RC Organizational Report: May 23

Omaha was rained out on Wednesday, and the Wranglers were shut out by the Rangers' Eric Hurley. However, both the Burlington Bees and Wilmington Blue Rocks won their games behind some impressive performances by key prospects. RC recaps all of the day's minor league action inside.



The Omaha Royals were rained out on Wednesday in their game against Oklahoma. Things don't look promising for Thursday either, as it's expected to rain all day in eastern Nebraska.

For Royals fans, there wasn't much to see here tonight. Luke Hochevar struggled again, and even though he allowed only three earned runs, his own throwing error accounted for a couple of runs. The lone bright spot here was Irving Falu's 2-for-4 night to continue his recent hot streak.
