Jungmann, Wren carry Sky Sox to win over Round Rock


Kyle Wren homered and had two hits, and former Texas Longhorn Taylor Jungmann allowed just five hits over six innings as the Colorado Springs Sky Sox beat the Round Rock Express 4-0 on Thursday at Dell Diamond.

Jungmann (9-2) picked up the win after he struck out five and walked one. His win prevented a series sweep by the Express.

In the top of the first, Colorado Springs grabbed the lead on a solo home run by Wren. The Sky Sox then added two runs in the second and a run in the eighth. In the second, Ivan De Jesus hit a two-run single, while Nick Noonan hit an RBI single in the eighth.

David Ledbetter (3-4) went six innings, allowing three runs and five hits in the Pacific Coast League game. He also struck out three and walked three.

Round Rock missed a scoring opportunity in the fifth, when Brett Hayes struck out with the bases loaded to end the inning.

The Express were held off the scoreboard for the 11th time this season, while the Sky Sox’s staff recorded their 10th shutout of the year.

Despite the loss, Round Rock is 8-4 against Colorado Springs this season.
