Wednesday Pebble Report: Tim Redding is not and never should be an answer for the Rockies

The Springs, L 3-10
Innings four, five, and six were absolutely brutal for Tim Redding (4 2/3 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 3-R HR) and Kurt Birkins (1 1/3 IP, 4 R, 1 ER, 2 IHR, 3-R HR) because all 10 runs were allowed over that stretch of innings. Shane Lindsay struck out two in his inning of work.

Mike Paulk went 2-for-2 with two walks and two RBI. Warren Schaeffer hit his second homer of the season in the fifth inning, a solo shot.

Tulsa, L 7-8
This was a tight 3-2 game in favor of Arkansas until the seventh and eighth innings when the Drillers offense came alive. Three singles scored five runs. Scott Beerer's single scored one, and Kiel Roling's and Dayton Buller's plated two each. But the bullpen gave it back in the bottom of the eighth. Scott Rice started the inning and left without recording an out. He issued a walk and a single before a Radames Nazario fielding error scored a run. Another single put two more across the plate. Andy Graham entered and allowed one more run on a sac fly to put the score at 7-7. Nick Bierbrodt pitched the ninth and started it with a walk. A sac bunt moved the runner over to second. Setting up the double play, the next batter was intentionally walked. Wouldn't you know it, a single won the game.

Brandon Durden allowed three runs over five innings and struck out five. The offense managed seven walks, two each from Rosario and Jeff Kindel.

Modesto, W 4-2
Rob Scahill turned in a gem last night that was only blemished by a solo homer in the fourth. He struck out four in seven innings of four-hit ball. Thomas Field scored two runs and collected two hits. Jordan Pacheco checked in with three hits and two RBI. David Christensen (3), Tim Wheeler (3), and Scott Robinson (5) each stole second base.

Asheville, W 8-0
Starter Juan Gonzalez threw five innings of one-hit ball to pick up the win, walking four and striking out three in the process. Paul Bargas, Rhett Ballard, and Josh Hungerman held Augusta to three hits over the final four innings.

Jared Clark hit his seventh homer of the season, a three-run shot in the first inning. Right fielder Nathan Hines (50th round, 2009) hit a two-run blast later on in the inning. He added a sac fly in the third for his third RBI of the night. Angelys Nina drove in the other two runs in his 2-for-5 night.
