Omaha rapped out 14 hits to romp to a 9-1 win over the RedHawks Tuesday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in a game that started 1 hour, 29 minutes late because of a rain delay.

Carlos Peguero and catcher Francisco Pena, the Storm Chasers’ No. 7 and 8 hitters, combined for five RBIs and scored three runs. Paulo Orlando stroked a two-run triple and later scored in Omaha’s three-run sixth.

Oklahoma City starter Nick Tropeano (2-4) surrendered four runs, but only two were earned. Reliever Bobby Doran gave up five runs on seven hits and two walks.

Former major league veteran Brett Tomko gave up one run on five hits to improve to 3-3. The RedHawks’ only run came in the second on a bases-loaded walk.

SINGLETON CREATING INTERNET BUZZ

RedHawks first baseman Jon Singleton is among the Pacific Coast League leaders in home runs (13) and RBIs (40). Internet rumors suggest Singleton is close to a promotion to the majors and a hot pick-up in fantasy baseball.
