The Omaha Storm Chasers were the Royals minor league system's only winner on Tuesday, claiming a 7-5 victory over Albuquerque thanks largely to key home runs by Eric Hosmer and Clint Robinson. Meanwhile, the NW Arkansas Naturals fell to Springfield, while the Wilmington and Kane County offenses managed just four hits apiece in lopsided losses.
