ROUND ROCK, Texas - The Colorado Springs Sky Sox split Tuesday's doubleheader at the Round Rock Express.

The Sky Sox won Game 1 4-1 behind a strong rehab performance from righty Tyler Chatwood, but the night cap saw the Express redeem themselves in a 6-0 shutout.

In the opener, Chatwood tossed 6.1 innings, allowing one run on five hits, fanning eight with zero walks. His blemishes were a fifth-inning solo homer by Brett Nicholas, and a double by Andy Parrino in the fourth.

The Sky Sox got on the board in the second when Tim Wheeler hit a sharp single to right field that was deflected off 2B Brent Lillibridge to score Ben Paulsen. Jason Pridie grounded into a force out, but Kyle Parker was able to score to make the lead 2-0.

The Sox would tack on two more runs in the fifth inning thanks to a two-run shot by Josh Rutledge.

In the second game, it was all Round Rock powered by Bryan Petersen who drove in four runs thanks to a second-inning three-run homer.

Pridie was the lone Sky Sox to have two hits in the second game.
