COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Colorado Springs scored 10 runs in the first inning, as the Sky Sox rolled to an eventual 15-6 victory over the Salt Lake Bees on Monday night.
Eight of the first nine Sky Sox batters reached base, as they eventually sent 14 hitters to the plate in the first inning. Andrew Brown had two hits in the inning, an RBI double and a run-scoring single. All nine members of the Colorado Springs lineup had at least two hits as the Sky Sox had 21 hits in all.
The Sky Sox led 12-0 after two innings, but the Bees cut the deficit in half with one run in the third, three in the fourth and two in the fifth, but they were shut out the rest of the way.
Eric Hurley (7-8), who had not pitched in two weeks, took the loss. He did not get out of the first inning and allowed nine runs, five earned, on seven hits with one walk.
Cory Aldridge led the Bees with two hits and two runs batted in, while Matt Long added a pair of doubles and Efren Navarro chipped in with a pair of singles.
