Sky Sox dominate Nashville, 6-1

Posted: Updated:

The battery combination of Brent Suter and Tyler Heineman powered Colorado Springs to its third straight win, defeating the Nashville Sounds, 6-1, in front of 11,097 at First Tennessee Park Saturday night.

Suter (1-0, 0.00) earned the victory by going five scoreless innings, scattering four hits and striking out three batters in his first Sky Sox outing of 2017. Andrew Barbosa entered in the sixth inning and struck out the side, finishing his evening with two scoreless innings and five strikeouts.

Tim Dillard and Wei-Chung Wang finished the eighth and ninth innings respectively, allowing a single run combined.   Nashville (3-7) placed at least one runner in seven of the nine innings, but the Sox pitching corps stranded nine Sounds baserunners to hand the hosts their fourth straight loss.

During the first five games of the seven-game road trip to Tennessee, the bullpen has allowed just four earned runs in 19 innings, while striking out 24 batters.

The Sky Sox (6-3) jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead three batters into the game off Nashville starter Paul Blackburn (0-2, 2.25). Lewis Brinson led off the game with a double to left field and scored two batters later on a passed ball by catcher Bruce Maxwell.
