Rox Girl checks in at her RMN blog with her top 10 Rockies prospects. Will she stick to it when we have our end-of-the-season PuRPs poll?
Colorado Springs, L 8-15 (completion of 8/14 game) & W 6-1: In the first game, Sean Smith allowed five of the runs, but Valerio De Los Santos must be on life support after the beating he received last night. He allowed nine runs on 15 hits in five innings. Infielder Kenny Perez pitched the last inning of the game. Matt Miller drove in two of the run as he went 2-for-5.
Franklin Morales went six innings in the seven-inning second game. He walked five struck out three, and allowed the run. Christian Colonel hit a two-run homer, his 10th.
Tulsa, W 4-2: Justin Nelson (18) and Tony Blanco (23) each hit solo homers last night. Brandon Hynick held Springfield to three hits in seven innings and struck out four. Ryan Mattheus struck out three on his way to his 16th save.
Modesto: No game scheduled. Brian VanderBeek looks at what an 8-team California League may look like in two years.
Asheville: No game scheduled. Darin Holcomb was named the SAL Player of the Year, and Joe Mikulik the SAL Coach of the Year (second in a row).
Tri-City, L 0-7: Sheng-An Kuo second start with the Dust Devils was completely forgettable. He was charged with six runs on eight hits over two innings. Not much else to report.
Casper, L 1-2: Jose Gonzalez drove in the only run for Casper and Jimmy Cesario hit a triple. Omar Duarte allowed both runs in four innings. Alan Deratt allowed one hit over the next three innings and struck out three. Isaiah Froneberger struck out two over the last two innings of the game.
