The Colorado Springs Sky Sox had walk-off wins Thursday to sweep a doubleheader against the visiting Tucson Padres.

In the first game, Ryan Wheeler's solo homer in the bottom of the seventh gave the Sky Sox a 5-4 victory.

Afterward, a three-run rally in the second game, including a two-run triple by Charlie Blackmon, gave Colorado Springs a 4-3 win.

Colorado Springs took a 3-0 lead in the first inning of the first game before the Padres answered with three in the second to tie it and then tied it again at 4 in the fifth when Kyle Blanks scored on a wild pitch.

Wheeler hit his first homer of the season off losing pitcher Nick Vincent (0-2) with one out.

Tucson jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the fourth inning of the second game on a two-run single by Jaff Decker and an RBI single by Gregorio Petit.

Tucson reliever Miles Mikolas (0-1) was tagged with the loss and a blown save after taking over for Tommy Layne, who gave up a single in the seventh to the only batter he faced. With a runner on and no one out, Mikolas struck out one but gave up two hits and was charged with giving up two of the three runs in the inning.
