COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Colorado Springs squelched an Oklahoma City comeback with a four-run seventh inning Wednesday night, and the Sky Sox beat the RedHawks 7-5 in a Pacific Coast League baseball game before 3,817 fans at Security Service Field.
Marc Krauss’ three-run homer in the sixth inning and Jonathan Villar’s two-run single in the seventh helped Oklahoma City take a 5-3 lead. But the Sky Sox (37-49) answered in the bottom half of the seventh. With the bases loaded and two out, Angelys Nina greeted newly inserted reliever Jorge De Leon with a bases-clearing double to give Colorado Springs its margin of victory.
Oklahoma City (45-42) failed to score in the eighth inning after putting two runners on with no outs. Robbie Grossman led off the ninth with a walk, but Boone Logan escaped further damage for his first save of the season.
Former Stillwater High product Brett Anderson made his first rehab start for Colorado Springs. He shut out Oklahoma City on two hits, a walk and four strikeouts in 32/3 innings.
The series wraps up with an 8:05 p.m. game Thursday. Oklahoma City will then return to Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark for a seven-game homestand against Iowa and New Orleans.
