Colorado Springs, W 11-6
Tons of offense in this one. Matt Miller (2-for-4, 4 RBI) started things with a two-run homer in the first, but Greg Smith fell right out of the gate after that. He allowed back-to-back doubles and then served up a two-run homer. He would allow another two-run dinger in the third inning before exiting the game. Jason Hirsh allowed one hit over the next 3 1/3 innings.
Eric Young Jr. went 3-for-5; Mike McCoy drove in two; Christian Colonel hit two solo homers in back-to-back innings; and Chris Frey had three hits, one of which was a homer.
