Omaha Storm Chasers Fall to Nashville, Losing First Series of 2024

Omaha, NE – The Omaha Storm Chasers encountered a challenging series finale against the Nashville Sounds, culminating in a 7-3 defeat at First Horizon Park this Sunday. This loss marked their first series defeat of the 2024 season, with the Sounds taking the series 4-2.

The game began unfavorably for Omaha as the Sounds took an early lead, scoring in each of the first three innings. A sacrifice fly put Nashville on the board in the second, followed by Chavez Young and Tyler Black hitting consecutive home runs in the third to extend the lead to 3-0.

Omaha’s starting pitcher, Jonah Dipoto, making his first professional start, managed a strong beginning by retiring the side in the first inning. However, he struggled to maintain control as the game progressed, eventually being pulled with two outs in the third inning after allowing three runs.

The Storm Chasers showed resilience in the middle innings, clawing back into the game with a run in each of the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings. Nate Eaton and Devin Mann teamed up to cut the deficit, followed by John Rave and Nick Pratto adding crucial hits to bring Omaha closer to tying the game. Brian O’Keefe delivered a game-tying single in the sixth, leveling the score at 3-3.

However, the Sounds reclaimed the lead in the seventh inning, exploiting Omaha’s bullpen vulnerabilities. Major League rehabber Jake Brentz, in his 2024 debut, struggled significantly, walking three and hitting a batter without recording an out. Although Sam Long managed to prevent further damage in the seventh, he conceded a crucial two-run single in the eighth, pushing Nashville’s lead to 7-3.

The final innings saw no comeback from the Storm Chasers, as Nashville’s bullpen effectively shut down Omaha’s lineup, retiring the last 10 batters to secure the victory.

After a day off on Monday, the Storm Chasers look to regroup as they host the Indianapolis Indians at Werner Park for a six-game series starting Tuesday at 6:05 p.m. CT. This upcoming series presents an opportunity for Omaha to bounce back and regain their competitive form in the early stages of the season.
