SOX STARTER NOTES:  Torres has allowed only seven earned run in his last 16.1 innings with the Sky Sox, and in nine starts with the Sox, he has allowed more than three runs in a game just once (one run or less in six starts).  Sky Sox won in Torres’ first four starts this season (2-4 in last six starts).  Torres has never faced the Salt Lake Bees in his career, as this is his first season in the Pacific Coast League and Torres was with the Rockies during the first meeting between the Sox and the Bees in late May and early June.

WHAT BROWN CAN DO FOR THE SKY SOX:  Sky Sox outfielder Andrew Brown led the team with two RBI in last night’s win, upping his team-leading RBI total to 53 on the season and he is just one of seven players in the PCL to hit the half-century mark in RBI this season.  Since May 1st Brown has totaled the most RBI of any player in Triple-A with 46.  Brown leads Colorado Springs in runs scored (41), doubles (22) and at-bats (240) while ranking third in hits with 64 behind Matt McBride (76) and Hernan Iribarren (71).

HARRIS’ HOT BAT: Sox infielder Brendan Harris had two doubles in yesterday’s win, and has totaled six extra-base hits in his last five games.  During his current five-game hitting streak, Harris is batting .444 (8-for-18) with seven RBI, six runs, four doubles and two homers.  Harris had nine extra-base hits and 12 RBI in his first 39 games.

SOX STARTERS, RELIEVERS VERY SIMILAR: Colorado Springs starters and relievers have identical 4.70 ERAs this season, even though starters total 343 innings and relievers have totaled 266.1 innings.
