Dodgers Top Omaha

Posted: Updated:
OMAHA, Nebraska -

Four Oklahoma City Dodgers held the Omaha Storm Chasers to one run and five hits, and two early runs by the Dodgers offense proved to be enough in a 2-1 win at Werner Park Friday night.

The Dodgers (21-7) have won four of their first five meetings against Omaha (15-13), with each contest decided by one or two runs. With the win, the Dodgers improved to 10-3 on the road and have now won seven straight series openers.

The Dodgers went in front 1-0 in the second inning. Corey Seager drew a leadoff walk and eventually scored on a two-out RBI single by Darwin Barney to give OKC the early lead.

Seager scored again the fourth to make it 2-0. He tripled with one out, and after an intentional walk to Andy Wilkins, Seager scored when Kyle Jensen hit into a fielder's choice.

The Storm Chasers threatened in both the second and fourth innings, loading the bases each time with two outs. Dodgers pitcher Zach Lee thwarted each rally, keeping the Omaha off the board.

Lee (4-2) turned in five scoreless innings. He allowed just one hit, but tied a career high with five walks and finished with three strikeouts. In two career starts at Werner Park, Lee has thrown 12 scoreless frames while allowing just four hits.

Ramon Troncoso followed Lee and kept Omaha scoreless over the sixth and seventh, coaxing a double play to end each inning.

Still trailing 2-0 in the eighth, Omaha was able to cut OKC's lead down to one on a RBI bloop double with two outs by Lane Adams. With runners at second and third, Josh Ravin got Jose Martinez to ground out to end the inning and keep OKC in front.

David Aardsma took over on the mound in the ninth and worked around a one-out single by Moises Sierra to close out the game, as Aardsma picked up his league-leading ninth save.

Aaron Brooks took the loss for Omaha. Brooks (2-3) allowed two runs and four hits over six innings, with two walks and a season-high nine strikeouts.

Brooks and Omaha reliever Scott Alexander combined to retire 16 of the final 17 Dodgers hitters and faced the minimum over the final five innings.
