Garrett Cooper drove in four runs and Brandon Woodruff shined in his Triple-A debut as the Sky Sox (3-0) used a five-run fourth inning to cruise to an 11-2 victory Saturday over the Omaha Storm Chasers.

After spending the end of 2016 at Double-A Biloxi, Woodruff, Milwaukee's No 7 prospect according to Baseball America, scattered five hits and struck out four batters while allowing a single unearned run in 61/3 innings. Damien Magnifico, Wei-Chung Wang and Tim Dillard closed out the home game with an inning of relief each.

Yadiel Rivera continued his recent tear in the fourth inning, cranking a one-out solo home run just shy of the scoreboard to increase the margin to 4-1. In his past nine at-bats, the shortstop has recorded five hits, including his three-hit night Friday.
