Colorado Springs had its game canceled due to the weather. There will be no makeup game as this was the last game between the Sky Sox and Albuquerque Isotopes in 2010.
AA Tulsa, W 2-1
Tulsa and Arkansas combined for 16 hits, but scored only three runs last night. Luckily, the Drillers fell on the correct side of the W-L column. A Ryan Harvey RBI single in the first and a Scott Beerer RBI single in the eighth pushed the Drillers to the win.
Christian Friedrich had some good with some bad in this start. The good is that he struck out seven and allowed only one run on three hits. The bad is that he walked four in 4 2/3 innings. Forty seven of his 78 pitches went for strikes and he had a 3-1 GO-FO. Sean Jarrett picked up the win by pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings.
High-A Modesto, W10-3
Jordan Pacheco continues his assault on the .400 mark with a 5-for-5 night (.408 BA), scoring four times and knocking in four runs. Two of his hits went for doubles. Ben Paulsen also had a big night, hitting his first homer of the season as part of a 3-for-5, 4 RBI night.
Ethan Hollingsworth allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings, striking out four. Isaiah Froneberger threw quite well in relief of Hollingsworth, striking out three in 2 2/3 innings. Michael Marbry pitched a scoreless ninth and struck out two. He has not allowed a run yet in May (five appearances).
Low-A Asheville, Suspended
Chris Balcom-Miller started for the Tourists and did well by the look of his state line. He went 2 1/3 innings before the game was suspended. He struck out three and allowed two hits. He had a 3-1 GO-FO.
Hopefully the thunder storm and nickel-sized hail won't repeat when this game resumes Saturday.
