Chasers Shut out Express 6-0 in 2019 Finale
Omaha second baseman Jimmy Govern and shortstop Taylor Featherston combined for five hits, including back-to-back home runs, and drove in four runs, while five Storm Chasers pitches combined for a four-hit shutout in a 6-0 victory in their 2019 season finale on Monday afternoon at Werner Park.
Omaha LF Rudy Martin mashed a solo big fly to lead off the order in the last of the first, with RF Erick Mejia adding an RBI double to grab an early 2-0 advantage. After adding a single tally in the third, Featherston and Govern hit back-to-back jacks to extend the margin to six.
Govern (3-4, R, HR, RBI) recorded a game-high three hits, with Featherston (2-4, R, HR, 3 RBI) and CF Jecksson Flores (2-3, R, 2 BB) adding multi-hit efforts. Govern's roundtripper was his second in as many games for Omaha, and in six games with the Storm Chasers hit .333 (7-21) with three runs, one double, two homers and five RBI.
Omaha starter Ofreidy Gomez (5.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, K) fired the first four frames of the shutout win, with relievers Jonathan Dziedzic (2.0 IP, H), Richard Lovelady (1.0 IP, K), Yunior Marte (1.0 IP, H, 2 K) and Andres Machado (1.0 IP) combining to yield two hits over the final five innings. Dziedzic earned the victory, while Round Rock righty Brendan McCurry (1.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, K) suffered the defeat.
The Storm Chasers are scheduled to begin their 2020 campaign on the road on Thursday, April 9 at Memphis. Following that five-game set, Omaha is slated to start the tenth season at Werner Park on Tuesday, April 14 with a seven-game homestand featuring the Round Rock Express and San Antonio Missions.
Ticket packages for the 2020 season, including full-season, Chasers Blue Book and Flex Plans, are now available and start at just $99. Ticket packages can be purchased by calling the Werner Park Ticket Office at (402) 738-5100.
