Sky Sox drop series finale 4-2

Posted: Updated:

Gabriel Noriega and Nate Orf drove in runs Sunday afternoon, but the Sacramento River Cats scored three times in the final three innings to take the series, 4-2, in front of 3,042 at Security Service Field.

Playing in his first game since being recalled to the Sky Sox from Double-A Biloxi earlier in the week, Noriega drove in his first run as a member of Colorado Springs on a two-out single to left, scoring Orf. The Sox third baseman led the offense with two of the six total hits, tallying his first multi-hit game of the season.

After Sacramento (15-21) tied the game in the third, the Sox responded and retook the lead in the fourth inning. Orf lined a RBI single of his own up the middle, scoring Ryan Cordell, who extended his season-long hitting streak to eight games with a single to start the rally.

Josh Hader earned a no-decision on the mound for Colorado Springs (21-11). The lefty went five innings, allowing one earned runs on five hits and struck out four River Cats in his second consecutive no-decision of 2017.

The Sky Sox head back on the road, playing the PCL Pacific Southern division for the first time this year. Hiram Burgos (2-2, 3.55) takes the mound to start a four-game series with the El Paso Chihuahuas Monday night at 6:35 p.m. MT in West Texas. After playing the San Diego Padres’ top affiliate, the Sox head north on I-25 for four games with the Albuquerque Isotopes, Triple-A Affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, starting Friday night.
