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

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.
