Triple-A Omaha lost to Nashville, 3-1. The Storm Chasers out-hit the Sounds, 8-5.
Dillon Gee made his first start for the Storm Chasers and took the loss. He allowed all three runs on four hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four. Joe Beimel made his debut after signing with the KC Royals last week. He walked two in a scoreless inning of relief. Benino Pruneda struck out four in two scoreless innings.
Ramon Torres and Balbino Fuenmayor had two hits in the loss. Irving Falu collected his first hit.
Twitter was abuzz when Travis Snider was taken out of the game and headed to the lockerroom carrying his bags. With the possibility of Cheslor Cuthbert going on the DL (he was hit on the elbow on a potential double play), many thought Snider would be the roster move. However, Snider was back in the Omaha dugout, as the Royals revealed that Cuthbert could be able to play tomorrow (the ball just hit the funny bone).
*Now we know why catcher Luis Villegas was added to the roster from Wilmington. Fellow catcher Zane Evans was placed on the DL (for the second time this season). He has not played since Friday.
Double-A NW Arkansas enjoyed their day off before heading out on the road for nine games in eight days beginning Tuesday with a doubleheader in Tulsa.

Colin Rodgers made his first start since being activated from the DL on May 26th. He allowed five runs on five hits and three walks over five innings. Rodgers faced the minimum over his final three innings. Matt Tenuta allowed a run on three hits over three innings of relief. He struck out three.
Low-A Lexington lost their series opener in Lakewood, 9-5.
The Legends collected eight hits, but three hits each came from the top two in the order (DJ Burt and Roman Collins). Samir Duenez drove in three runs to give him 42 RBIs on the season. He also stole his 12th base.
Outfielder Anderson Miller returned from wrist surgery and went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts. He also threw a runner out at home from right field.
