METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy keeps repeating “There is no place like home.” For the Zephyrs that just isn't the case in 2016.

Three games into their home stand, and the Z's have yet to pick up a home win. They've also lost five in a row total, and have scored a total of five runs in the last four contests.

Sunday the Omaha Storm Chasers held off the New Orleans, 3-2. The big play came courtesy of Cheslor Cuthbert, who led off the sixth inning with a home run to snap a tie game.

The Zephyrs look to avoid the series sweep in Monday's 11 a.m. finale.
