Saturday Pebble Report

Colorado Springs: Postponed

Okay, so at least the Sky Sox didn't lose.

Tulsa: L 7-3

Ching Lung Lo couldn't finish the five run fourth inning, and even though Corpus Christi would add a couple more runs, that pretty much decided things. Eric Young had three hits, including two doubles, but an unsuccessful suicide squeeze attempt (bad bunting by Lo) resulted in a CS in the second. Matt Miller and Neil Wilson also had two hits.

Modesto: L 5-4

The Nuts almost came back on the Ports bullpen, but the game was ended when Victor Ferrante grounded into a 6-4-3 double play with the bases loaded in the ninth. Nick Haley, Anthony Jackson and Matt Repec were the Nuts with multiple hit games. Keith Weiser's start wasn't bad, two runs allowed in five innings via six hits and three walks, but it was the usually solid David Patton who gave up the bulk of the Ports scoring. Will Harris and Andrew Johnston remain unscored upon for the season.

Asheville: L 7-2

Connor Graham was one of the Asheville pitchers I had pretty high hopes for this season, but unlike rotation mates Jhoulys Chacin and Cory Riordan, he has yet to approach those expectations. Yesterday Graham walked four, gave up three hits and allowed five runs in just four innings. Only two of the runs were considered "earned" thanks to a Jeff Cunningham error, but Graham's pitching seems as much at fault here. Darin Holcomb finally got around to hitting his first homerun on the season, he's been hitting well, so I think it's safe to assume there will be several more before the year is out. Brian Rike and Everth Cabrera both also continued hit streaks, and Warren Schafer added two hits of his own. Rike's had a hit in every game since Sunday, and a week ago today was the only time he's been held hitless on the year so far.
