Round Rock drops series opener to Omaha


The Omaha Storm Chasers pounded out 15 hits on the way to defeating the Round Rock Express 9-1 in the series opener in Omaha, Neb. on Tuesday night.

Jorge Bonifacio had a double, a triple and four runs batted in while Omaha starter Jonathan Dziedzic didn’t allow a run to lead the Storm Chasers.

Dziedic (1-1) earned the win after allowing no runs on six hits through 5 2/3 innings. He struck out five and didn’t give up a walk.

The only run Omaha (2-3) allowed was in the seventh inning after building a nine-run lead.

Luis Marte grounded out and Travis Snider was allowed to score for Round Rock’s only run.

Ramon Torres hit a solo home run to give Omaha an early lead in the bottom of the first.

With the score 2-0, the Storm Chasers put up four runs in the third inning to take full control of the contest.

Bonifacio hit a bases-clearing double before Cam Gallagher drove Bonifacio home with an RBI single to make it 6-0.

Bubba Starling and Dean Anna each had RBI singles in the fifth before Whit Merrifield homered in the next inning to make it 9-0.

Tyler Wagner (0-1) had a start to forget as the Express pitcher allowed eight runs, all earned, on 11 hits through 4 1/3 innings. He struck out one and walked two.

Will Middlebrooks had the only extra-base hit for the Express (3-3) and Ronald Guzman had the only multi-hit game for Round Rock. Guzman was 2 for 4 on the night.

The teams will meet again on Wednesday at 6:35 p.m. in Omaha for the second contest of the four-game series.

Texas still searching for 2018 options along the defensive line

Five of Texas’ 11 commitments for the 2018 class play defense. Byron Hobbs and Ayodele Adeoye are linebackers while B.J. Foster, Caden Sterns and DeMarvion Overshown highlight the safety position. The Longhorns are expected to sign around 20 to 22 players, depending on continued attrition. That means Texas is halfway done. The five defensive...
