Sky Sox drop pitcher's duel 1-0

Posted: Updated:

Angel Ventura threw seven quality innings, but the Memphis Redbirds took three of four in a 1-0 victory over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Friday night in front of 5,590 at AutoZone Park.

Making his second start of his Triple-A career, Ventura (1-1, 2.08) took the tough loss, but shut down a potent Memphis offense by holding the Redbirds to four hits and one earned run while striking out four in seven quality innings. The righty from Santo Domingo allowed three hits the first time through the Memphis lineup, but responded by retiring 16 of the final 17 battters faced.

Colorado Springs (38-27) head back to the Rocky Mountains for a quick four-game homestand with division-rival Oklahoma City, beginning Saturday night at 6 p.m. MT at Security Service Field. The series opener is Star Wars Night, presented by the Phil Long Dealerships. A bevy of characters from the classic movie series will be in the stadium and fans are encouraged to dress as their favorite character, with a Star Wars-themed fireworks show capping off the night.
