Dodgers Open Series With Win Against Sky Sox

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado -

The Oklahoma City Dodgers scored three runs in the sixth inning to break a tie and went on to defeat the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, 5-2, in a game that was called in the top of the seventh inning due to rain Monday night at Security Service Field.

The Dodgers (42-21) have now won seven straight games and have won 10 of their last 12 road contests.

The Sky Sox (25-37) took the lead in the second inning. Back-to-back singles with one out put runners at the corners for Chris Nelson. Nelson sent a grounder to third base in what appeared could be an inning-ending double play. Although the Dodgers got the force out at second base, Buck Britton's throw to first base drew Andy Wilkins off the bag, resulting in Nelson being safe and the runner scoring from third.

The Dodgers scored twice and took their first lead in the fourth inning. Austin Barnes delivered a RBI double to tie the game, and Britton followed with a RBI groundout to make it 2-1.

After having none on and two out in the fifth, the Sky Sox rallied to tie the game. Yadiel Rivera singled on a 0-2 pitch, and Elian Herrera stepped up next and hit a RBI double to deep right field to knot the score.

OKC went back in front during the team's next at-bat. The Dodgers started off the inning with three straight hits, including a go-ahead, two-run single by Barnes. Later in the inning Scott Schebler hit a RBI triple out to deep center field to make it 5-2.

With a runner at first base and one out in the top of the seventh inning, heavy rain started to fall at Security Service Field, as the game entered a rain delay. After approximately one hour, the game was officially called.

Eric Surkamp turned in his first quality start and picked up his second consecutive win. Surkamp (2-2) tossed a season-high six innings and allowed two runs and seven hits. He finished with seven strikeouts and one walk, and was credited with the fifth complete game of his career.

Josh Roenicke cruised through the first three innings, but ultimately allowed five runs and nine hits over six innings and ended up with the loss. Roenicke (4-3) had three strikeouts and did not allow a walk.

The Dodgers continue their series against the Sky Sox Tuesday night at 8:05 p.m. Central time.
