OKLAHOMA CITY – The Omaha Storm Chasers closed out the series against Oklahoma City with a four game sweep of the Redhawks thanks to Tuesday's 13-2 win.

The Redhawks couldn't compete with the Storm Chasers from the plate, as Omaha produced 17 hits on the night to OKC's seven.

The game was scoreless until the fourth when Omaha's David Lough belted a lead-off home run that triggered a five-run rally. After a sacrifice fly by Irving Falu, Lance Zawadzki smacked a triple to score two runs and take the 5-0 lead.

Oklahoma City got on the board in the bottom of the fourth when Anderson Hernandez scored from third off a ground out by Robinson Cancel.

Omaha continued the hitting and scoring in the fifth. Kila Ka'aihue smashed a three-run homer to left to put the Storm Chasers up 8-1.

In the sixth, Omaha added for more runs thanks to a Lorenzo Cain bases loaded walk, Clint Robinson sacrifice fly and Salvador Perez two-run single for a 12-1 advantage. The Storm Chasers made it 13-1 with a seventh inning RBI single from Cain.

Oklahoma City added its only other run in the eighth inning off a two-out solo home run by Collin Delome for a 13-2 final score.

Juan Abreu made his organization debut, after being acquired from a recent Astros trade. Abreu dealt two innings with four hits, one earned run, one walk and one strikeout.

Luis Mendoza picked up the win for Omaha, his eighth of the year, after pitching six innings allowing one run on four hits and striking out six.

The RedHawks now go on the road to face Las Vegas at 9:05 CST Wednesday.
