For the second straight night, the Sky Sox offense jumped out to a first-inning lead. With one out, Ryan Cordell launched home run No. 6 over the high wall in left field, scoring Kirk Nieuwenhuis to give the hosts a 2-0 lead. During his current seven-game hitting streak, Cordell 13-for-28 with two home runs, three doubles and 10 RBIs.
