(OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma) – The Sugar Land Skeeters scored seven runs in the second inning and prevailed for a 10-8 win Sunday night against the Oklahoma City Dodgers.

The Skeeters scored seven runs in the second inning to propel themselves to the win. The seven runs marked the most in an inning for the Skeeters this year and their six hits matched their most in an inning in 2021.

Colton Shaver opened the second-inning scoring with a two-run single and Miguelangel Sierra followed with a line-drive three-run homer to left field at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, his sixth of the season. Taylor Jones added an RBI single and Ronnie Dawson a sacrifice fly.

Oklahoma City made it a 7-4 game in the third inning, with a three-run home run from Matt Davidson. The Skeeters fired back in the fourth inning on a two-run single from Dawson and RBI single from Sierra.

Right-hander Peter Solomon got the start for the Skeeters and surrendered six runs on 10 hits through 4 1/3 innings. Colin McKee came on in relief of Solomon and stranded runners on first and second to end the fifth inning.

Zach Reks brough the Dodgers to within two in the sixth inning with a two-run home run. McKee picked up the winning decision, tossing 1 2/3 innings and striking out two while allowing two runs on a hit.

Skeeters closer Ronel Blanco struck out one in a perfect ninth inning to pick up his 12th save of the year.

Josh James continued his MLB Rehab Assignment and totaled 24 pitches, allowing a hit, and picking up a strike out through 2/3 of an inning. With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Ralph Garza Jr. retired two straight batters to keep Oklahoma City off the board.

The Skeeters and Dodgers continue their series at 7:05 p.m. on Monday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.
