MEMPHIS, Tennessee – The Memphis Redbirds (33-20) won for the 10th time in their last 12 games, 3-2 over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox (Brewers) Tuesday afternoon at AutoZone Park, to complete a 7-2 homestand.
Patrick Wisdom was 2-for-4 and extended his hitting streak to 14 games, matching his career long, and Preston Guilmet picked up his Pacific Coast League-leading 11th save of the season. Kevin Herget turned in the 10th-straight quality start by a Redbirds starter, picking up the win after allowing two runs on four hits in 6.0 innings.
The game was tied at 1 until Colorado Springs plated a run in the top of the sixth for a 2-1 lead that only lasted through that half-inning. With one out in the bottom of the sixth, Wisdom singled, moved to second on a Luke Voit single, and scored on a Wilfredo Tovar knock. After a force-out moved Voit to third, he then scampered home on a wild pitch to give Memphis a 3-2 lead.
From there, the Memphis bullpen locked in and tossed 3.0 scoreless innings to finish the ballgame, with Guilmet getting the final four outs for his 11th save.
