CF Mitch Maier and an RBI single by SS Donnie Murphy.

The Mavs took the lead with 4 in the 6th on a 3-run homer by CF Alan Moye (his 11th) and an RBI single by 2B Walter Sevilla. The Storm scored 3 in the 8th and 9th, tho, to take the win. SP Billy Buckner went 5 innings and allowed 5 R (3 ER) on 10 hits and a BB with 5 Ks to make his ERA 4.28. RP Devon Lowery went 2 innings and allowed 1 hit and 2 BB with a K to keep a 0.00 ERA.

LF Billy Butler was 1-4 to drop to .359; 1B Kila Kaaihue was 1-4 to drop to .319; Lubanski was 2-3 with a BB, double, RBI and 2 RS to improve to .259; and PH Brandon Powell was 0-1 to drop to .300.
