PAPILLION, Neb. — Three Omaha pitchers combined on a five-hitter and a Salt Lake error led to a pair of unearned runs, as the Storm Chasers defeated the Bees 4-2 on Thursday night.

The game was tied when Omaha's Clint Robinson led off the fourth with a single.

Bees' second baseman Matt Long had Tony Abreu's ground ball squirt under his glove for an error and two outs later, both runners scored on consecutive singles by Kevin Kouzmanoff and Anthony Seratelli to give the Storm Chasers the lead.

Matt Shoemaker (3-4) worked all eight innings and allowed just four runs, two earned, on eight hits with one strikeout and no walks.

Shoemaker closed out the game by retiring the last 12 batters he faced.

Cory Aldridge led the Bees with two hits, including a solo home run.
