Sunday Pebble Report: Nice pitching efforts up and down the organization

AAA - Colorado Springs: L 1-0 (20-21)
Alan Johnson took his first loss of the season despite pitching seven brilliant innings, allowing just a run and only five baserunners (four hits, one walk) and striking out six. The offense just did not give him any help whatsoever as they were only able to muster up three singles - one of which came off the bat of Johnson. Chris Iannetta and Chris Frey were the others. Juan Rincon pitched a scoreless inning of relief, for what it's worth.

AA - Tulsa: W 7-3 (17-24)
Keith Weiser evened up his record at 3-3 after pitching eight effective innings, allowing three runs on six hits (and a homer). He induced 11 ground ball outs in the process. Meanwhile, Daniel Mayora was the clear-cut offensive star for the Drillers, as he went 3-for-4 with a homer and four runs batted in. Weiser and Ryan Harvey pitched in multi-hit efforts, as well.

High-A - Modesto: L 3-2 (24-18)
The Nuts jumped out to a 2-1 lead behind RBI singles by Thomas Field and Ben Paulsen. That lead held all the way until the eighth, when Kurt Yacko allowed a two-run home run to lose the game for Modesto. It spoiled a decent effort by Dan Houston, who did not allow an earned run in five innings pitched. James Cesario and Maikol Gonzalez each had a couple of hits, but it, as was the case with Rex Brothers' scoreless ninth, was too little too late.

A - Asheville: W 13-4 (16-25)
The Tourists broke out their bats in this one, as four players registered multiple hits, led by Joey Wong, who went 3-for-5 with two doubles and four runs batted in to raise his batting average to .394. In addition, Kent Matthes had two hits and four RBIs, while Eliezer Mesa had two hits, three RBIs, and FOUR walks, as Kannapolis was unable to get him out. Wes Musick had an all-around solid outing. He went just five innings, but only allowed two runs (both on a home run) on just three hits and struck out seven. Daniel Perkins struck out four in 1.2 innings of relief, and Leuris Gomez pitched a scoreless ninth, striking out two to close out the game.
