Round Rock falls before rain returns
The Colorado Springs Sky Sox and Round Rock Express again were rained out in Colorado Springs on Thursday night after the Sky Sox won the first game of the scheduled doubleheader 4-2.
That made it three nights on a row with rainouts in the Pacific Coast League series.
In the afternoon game, Nate Orf singled to score Mauricio Dubon in the first inning for a 1-0 Sky Sox lead. Pete Kozma tied it for Round Rock in the third as he sin- gled, moved to second on a groundout, stole third and scored on a wild pitch.
Ivan De Jesus Jr. hit a sacrifice fly to put the Sky Sox back up 2-1 in the bottom of the third, and they made it 3-1 on walk, a single, a sac- rifice bunt and a wild pitch in the fourth.
Travis Snider pulled Round Rock within 3-2 with a home run in the sixth, but Colo- rado Springs got an insurance run in the bottom half as Orf doubled, moved to third on a groundout and scored on a wild pitch.
Wei-Chung Wang (6-1) got the win in relief, and Round Rock starter Tyler Wagner (3-10) took the loss. Rob Scahill struck Will Middlebrooks out with runners on first and third to end the game for his seventh save.
The second game will be made up if necessary in the final series between the teams at Round Rock on Aug. 28-31.
