Evan Frey scored on a throwing error in the 14th inning to give the Colorado Springs Sky Sox an 8-7 victory over the Tacoma Raniers on Thursday.
Frey started the 14th-inning rally with a one-out single and went to third on a single by Michael Ramirez. With two outs, Tim Smalling grounded to third but was safe when Gabriel Noriega’s throw was errant. Frey scored on the play.
Sky Sox reliever Greg Burke, who had escaped a bases-loaded jam without surrendering a run in the 13th, retired the Raniers in order in the 14th to preserve the win.
The loss snapped Tacoma’s seven-game winning streak.
Angelys Nina drove in four for the Sky Sox with a two-run homer and a two-run double. Ramirez also homered for Colorado Springs, a three-run shot in the second inning.
Wilton Lopez and Leuris Gomez each pitched two scoreless innings in relief of Sky Sox starter Brian Burns.
Colorado Springs managed seven runs over five innings against Tacoma starter Taijuan Walker. Five Raniers relievers followed with eight scoreless innings before Forrest Snow surrendered the unearned winning run to take the loss.
