The Omaha Royals were turned away from a victory on Tuesday with a 6-4 loss to Oklahoma. In his first appearance on the year for Omaha, Leo Nunez was brilliant. The skinny right-hander allowed only one run on three hits in his six innings of work. However, Jason Shiell came in for relief, and after throwing a scoreless seventh inning, he allowed five runs in the eighth to give Oklahoma the lead. Mitch Maier went 1-for-4 with a walk on the night. Matt Wright (4-3, 3.76) will get the start on Wednesday as they return home after the 16-game road trip.
The Wichita Wranglers had the day off on Tuesday as part of the break for the Texas League all-star game. Luke Hochevar got the start for the North All-Stars, and went two innings while giving up two runs, but he did strike out three. Chris Lubanski went 1-for-4 with a walk, and Mike Stodolka went 2-for-4 with an RBI.

The Burlington Royals picked up another close victory, scoring two runs in the top of the ninth to win, 5-4. Jake Lane led the offense, going 3-for-4 with a double and his first home run. Brett Amyx was 2-for-4, and so was shortstop Kyle Martin. Hard throwing Bryan Paukovits had his second appearance of the season, and this one wasn't quite as successful. The tall righty allowed three runs in 2.1 innings of work.
The AZL Royals had the day off on Tuesday. They return to action on Wednesday to face the Mariners.
