Highlighted by back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the 2nd inning, the Storm Chasers won their third straight game, beating the Round Rock Express, 6-3, at Werner Park Wednesday night.

A scoreless game heading into the bottom half of the second, Ryan O'Hearn got the scoring started for Omaha, launching a solo shot over the bleachers in left.  Then, the very next batter, Jorge Bonifacio, followed suit, hitting back-to-back homers for the Chasers.

Both home runs were part of four-run second inning for Omaha. The Storm Chasers' starter Wednesday evening, Erik Skoglund, retired 14 of 17 batters over five scoreless innings in his Omaha debut.

The Storm Chasers look to clinch a series victory against the Express Thursday night at Werner Park. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
