The Colorado Springs Sky Sox beat the Tucson Padres 6-2 on Sunday, handing the T-Pads their fifth consecutive loss to tie a season mark for longest losing streak.
Tucson scored first Sunday on an RBI double by Jedd Gyorko in the first inning but fell behind after three unearned runs crossed for the Sky Sox in the bottom of the second. Jimmy Cesario picked up an RBI single in the rally and added another RBI hit in the third inning to put the Sky Sox up, 4-1.
Gyorko drove home Blake Tekotte in the sixth inning to put the Padres down by two, but it was as close as Tucson would get.
Tucson starter Anthony Reyes allowed one earned run in four innings of work. Reliever Chris Haney has been impressive since arriving from High-A Lake Elsinore. Haney pitched two scoreless innings Sunday and now has an ERA of 3.00 in his first three Triple-A outings. Josh Spence pitched a scoreless inning for the Padres.
Tucson put two on base in the top of the ninth, but Colorado Springs manager Stu Cole brought in Dustin Molleken, who retired the final two batters for his first save of the season.
Gyorko is now 6-for-9 with three RBIs in the series. Cody Decker went 2-for-5 for the Padres with two doubles. The Padres left 15 runners on base in the loss.
