Sky Sox rally to beat Iowa 6-4

Posted: Updated:

Kyle Wren drove in four runs and the Colorado Springs Sky Sox scored three runs in their final at-bats to steal a 6-4 win over the Iowa Cubs in game two of the Tuesday night doubleheader in front of 6,909 at Principal Park.

After getting shut out in game one, the Sky Sox (71-48) jumped out in front three pitches into the game. Wren welcomed RHP Scott Carroll to the Iowa Cubs by launching his fourth home run of the season to right field, giving the visitors a quick 1-0 lead.

Colorado Springs extended their lead with a pair of runs in the fourth inning. After Nick Noonan singled and Kirk Nieuwenhuis doubled to lead off the inning, Paolo Espino helped his own cause by laying down his second successful sacrifice bunt of the game to score Noonan. One batter later, Wren grounded a single up the middle with two outs to score Nieuwenhuis and give the Sox leadoff batter his second RBI of the night.

Iowa (58-63) scored four runs to take the lead in the fifth inning, but the Sox fought back with three runs of their own with two outs in the top of the seventh. A walk, a throwing error and a hit-by-pitch loaded the bases for Brett Phillips who drew a walk with a full count to drive in Chris Colabello and tie the game. One batter later, Wren grounded an infield single to score Tyler Heineman and Yadiel Rivera to give the visitors a two-run lead.

The Sox and I-Cubs square off in a single game Wednesday morning at 11:08 a.m. MT. RHP Taylor Jungmann (8-1, 2.86) looks for his team-leading ninth win of the season in his third start against Iowa in 2017.
