TACOMA — The Omaha Royals held the Tacoma Rainiers to two hits for a 6-0 Pacific Coast league win last night.


Omaha starter Danny Tamayo was perfect through six innings. However, his chance for a perfect game ended in the bottom of the seventh when he walked Chris Snelling, recently returned from the Mariners. Tamayo’s chance at a no-hitter ended two batters later, as Greg Dobbs singled. Tamayo left in the ninth with one out.


The Royals (50-60) took the lead for good in the fourth inning, when they scored three runs.


Scott Atchison took the loss for the Rainiers (60-49). Atchison gave up four earned runs off seven hits in 4-1/3 innings.
