Omaha Royals Win 3-1

The Omaha Royals took on the Oklahoma City RedHawks this afternoon in Omaha. I received my credentials for the Omaha Royals 2009 season recently and I made a trip out to Rosenblatt Stadium to line up a couple of player interviews for a publication I work for. While I was there I took quite a few pictures on the field and from the press box (see below).

Brandon Duckworth got the start for Omaha. He stuggled with his command, giving up five walks in five innings on 95 pitches. But he only gave up one earned run. When guys got on base, he was able to wiggle off the hook.

Ryan Shealy drove in a run in the second inning with a double. Irving Falu doubled in Shealy to give the Royals a 2-1 lead after two innings. Then in the fifth inning, Tommy Murphy reached on a error by the center fielder and J.R. House singled Murphy in to give Omaha a 3-1 lead and the score held up.

Ramon Colon looked good in the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings--giving up just two hits, no runs, and striking out four. Carlos Rosa came into the game with a 3-1 lead heading into the ninth and after giving up a double and then a wild pitch, he got the save.

Here's a video I shot of Kila Ka'aihue's at bat against Warner Madrigal in the eighth inning. Ka'aihue fouled a pitch off his foot early in the at bat, but then came back to double to left center.

Now for the pics. Travis Metcalf warms up before the game:
