Despite jumping out to a four-run lead in the first inning and a two-homer day for left fielder Jason Pridie, it wasn't enough for the Sky Sox (4-4).

The Round Rock Express (5-3) exploded in Thursday's series finale to win their third straight against the Sky Sox, 14-8.

Express starter Scott Baker (2-0) got off to a rough start when Pridie drew a leadoff walk, followed up by an RBI triple from right fielder Tim Wheeler and an RBI double from Corey Dickerson. The Sky Sox added another two runs thanks to a triple by first baseman Ben Paulsen and a single by second baseman Drew Garcia.

Baker, however, was able to hold the Sky Sox scoreless over the next five frames.

RHP Christian Bergman (1-1) sat the Express down in order in the first, and retired the first two in the second to make it 23 consecutive batters he retired, dating back to his first start in New Orleans.

But center fielder Jared Hoying hit a two-run bomb with two outs for the Expres, who proceeded to score eight runs before the fourth inning.
