• Box Score: Omaha 11, Round Rock 5
* * *
Salvador Perez, rehabbing in Omaha from a torn meniscus in his left knee, went 5 for 5 Friday night to lead the Storm Chasers to 21 hits and an 11-5 win over Round Rock at Werner Park.
Perez, who hit .331 for the Kansas City Royals as a rookie last season, scored four runs Friday and drove in another on his five singles. Perez is now 7 for 9 in his two games in Omaha.
Omaha (37-25) fell behind 2-0 in the second inning but tied it in the bottom half on an Anthony Seratelli homer, his 10th of the year.
Round Rock scored again in the top of the third to make it 3-2, but the Chasers responded with a Chris Getz triple to score Derrick Robinson and a Wil Myers single to score Getz, making the score 4-3. Omaha wouldn’t trail again.
The Chasers added one run in the fourth, two in the fifth, two in the sixth and two in the eighth to pull away as nine Omaha batters had multiple hits — including three each by Tony Abreu and Irving Falu, who had four RBIs as well. The Express added their final two runs in the sixth.
Jonathan Sanchez, also in Omaha on a rehab assignment, got the start for the Storm Chasers. He pitched five innings, allowing three runs off five hits. He struck out five but allowed two of the three Round Rock homers.
Doug Davis pitched three innings of relief for Omaha and Jeremy Jeffress closed the game with a hitless ninth.
Julio Borbon led Round Rock with a two-run homer in the second inning, his sixth of year, and Leonys Martin added a solo shot in the third. Tommy Mendonca hit the third Express homer, a two-run shot in the sixth.
Round Rock starter Greg Reynolds gave up seven runs on 14 hits in five innings. His two relievers, Mark Hamburger and Johan Yan, combined to allow seven hits and four runs.
The Chasers have won the first two games of the four-game series with Round Rock, improving to 6-4 on their current homestand.
Game three will be at 7:05 p.m. Saturday at Werner Park.
