SKY SOX VS SALT LAKE: In their first meeting of the season the Salt Lake Bees took three of four from the Sky Sox, with the lone win for Colorado Springs coming in their 22-8 victory on May 30, and the Sky Sox are still the only team in the Pacific Coast League to score more than 20 runs in a game this season (the 27 hits are also the highest by any PCL team in a game this year).  The Sky Sox took 10 of the 16 games with the Bees last season, who finished last in the Pacific Northern Division, and the 10-6 record included taking six of eight games at Security Service Field.  The Bees own the edge in the all-time record at 110-130, but the two teams have split 116 games played in Colorado Springs at 58-58.

HOT WHEELZ:  Sky Sox outfielder Tim Wheeler extended his team-high hitting streak to 15 games with a 2-for-6 performance in Sunday’s game. The 15-game streak is the longest hitting streak a Sky Sox player has strung together in 2012 and is also the third double-digit Sox hit streak in 2012. His current 12-game home hitting streak is tied for the second longest in the PCL (two other PCL players have 13-game streaks at home).  Since returning from a hand injury on June 1, Wheeler has the most hits on the team with 23 in 16 games and has a hit in every game except for the first game on June 1 in Salt Lake.  During that span, Wheeler has raised his average from .200 to .304.

HARRIS HOT IN VEGAS: Sky Sox infielder Brendan Harris went to Vegas and cashed in. While in Sin City, Harris recorded a hit in all four games hitting .429 (6-for-14) with two homers, two doubles, four runs and seven RBI. On 6/17, Harris set season-highs with three hits and three runs while tying the Sky Sox season-high with five RBI.
