Fernando Perez had two hits, scored four runs and stole a base in Iowa’s 9-8 come from behind victory over Omaha on Sunday. Casey Coleman gave up two runs, one earned, on one hit and two walks over six innings, striking out seven, but did not get a decision. Marcos Mateo picked up the win in relief.
