Baby Cakes edge Sky Sox 5-4

Posted: Updated:

The Colorado Springs Sky Sox used a four-run sixth inning to come from behind, but the New Orleans Baby Cakes scored a run in the 10th inning to walk off with a 5-4 win in front of 9,151 at the Shrine on Airline Friday night.

New Orleans took a 3-0 lead on a home run from Brian Anderson, but the Sky Sox (76-53) fought back with a four-run sixth inning without a ball safely leaving the infield. Chris Colabello grounded a RBI infield single between Peter Mooney and Anderson to score Quintin Berry, who broke up William Cuevas’ no-hitter with an infield single of his own.

Brett Phillips and Nate Orf followed Colabello with bases-loaded walks for the third and fourth free passes of the inning. Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Ivan De Jesus, who both drew walks, trotted home to tie the game. The Sox took the lead one pitch later, when Clayton Mortensen unleashed a wild pitch on the first toss to Tyler Heineman, allowing Colabello to score and give the visitors a 4-3 lead.

RHP Bubba Derby (4-0, 3.38 ERA) takes the mound for the Sox Saturday night at 5:00 p.m. MT, looking for his third straight win and second in a row against RHP Keyvius Sampson (5-4, 5.85 ERA) and the Baby Cakes. With the Oklahoma City Dodgers getting rained out Friday night, the Sox magic number remains at three.
