Tim Wheeler’s two-run double into left field put Colorado Springs ahead 4-0 after four innings.

The Padres scored their lone run of the game in the bottom of the sixth on an infield single by Andy Parrino and a throwing error by Sky Sox pitcher Jason Bergmann. Colorado Springs added two runs in ninth to increase their lead to 6-1.

Cory Riordan threw six shutout innings, striking out six batters in his third win for the Sky Sox. Eddie Kunz lost his second game for the Padres, surrendering four hits and two earned runs in four innings of relief.
