Kila Ka'aihue has done it again. The Hawaiian sensation went 2-for-4 and crushed his eighth AAA homer of the season in Omaha's 7-3 loss at Oklahoma. That gives him 35 for the season.
The big league Royals fell to the Yankees 3-2 in extra innings.
Class A affiliate Burlington edged Quad Cities 6-4 on Saturday as well. Second rounder Johnny Giavotella finished 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles. Clint Robinson (1B) pounded his 13th and 14th homers of the season while Jason Taylor crushed his 17th in the tough Midwest League.
