Colorado Sky Sox 10 Omaha Storm Chasers 7

The Sky Sox got to new reliever Juan Gutierrez to knock down the Chasers at home for the fourth consecutive day.  A 5-5 game through seven innings Gutierrez first relief appearance didn’t go well as the former D-Backs closer gave up three doubles, a single and a walk to allow five to cross the plate.  Omaha would score a pair in the bottom of the 9th and load the bases but Clint Robinson would fly out to right field to end the threat and the game.  Wil Myers tough 2nd half continued with the outfielder going 0 for 4 with a walk lowering his batting average to just .214 in the 25 games since the break.

NW Arkansas Naturals 4 Arkansas Travelers 0

I don’t know what happened to Cuban signee Noel Arguelles on this night but lets hope its not a fluke.  The left-hander hurled seven innings of two hit ball striking out five against just one walk while attacking the zone with 59 strikes among his 87 pitches.  The Naturals offense backed up Arguelles with some extra base power from Carlo Testa and Brian Fletcher as the two left the yard with solo home runs and Testa scored in the 3rd following a leadoff double.  Those runs were plenty for Noel who teamed with reliever Ethan Hollingsworth to finish off a shutout earning Arguelles just his 3rd win in 15 decisions.

Kane County Cougars 5 Cedar Rapids Kernals 4

The Cougars didn’t wait as long as Sunday but they did have to use a comeback to finish off a 5-4 win for the second game in a row.  Starter Bryan Brickhouse gave up four runs (3 ER) in his 5.1 innings putting his team down early while allowing 7 hits and a walk in his time.  Trailing 4-1 heading into the bottom of the with a pair of walks got things started for the Cougars.  Tim Ferguson drove one in with a single and was quickly brought home on Kevin David’s two run triple to tie the game.  The Kernals went to the bullpen but it wouldn’t help much after their reliever allowed David to come home when he uncorked a wild pitch.  With the lead former Kane starters turned relievers Edwin Carl and Kellen Moen finished off the final three innings to secure the win.

Burlington Royals 5 Pulaski 3

The Royals won another game Monday earning Christian Binford his first career win in the process.  The tall right-hander finished off six innings allowing three runs to earn that win giving up all three runs in the final inning that he worked.  Overall he gave up six hits while not allowing a free pass and striking out four in his time.  Binford was given the lead with a pair of RBI by his battery mate Cam Gallagher, one of which came on his third home run of the season, a two run single by Bubba Starling and a run scoring single from Fred Ford.  The Royals will play their first of four doubleheaders over the next fifteen days in an attempt to make up for the week of rainouts they endured in July.  The current lead in the division stands at 4.5 with 31 games to play, all of which is scheduled for August.

About The Author

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that.I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.
