David Lough was 4-for-5 on Wednesday

Behind a 13-hit attack, the Omaha Royals on Wednesday won their fourth straight with an 8-1 victory over Colorado Springs. David Lough finished 4-for-5 and pushed his batting average up to .281. Unfortunately, the O-Royals were the system's only winner, as Wilmington and NW Arkansas lost despite strong efforts from their starters, and Burlington was swept in a doubleheader.

Despite pitching well, John Lamb suffered his first loss as a Blue Rock, allowing three runs in six innings in Wilmington's 4-1 loss to the Frederick Keys. Only one of the runs was earned, as errors by Juan Rivera and Rey Navarro lead to a pair of unearned runs.
