New Orleans runs in the eighth and nine innings cost Brandon Hynick his 10th win of the season and sent the Sky Sox to a 3-2 defeat Friday in the opener of a four-game road series.

Ryan Speier, added to the Colorado Springs roster earlier in the day, gave up the tying run in the eighth inning on back-to-back doubles from Gaby Sanchez and Jon Lindsey.

Scott Munter (4-5) surrendered the winning run in the ninth when a leadoff walk came around to score on John Raynor’s single.

Hynick, who lowered his team-leading ERA to 3.52 by giving up one run in six innings, settled for yet another no-decision. He is 2-0 over his past six starts despite a 2.43 ERA during the same span.

Hynick left Friday’s game with a 2-1 lead.

Kenny Perez and Jonathan Herrera paced the Sky Sox offense with a pair of hits each, while Matt Miller drove in his team-leading 84th run.

Jay Buente (4-0) took the win after throwing a scoreless ninth.

The loss did not cost Colorado Springs in the standings as Salt Lake fell victim to a 5-0 no-hitter from Oklahoma City pitcher Luis Mendoza. The Bees remain 31/2 games behind the Sky Sox in the Pacific Coast League Pacific North standings.

Note
In addition to Speier, the Sky Sox added pitcher Jhoulys Chacin to the roster. Veteran reliever Mike Timlin was released.
