Brown powers Storm; Hunt hammers two

Ben Johnson performed well from the leadoff spot. Of not for Colt Morton, the BayBears would have been no-hit. Lake Elsinore is still unsure of its playoff fate, despite a seven-run outburst in 11 on the strength of a Tim Brown double and a Sean Kazmar homer. Nathan Culp has a nice tuneup for the playoff run. Jeremy Hunt propels Eugene to victory over a foe that had won ten games without a loss.
