The Colorado Springs Sky Sox (9-9) edged the host New Orleans Zephyrs (6-13) by the score of 2-1 on Monday night and moved back to .500 on the season in the process. The win gives the Sox a two-games-to-one advantage in the four-game series with an opportunity to take the series Tuesday in the series finale.

Christian Bergman (2-1) tossed seven innings in a classic bayou pitchers' duel. In his seven innings Bergman gave up one unearned run on six hits, two walks and two strikeouts.

The two clubs scored unearned runs in the first inning. Sky Sox second baseman Drew Garcia singled with one out and moved to third when Z's center fielder Jake Marisnick misplayed the ball. He scored on a sacrifice fly by Ryan Wheeler. The Sky Sox took advantage of reliever San Dyson (0-1) and scored the eventual winning run with the baseball never leaving the infield.

Game four of the series is set for Tuesday at 10 a.m. with LH Tyler Matzek (1-0, 3.00) taking the hill for the Sky Sox opposite RH Jay Rogers (0-1, 5.84). Fans can follow the game on Twitter @SkySoxGameDay or tune in to the call with the voice of the Sky Sox Dan Karcher on AM 1300 The Animal.
