Colorado Springs, W 7-5 - Victor Zambrano did what you'd expect out of him: 5 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 4 K, and 1 HR. Steven Register made his Sky Sox debut in the eigth inning, went 1 1/3 IP, and allowed a run. Josh Newman came in for the last two outs in the ninth to pick up his first save.
Seth Smith drove in two more runs on a single in the ninth, the second runner proving to be the game-winner. He also struck out three times. Ian Stewart had his third RBI of the season when he drove in Seth Smith on a double in the first. He had his first stolen base also.
Tulsa, L 1-5 - Corey Wimberly went 4-for-4 last night with his first stolen base. He scored the only Tulsa run when Justin Nelson doubled him in during the eighth inning. Chris Nelson committed a throwing error.
Ching Lung Lo went three innings and allowed the five runs (three earned). He walked two and struck out none. Jarrett Grube threw two innings of no-hit relief. Pedro Strop had a better outing this time, though by no means great. In one inning he allowed two hits and walked a batter, but did not allow any runs to score.
Modesto, L 2-4 - It was not a good night for knuckleballer Simon Ferrer last night. In five innings, he allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits and walked four. Will Harris, however, pitched two innings and struck out four.
Matt Repec drove in both runs in the seventh inning on a double. Victor Ferrante reached base that inning on a double also before scoring. Geoff Strickland had two singles, but also committed two fielding errors. The Nuts struck out a combined 12 times last night.
Asheville, W 2-0, L 1-7 - In a seven-inning complete game, Cory Riordan shutout Lexington in the first game of the doubleheader. He struck out six. Brian Rike hit his first home run of the season (which was to the short right-field porch at McCormick FIeld). Everth Cabrera walked twice.
Fellow 2007 draftee Connor Graham didn't fare as well as Riordan. He went 3 2/3 IP in the second game and allowed six runs (three earned). He walked four and struck out three. Everth Cabrera had two more walks in this game, but didn't have a hit in this game either.
