COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Anthony Garcia hit a two-run double in the top of the 10th inning to help lead the Nashville Sounds to a 9-7 win over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox on Sunday. The Sounds swept the four-game series with the win.

The double by Garcia scored Steve Lombardozzi and Dustin Fowler. The double came after an RBI single by Lombardozzi that gave the Sounds the lead earlier in the inning.

In the bottom of the inning, Col. Springs scored on a single by Nate Orf that brought home Domingo Santana. However, Raul Alcantara got Tyler Saladino to fly out with runners on first and second to end the game for his fifth save of the season.

The Sounds tied the game 6-6 in the ninth when Jorge Mateo hit an RBI single, scoring Fowler.

Bruce Maxwell singled three times in the win. Fowler doubled twice and singled, scoring three runs and driving home a couple.

Ryan Dull (2-2) got the win with 1 1/3 innings of scoreless, one-hit relief while Tim Dillard (2-3) took the loss in the Pacific Coast League game.

Several Sky Sox chipped in at the plate, as five players had at least a pair of hits. Tyrone Taylor tripled and singled twice. Stranding 12 men on base, the Sky Sox did not take advantage of some good scoring chances in the loss.
