J.J. Sherrill got the Colts (11-12) on the board in the bottom of the third with an RBI double to make it 3-1 Edinburg. That as the only run Martinez would allow.
Carlos Hereaud extended the Roadrunners lead to 5-1 with a two-run homerun, his second of the season.
In the top of the seventh, Pino came into score on a fielding error by the second baseman. With two runners on, Eric Bloom lined a two-run double that allowed Perren and Tony Phillips to score extending the Edinburg lead 8-1.
