A day after scoring 10 runs amid a number of big offensive outings, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox were blanked 3-0 on two hits by the host New Orleans Zephyrs on Saturday.

Jason Pridie and Angelys Nina had the Sky Sox hits.

Yohan Flande took the loss, allowing three runs including a two-run homer by Josh Rodriguez in the third.

Bryan Evans picked up the win going 6 1/3 innings, allowing one hit and three walks. Two relievers only allowed one more in the remaining 2 2/3 innings.

McBride breaks his foot

Sky Sox utility player Matt McBride walked through the big-league clubhouse on crutches, a day after breaking his foot during a home run trot, the Denver Post updated.

McBride hit his first Triple-A homer of the season Friday, during the third inning in Colorado Springs against Oklahoma City. But as he jogged between first and second base, he felt a pop.

"It was like I got shot," McBride said.

McBride broke the metatarsal bone in his right foot, he said, and may have aggravated a previous stress fracture. He'll return "hopefully sometime in June," he said.

McBride was hitting .265 with nine RBIs this season.
