Rox De La Rosa looks solid in Sky Sox start

Colorado Rockies rehabbing starter Jorge De La Rosa gave up only one run in six innings fueling a 5-2 Colorado Sky Sox victory over Portland Sunday afternoon at Security Service Field.

The Sox broke a 0-0 tie in the bottom of the second. Travis Metcalf drove the game's first run with an RBI groundout; 1-0.

Though the Beavers would draw even at one with a score in the top of the fourth, the Sox quickly struck back in the bottom half of the inning. De La Rosa helped his own cause, driving in two with two out base-hit to give the Sky Sox a 3-1 lead.

The Sox would pile it on in again in the sixth, plating two more on the strength of a double, a walk, and a single.

Meanwhile, De La Rosa continued to impress, throwing six innings of one-run ball complete with five strikeouts and just one walk.

With the win, the Sky Sox improved to 35-42 while the Beavers fell to 30-46 with the defeat.

The two teams will face off Monday for the third leg of their four-game series. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
