It was a happy homecoming for Johnny Giavotella, who hit a three-run home run Thursday as part of a three-hit night, but Class AAA Omaha lost 12-8 at New Orleans.
A pair of pitchers with major-league experience had a rough night for the Storm Chasers. Starter Brett Tomko gave up eight runs on nine hits in 3 1/3 innings. He walked two, but struck out three. Reliever P.J. Walters allowed four runs on five hits and two walks, while recording just two outs in the sixth inning.
The Storm Chasers were down 12-3, but scored twice in the seventh and Giavotella added his first homer of the season in the eighth. Giavotella, who played third base on Thursday, went to Jesuit High School in New Orleans and attended the University of New Orleans.
