The Colorado Springs Sky Sox jumped on the Las Vegas 51s early, and the home team held off the 51s 11-5 in the first of a four-game series in Colorado.
Colorado Springs scored six in the first two innings and finished with 15 hits. It’s the 51s’ ninth loss in the last 11 games.
While the Sky Sox struck the first blow, Las Vegas’ Zach Lutz and Kirk Nieuwenhuis each hit home runs.
The 51s return Tuesday night for game two and then stay on the road another week before returning to Cashman Field on June 17.
