Dodgers Lose Again To Sky Sox

Posted: Updated:

Three late runs gave the Colorado Springs Sky Sox a 3-2 come-from-behind win Saturday against the Oklahoma City Dodgers at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The Dodgers (67-47) took a 2-0 lead into the eighth inning as starting pitcher Brandon Beachy held the Sky Sox scoreless and to one hit through seven innings in front of a sellout crowd of 10,576.

Colorado Springs (47-65) scored one run in the eighth inning against Oklahoma City reliever David Huff, then added two more runs in the top of the ninth against Dodgers pitcher Juan Gonzalez.

The Dodgers suffered a fifth straight loss to tie their longest losing skid of the season, as Colorado Springs took a 4-0 lead in their current series.

Saturday marked the fourth time this season Colorado Springs won when trailing the Dodgers after seven innings, and Colorado Springs is the lone team Oklahoma City has lost to when leading after seven frames this season.

Oklahoma City scored first Saturday, taking a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning. Austin Barnes hit a one-out triple, then scored on a sacrifice fly by Kyle Jensen to put the Dodgers in front.

Oklahoma City scored again in similar fashion in the bottom of the sixth inning. Jose Peraza led off with a triple, then scored on a sacrifice fly by Corey Seager for a 2-0 lead.

Beachy, who issued one walk and recorded seven strikeouts, exited the game after seven innings and Huff took the mound for Oklahoma City.

Colorado Springs’ Matt Dominguez led off the top of the eighth with a double and Yadiel Rivera followed with a single. Kyle Wren then hit a RBI single to left field to end the shutout and cut Oklahoma City’s lead to 2-1.

Gonzalez entered the game to pitch for Oklahoma City in the top of the ninth inning having not been scored upon in 19 of his previous 20 outings, including the last 17 straight.

Pete Orr hit a one-out double and Nevin Ashley followed with a triple to bring home Orr and knot the game, 2-2. Dominguez then hit a sacrifice fly to score Ashley and put Colorado Springs in front, 3-2.

Gonzalez (1-1) was charged with his first blown save and first loss of the season.

Colorado Springs reliever Tim Dillard (3-2) entered the game in the eighth inning and got the win. Jaye Chapman earned his 10th save of the season.

Iowa defeated Omaha, 4-1, Saturday to move into second place in the American Northern Division, and trails the first-place Dodgers by four games. Omaha dropped to third place and sits 4.5 games behind Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers conclude their 10-game homestand and five-game series against the Sky Sox at 6:05 p.m. Sunday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Tomorrow is a Chaparral Energy Family Sunday filled with family fun activities, such as player autographs before the game and kids can run the bases after the game.
