Whooooa. Nelson Figueroa did what Nelson Figueroa does, and the RedHawks get swept at home to Omaha (somewhere in middle America), 13-2.

Son of a gun. Amazingly, Lancaster actually had a lead in this one - however brief (1-0). Bakersfield had a 17-3 lead at the end of the fifth on their way to a 20-7 win over the JetHawks.
