O’Hearn’s single leads Omaha to win over Round Rock


Ryan O’Hearn hit a run-scoring single in the fifth inning, leading the Omaha Storm Chasers to a 5-3 win over the Round Rock Express on Thursday at Dell Diamond.

Yender Caramo got Travis Snider to ground out with a runner on first to end the game for his first save of the season.

The single by O’Hearn, part of a two-run inning, gave the Storm Chasers a 3-2 lead before Dean Anna scored on a pickoff later in the inning.

The Express cut into the deficit in the sixth inning when Cesar Puello hit a solo home run.

The Storm Chasers (8-6) tacked on another run in the ninth when O’Hearn hit an RBI double, bringing home Billy Burns. O’Hearn finished the night 2 for 5.

Corey Toups homered and doubled, scoring two runs for Omaha. He was 2 for 3 on the night.

Luke Farrell (2-1) got the win in relief while Round Rock starter Eddie Gamboa (1-1) took the loss in the Pacific Coast League game.

For the Express, Luis Marte doubled and singled twice. He was 3 for 4 on the night as the only Express player to have more than one hit.

Round Rock actually led 2-0 before the Storm Chasers tied the game with a two-run third inning. Doug Bernier’s solo homer in the first inning was followed by an RBI single by Patrick Cantwell in the second.

With the win, Omaha improved to 5-2 against Round Rock this season. The Express fell to 7-8 overall and hope to earn a series split on Friday night at Dell Diamond.
