The Omaha Royals slammed four home runs on Monday, including two by Jordan Parraz, but lost to Albuquerque. In Burlington, the Bees played shoddy defense that led to eight unearned runs as they lost to Peoria, 12-5. Click inside to read Monday's report.

Editor’s Note: The Wilmington Blue Rocks were off on Monday, and the NW Arkansas Naturals were rained out in Tulsa. Even though the Naturals didn’t play, their magic number for the Texas League’s first half North Division title fell to four, thanks to Springfield’s loss to Arkansas on Monday.

AAA: Albuquerque 8, Omaha 7

L: Everett Teaford (0-1, 13.50)
HR: Jordan Parraz 2 (5), Rick Ankiel (1), Jai Miller (6)

The O-Royals clubbed four home runs but fell short of the Isotopes, 8-7. Jordan Parraz slugged two dingers, and Rick Ankiel and Jai Miller both went yard as well. Alex Gordon went 4-for-5, smashing three doubles, while Kila Ka'aihue finished 1-for-4 with a double and a walk.

Everett Teaford was hit hard Monday in his Triple-A debut, allowing seven runs on eight hits in 4.2 innings of work. Matt Herges relieved him and allowed one run in five hits in 2.1 innings. Chris Hayes followed, throwing a scoreless ninth while striking out one batter.

Omaha plays their second game against Albuquerque on Tuesday night.
