METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Zephyrs rallied from three deficits to defeat the Omaha Storm Chasers, 7-4 on Sunday afternoon to complete a four-game sweep.

The Z's swept a four-game series at home for the first time since April 2014, also against Omaha, and have won nine of their last 10 games.

The Storm Chasers had leads of 1-0, 3-2 and 4-3, but each time New Orleans rallied. Brady Shoemaker erased Hunter Dozier's second-inning home run with an RBI double in the fourth, and scored on Isaac Galloway's single past a drawn-in infield to put the Zephyrs in front.

Seven different Zephyrs scored the team's seven runs, and six different players collected runs batted in.

Jose Urena allowed three runs and five hits in five innings before three Zephyrs relievers combined to limit Omaha to one run over the final four frames.

The Zephyrs, back within a game of .500 for the first time since May 10, travel to Round Rock to open a four-game set against the Express on Monday.
