B. Hardy 1 1/3 IP, ER, 2 H, 2 BB, K -- L, 1-1, 2.16 ERA
* Omaha squandered a 4-run 1st as Gaby Hernandez had a fairly bad start. Kila Ka'aihue hit a sac fly in the 1st and Ed Lucas stayed hot with a 3-run homer for his 5th of the season to spot the Royals a 4-0 lead. Omaha loaded the bases with none out in the 3rd but like their big league counterparts couldn't plate a run. Iowa got 2 2-run homers off Hernandez in a 5-run 3rd to take the lead. They added 2 runs in the 6th off Hernandez to make it 7-4. Lucas ripped a 2-run triple in the 8th to cut the lead to 1 and David Lough hit a 1-out solo homer in the 9th to tie it at 7. It was Lough's 7th homer. Blaine Hardy stranded 2 in the 8th and gave up a 1-out walkoff single in the 9th to end it. RP Brian Schlitter got 2 outs for the win to move to 1-1. Starter Jay Jackson allowed 4 ER over 6 IP. C Welington Castillo had 2 hits for Iowa. Omaha is 38-32. Phil Humber starts Wednesday's game 2.

* Mike Moustakas had another good night but Johnny Giavotella had the walkoff hit in the 13th. Eduardo Paulino allowed a run in the 1st and Tulsa added 2 in the 3rd to make it 3-0. Moustakas tied it with one swing in the 3rd with a 3-run homer for his 18th of the season. Manny Pina broke the tie with a solo homer in the 5th for his 6th of the season to make it 4-3. Two errors helped the Drillers tie it in the 6th and then a dry spell ensued for both teams. NWA squandered a bases-loaded 1-out situation in the 12th but put 2 on with 1 out in the 13th. Giavotella hit a 2-out walkoff single to put the first half to rest. NWA finished with their best half ever, 42-28. The teams wrap up the set with the first game of the second half Wednesday. Moustakas was named to the U.S. team in the All-Star Futures Game along with Eric Hosmer. Nice to see 2 Royals involved. I bet Myers is on it in the next couple years. I wonder if Montgomery would have gotten a shot if healthy.
