Lewis Brinson shines in Sky Sox loss to New Orleans

Posted: Updated:

Lewis Brinson had a two-home run day, but the New Orleans Baby Cakes scored four in the 11th inning to pull away with an 8-4 win in front of 3,802 at Security Service Field Sunday afternoon.

Colorado Springs (69-47) jumped out to a quick lead for the second time in the series two batters into the first inning. Lewis Brinson muscled an opposite-field solo home run to right-center field for his second homer in as many at-bats. The 12th long ball of the season for Brinson extended his hitting streak to four games and marked the eighth time this season where a Sky Sox batter has homered in back-to-back games.

The No. 1 prospect repeated his efforts in the third inning, launching his second home run of the day halfway up the scoreboard for a two-run shot to give the Sox a 3-0 lead. Kyle Wren scored on the 13th long ball for Brinson, who became eighth Sox player with a two-homer game in 2017.
