Asheville, W 11-9
One guy that I believe wasn't on many PuRPs ballots but may be when we do an offseason one is Scott Robinson. He was a 30th round pick by the Rockies in 2006 and was one of their last draft-and-follows in 2007 before that process ended that year (the other was Zack Murry, who is no longer with the organization). This year was his first one in a full-season league. He's not a powerful guy, but he has hit 31 doubles this season. His 41 steals lead Asheville, and that number is currently tied for second best in the Sally (Anthony Gose leads with 70).
Batting leadoff, Robinson went 3-for-5 with three runs scored, two doubles, a triple, and an RBI. Jordan Pacheco and Kiel Roling each added three hits and two RBI. Roling had one of those RBI on his 18th homer of the season. Mike Zuanich hit his seventh homer with Asheville in the seventh, a three-run shot.
Jonnathan Aristil allowed six runs, five on two homers, in three innings. Rex Brothers pitched two innings, struck out four, and allowed a run on a homer.
Tri-City, W 6-2
Dan Perkins turned in a quality start, pitching six innings, allowing two runs, and striking out three. Seventh round pick Erik Stavert (Go Ducks!) made his pro debut, striking out three and walking one in an inning of work. Aaron Weatherford worked the last two innings and struck out two.
Bo Bowman fell a triple short of the cycle and drove in three. Joe Sanders hit two doubles and drove in two.
Casper, L 7-8
Ricardo Ferrer hasn't had the best state-side debut, and it didn't get any better last night. He allowed six runs over four innings, striking out five and walking three.
Chad Jacobsen hit his second homer of the season and drove in two; Nolan Arenado collected two hits and an RBI and Jared Clark hit a double and drove in a run.
