Sugar Land slugged their way to a 9-0 win, and now have won sixth straight games, improving to an amazing 28-5 overall. After getting a run in the first, they put four on the board in the second thanks to an error and four walks by starter Chris Cody and lead 5-0 after two.
They added four more runs from the fifth to the seventh, powered by home runs from Michael Rockett and Dominic Ramos.
After one rain delay earlier, the game was finally cancelled when the rain came down once again and the game was stopped in the bottom of the eighth and the Skeeters would win by that 9-0 final. Michael Nix improves to 4-0, by allowing just one hit in five innings, extending his scoreless inning streak to 24 in a row, but Aaron Bates hitting streak ends at 20 after going 0-4.
The Skeeters move on to nearby Lancaster, for the second part of this road trip. Sugar Land began the season with a six game sweep of Lancaster at Constellation Field. In Game 1 of the series, Sugar Land sends out LHP Jason Lane (3-0, 2.75) against LHP Lenny DiNardo (2-3, 4.95).
