Sky Sox crush Memphis 14-4 on Tuesday night

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

The Colorado Springs Sky Sox scored in the first four innings and earned their fifth straight win, cruising to a 14-4 victory over the Memphis Redbirds in front of 4,503 at Security Service Field Tuesday night.

With the win, the Sox (8-3) set a club record for the best start to a season, surpassing the 7-4 marks set by the 1989, 1992, 1997, 2007, 2009 and 2013 clubs.

Lewis Brinson led the way from his leadoff spot with five RBIs during his 4-for-6 night, while starting pitcher Paolo Espino (2-0, 4.76) drove in three runs of his own to pace the offense. In total, eight of the nine starters recorded at least one hit during the season-high 18-hit outburst.

Memphis cracked the scoreboard first with a single run in the top of the first inning, but the Sky Sox responded with a pair of runs during their first at-bats. With one out, Ryan Cordell tripled to the right-centerfield gap to score Eric Sogard, who doubled to start the rally. One batter later, Garrett Cooper grounded out to second base, plating Cordell and giving the first baseman his team-leading 12th RBI of 2017.

After the Redbirds scored two more runs in the second inning, Colorado Springs scored two more runs of their own to take a 4-3 lead. Ivan De Jesus and Yadiel Rivera singled to lead off the frame and Andrew Susac drove in his first run at Security Service Field in 2017 by lofting a sacrifice fly to right field, plating De Jesus. Two batters later, Brinson doubled to right-centerfield to score Rivera and extend his hitting streak to six games.
