Saturday Pebble Report: Huston Street makes successful rehab start; Asheville experiences pitching woes

The Springs, L 6-8 (10 innings)
Huston Street started the game, struck out one, got two ground ball outs, and then left after the inning. Esmil Rogers followed with five earned runs on seven hits and three walks. He did strike out six. Matt Reynolds blew a 6-5 lead in the ninth on a couple of singles, a sac bunt, and a Michael McKenry throwing error (first of the season). Edgmer Escalona allowed a two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning.

Chris Nelson went 4-for-5 with two runs scored, a homer (3), and an RBI. Dexter Fowler had two hits, though Matt Miller and Brad Eldred each had three. Cole Garner hit his 10th double of the season.

Tulsa, W 2-1
Daniel Mayora's (who went 3-for-4) RBI single in the first put the Drillers up 1-0, and Ryan Harvey's sixth inning solo home run put the Drillers up 2-1. Cory Riordan pitch solidly for 7 1/3 innings, allowing only a run and striking out eight.

Modesto, W 4-1
Juan Nicasio turned in a strong start by allowing a run and striking out seven in 6 2/3 innings. Kurt Yacko and Adam Jorgenson finished the game, the latter picking up his 16th save with a clean ninth inning. Thomas Field and Ben Paulsen led the offense with two hits and an RBI each. Paulsen hit a triple.

Asheville, L 0-6
The Tourists managed three hits off of Mark Cohoon in his complete game shutout of the team. One Tourists has all three hits. Two of those hits went for doubles. Name that batter. No one guessed Joey Wong? Well, Joey Wong did do that. He was also only one of two batters not to take part in Cohoon's 10 Ks.

Chris Balcom-Miller made it into the seventh inning, but that was the inning when the game got out of reach. Earlier in the game, Balcom-Miller had not allowed a hit until the fifth, when he allowed two runs. He did have a wild pitch and an HBP earlier. Also, he struck out eight, walked three, and had a 7-1 GO-FO. But he started the seventh off by allowing a double, a single, and finally an RBI double. He left the game. Leuris Gomez relieved him, surrendered a two-run triple, and one more run later in the inning.
