Sky Sox rally falls short in 11-10 loss

Posted: Updated:

Brett Phillips recorded his first four-hit game of the season, but the New Orleans Baby Cakes scored five runs over the final three innings to come out with an 11-10 win in front of 8,195 at Security Service Field Friday night.

New Orleans put up a five-spot in the top of the second inning, but the Sky Sox (69-46) answered with a pair of runs in the bottom half of the inning to cut the deficit to 5-2. Chris Colabello lined a two-run double to the left-center field gap, easily scoring Phillips and Nate Orf.

The No. 4 and 5 batters teamed up to produce another run in the fourth inning. After Phillips lined his team-tying 10th triple of the season to lead off the frame, Orf skied a RBI double to the base of the center field wall. The starting right fielder would come in to score two batters later, when Rene Garcia launched a deep sacrifice fly to the center field warning track to score Orf and trim the deficit to 5-4.

Colorado Springs took their first lead of the night with a two-run fifth inning on a pair of two-baggers. After Mauricio Dubon stole second base, Ivan De Jesus lined an opposite-field double over the head of right fielder Chad Hinshaw to tie the game. One batter later, Phillips recorded his third hit of the night, blooping a double down the left field line to plate De Jesus and give the Sox their first lead.
