Chasers score after wild pitch and sacrifice, and former Husker Michael Mariot closes 11-inning win

FRESNO, Calif. — A sacrifice fly from Ramon Torres in the 11th inning gave Omaha a 5-4 win over Fresno on Sunday night.

After both teams scored a run in the 10th, the Storm Chasers had runners at first and second with one out and Torres at the plate. A wild pitch moved the runners up a base, then Torres flew out to center to bring home Terrance Gore.

Former Husker Michael Mariot pitched a scoreless 11th to earn his third save. The Omaha bullpen didn’t allow an earned run in five innings.

Nicky Lopez, who had an RBI triple in the 10th, Cam Gallagher and Elier Hernandez each had two hits for the Chasers. Donnie Dewees added a two-run homer in the fifth inning.

The Chasers and Fresno wrap up their four-game series at 9:05 p.m. Monday.
