Moore’s triple leads Colorado Springs to win over Round Rock


Dylan Moore hit a run-scoring triple in the ninth inning, leading the Colorado Springs Sky Sox to a 3-2 win over the Round Rock Express on Friday. The Express saw their seven-game winning streak come to an end with the loss.

Erik Davis got Andy Ibanez to ground out with runners on first and second to end the game for his first save of the season.

The triple by Moore, part of a two-run inning, gave the Sky Sox a 2-1 lead before Jett Bandy hit an RBI single later in the inning.

In the bottom of the ninth, Round Rock (37-43) cut into the lead on a single by Scott Heineman that scored Drew Robinson.

Nick Ramirez (1-0) got the win in relief while Ricardo Rodriguez (1-1) took the loss in the Pacific Coast League game. It was his first win of the year.

The Express struggled to score through the first seven innings before Ibanez hit a solo home run to tie the game in the eighth.

Aaron Brooks started for the Sky Sox (44-35), allowing just one hit through 5 2/3 innings. The homer by Ibanez off Ramirez spoiled Brooks’ chance at picking up the win.

Richelson Pena got the start for Round Rock, giving up just one run on six hits through six innings. He struck out seven, a career high in Triple-A, and didn’t give up a walk.
