SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The Sioux Falls Pheasants offense was on fire early and ran away with a 13-7 win over the Lincoln Saltdogs Saturday night at Sioux Falls Stadium. The Pheasants scored in each of the first four innings, led by a strong outing from Cesar Nicolas, who collected six RBIs on a home run and two doubles. Nicolas was one of five Pheasants with multi-hit nights. Rod Scurry (2-1) earned the win for the Pheasants in relief of starter Alan DeRatt. Scurry pitched 3 1/3 innings, allowing one unearned run on three hits. He struck out two and walked one. An ailing DeRatt left in the fourth inning, still suffering from a flu virus that forced him to miss his last start. The Pheasants chased Lincoln starter Tommy Palica (1-3) after two innings. He gave seven runs on seven hits, while striking out three and walking two. Sioux Falls is now 8 and 7 on the season as they wrap up their 4 game weekend series with the Saltdogs today.
