Eddie Butler struggled in his Pacific Coast League debut as the Colorado Springs Sky Sox fell 12-1 to the Memphis Redbirds Friday at Memphis.

Butler, one of the top prospects in the Colorado Rockies farm system, was tagged for seven runs (six earned) over 5 1/3 innings.

Butler got off to a rough start and allowed three runs in the first inning as Memphis took a quick 3-0 lead, thanks to an RBI single from Greg Garcia and a two-run single from Pete Kozma. He surrendered two more in the third before recording 1-2-3 innings in the fourth and fifth.

Trouble hit when Butler allowed two runners in the sixth before Rob Scahill came in relief. Scahill walked his first three batters faced, allowing both of Butler’s runs to score. The Redbirds finished the inning with six runs and added another in the seventh.

Rafael Ynoa’s RBI single in the second accounted for Colorado Springs’ lone run. Dustin Garneau had a team-high two hits for the Sky Sox.
