Baseball Briefs: Storm Chasers, Saltdogs, MLB Coming Up

Omaha Storm Chasers

Omaha first baseman Frank Schwindel slashed two more hits, including his Pacific Coast League-best 29thdouble to extend his hit streak to 13, however four Salt Lake Bees hurlers led by starter Ivan Pineyrocombined to quiet the Storm Chasers in a 6-0 shutout victory on Sunday evening at Werner Park.

Pineyro (6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K) earned the win to improve to 5-7 after yielding just three hits over six scoreless frames and retiring each of the final seven batters faced. Jeremy Rhoades (1.0 IP, BB, K),  Eduardo Paredes (1.0 IP, 2 K) and Akeel Morris (1.0 IP, BB, K) joined forces for the final four innings in support of Pineyro, retiring 9 of the final ten batters faced. Omaha starter Jake Kalish (5.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K) suffered the defeat.
