Turnabout is supposedly fair play, so the Colorado Springs Sky Sox might have to accept that after losing the second game of a doubleheader late Friday to host Tucson 5-4 in extra innings, eight in this case in what was supposed to be a seven-inning game late Friday.
The Colorado Springs Sky Sox went to an extra (eighth) inning in the opener of the twinbill to win 3-2.
In the opener, Matt McBride doubled for his third hit, advanced on a Brendan Harris bunt and scored on a Brandon Wood RBI fielder’s choice.
The Sky Sox got a home run by Charlie Culberson among his two hits and received two hits and an RBI by Wilkin Castillo.
Rob Scahill went five innings, allowing two runs. Jason Bergmann picked up the victory with two innings of scoreless relief.
In the nightcap, Chad Tracy had all four Sox RBIs, including a three-run homer that put Colorado Springs ahead 4-2 in the sixth. Tucson, however, scored two in the sixth to tie it and won in the eight.
Omir Santos and Hernan Iribarren joined Tracy with two hits each for the Sox in the game.
