Hochevar Tagged with Loss in Omaha

Luke Hochevar got his first start for the Omaha Royals last night as the Royals played host to Albuquerque. Hochevar gave up three earned runs on five hits and two walks in 5.2 innings. His nemesis was the long ball. He gave up two home runs, which led to all three earned runs he gave up. Here's a link to a story in the Omaha World Herald about the game.

Omaha went on to lose 7-6. They certainly didn't have any problems getting hits or scoring runs though. Mitch Maier was 3-for-5 with an RBI at the top of the lineup. Shane Costa hit third and was 2-for-4 with 2 RBI and a walk. Ryan Shealy was 2-for-4 with 2 RBI, a walk, and a home run. Damon Hollins was 1-for-4 with 2 RBI. And Chris Lubanski was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Here's a link to the box score.

Joe Nelson, who is now in the Marlins organization, came back to haunt the O. Royals. He pitched the final 1.2 innings to pick up his first save of the season.
