The Colorado Springs Sky Sox (10-13) took the lead in the first at-bat of Monday's game against the Memphis Redbirds (11-13) and would keep it throughout to beat the Redbirds on their home turf, 7-4.

On the second pitch of the series opener, Tim Wheeler cranked a solo shot to left field. A throwing error and walk in the next two at-bats set the table for Ryan Wheeler, who smacked an RBI double to left to start his 3-for-4, three-RBIs night.

The Sox tacked on two more in the first frame courtesy of RBI singles from Evan Frey and Paul Janish, before Scott McGregor (0-4) got Colorado Springs' starting pitcher RHP Christian Bergman (3-1) to line out for the third out.

In the second inning, Ryan Wheeler added to the Sky Sox lead on his second homer of the season, a two-run dinger to right field.

Oscar Taveras, a top Memphis prospect, hit a two-run homer in the third.
