SALT LAKE CITY — One day after Omaha ended a five-game losing streak, a late-inning rally by Salt Lake sent the Storm Chasers to a 5-3 defeat on Monday night.
Led by a 3-for-4 performance by designated hitter Dean Anna, the Chasers outhit the Bees 12-8 but fell after giving up a 3-0 lead.
Omaha starter Luke Farrell held Salt Lake scoreless through five innings, and the Chasers led after scoring one run in the fourth and two in the sixth. In the fourth, Raul Mondesi singled and Paulo Orlando doubled before Ramon Torres singled home Mondesi. In the sixth, Orlando doubled and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Ryan O’Hearn’s RBI groundout brought Orlando home. Torres singled in the next at-bat before Anna’s triple brought him home.
But Farrell allowed two runs in the bottom of the sixth and another in the bottom of the seventh, all on RBI singles.
The game was delayed from its 7:40 start by rain for over an hour. The Chasers will try for a series split at 11:35 a.m. on Tuesday.
