Omaha struggled to get the bats going Wednesday, scoring just two runs on three hits against former Royals farmhand Billy Buckner in the O-Royals' 4-2 defeat. Alex Gordon went 1-for-2 with a double and two walks, but singles by Marc Maddox and David Lough were the only other hits for Omaha.

O-Royals starter Bryan Bullington scattered seven hits and two walks across seven innings while allowing two runs. Luis Mendoza relieved him and was only able to get two outs in the eighth, surrendering two runs on four hits while getting tagged with his second loss of the season.

Omaha plays the third game of its four-game series Thursday night against the Aces.
