The Smokies win. Iowa’s winning streak is snapped.
The Iowa Cubs were soaked by the Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals), 3-2, snapping the I-Cubs five-game winning streak.
Preston Morrison relieved Ryan in the sixth inning and took the loss after he gave up a three-run home run to Paulo Orlando in the seventh inning. The final line on Morrison was three runs on four hits over two innings. Morrison struck out two and did not walk anyone.
One additional note on the pitching:

However, you do have to wonder why the Cubs felt a need to reshuffle the I-Cubs rotation. Maybe nothing is imminent, but they’re just planning ahead.
