Wednesday Pebble Report: Jeff Francis turns in solid rehab start for Tulsa; Chris Iannetta slams grand for the Sky Sox

AA Tulsa, L 1-4
Tulsa leads this Pebble Report off because Jeff Francis made a rehab start last night, and it was a good one. He allowed no runs on six hits in seven innings. The Tulsa World reports that he was on a 90-pitch limit, and that Francis said his fastball command improved.

Unfortunately, Stuart Pomeranz allowed four runs in the eighth inning to ruin what otherwise was a good night for Francis. Jeff Kindel hit a solo homer, his fifth, in the sixth inning.

AAA Colorado Springs, L 5-6
Another day, another grand slam for Chris Iannetta in the first inning. Still, it wasn't enough to give the Sky Sox the victory. Josh Muecke allowed five runs (three in the first) over four innings, and Damian Moss allowed the sixth in the seventh. I am quite impressed with Chris Nelson's four walks last night, however.

A+ Modesto, L 2-3
After Jordan Pacheco's RBI single and Ben Paulsen's sac fly in the top of the first inning, the Modesto offense came up empty. Dan Houston turned in a decent performance in 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs during that time. Kurt Yacko finished the last 2 1/3 innings of the game and struck out three.
