Sunday Pebble Report: Roe dominates again, while Friedrich is roughed up...again

AAA - Colorado Springs: W 10-1 (29-32)
Chaz Roe went eight innings and allowed a run on seven hits, striking out three and getting 16 groundouts (compared to only five flyouts). Over his last two outings, Roe has pitched 17 innings and allowed three runs on 11 hits, and is inducing hordes of grounders. It is possible that Roe, after spending the first couple of months of the season trying to adjust to pitching in all of the PCL's high-altitude hitters' parks, is beginning to turn the corner. We'll keep an eye on him...

Offensively, the Sky Sox were led by Mike Paulk, who had three hits including a two-run homer. Kaz Matsui and Matt Miller had three hits as well, while Omar Quintanilla and Chris Nelson (who is hitting .322) each had two knocks. Dexter Fowler went 1-for-6 with a couple of K's, while Michael McKenry was 1-for-5 with his lone hit being a bases-clearing triple in the top of the sixth.

AA - Tulsa: L 8-1 (25-33)
It is clear that Christian Friedrich has some serious work to do command-wise, as in addition to the four earned runs on eight hits that he allowed, he also hit two batters, walked two batters, and threw a wild pitch. After struggling through six innings of work, he is now 0-4 with a 4.89 ERA. ON the plus side, he struck out four and maintained a better than 2-to-1 GO/FO ratio. Ching-Lung Lo was bad in relief, allowing three runs on five hits in two innings. Not much happened offensively outside of Anthony Jackson's two hits.

High-A - Modesto: L 10-4 (33-28)
Kenneth Durst only lasted 3.1 innings and was shelled for seven runs on seven hits, in addition to walking six. Two of the seven hits were home runs. Rex Brother pitched an inning of relief, allowing a run and a hit while striking out two. Tim Wheeler went 1-for-3 with two RBIs, while Michael Mitchell and Ryan Peisel each had two hits for the offense. Jordan Pacheco was 0-for-5 with three Ks.

A - Asheville: L 8-1
Tyler Massey was 2-for-3 with a triple and an RBI, while Nolan Arenado's lone hit in four at-bats was a double. Jose Gonzalez doubled as well. Wes Musick took the loss (5-4, 4.52), allowing three earned runs on five hits in five innings. Chad Rose struck out four in two innings of relief.
