Tuesday Pebble Report: Rockies Farm System Doesn't Have Performance Like Mike Moustakas' Three-Homer, 11-RBI Game

Colorado Springs, L 3-6
Center fielder Chris Frey went 3-for-4, and LF Cole Garner drove in a run. Taylor Buchholz allowed a run in two-thirds of an inning, but it was Andrew Johnston who saw the runner score.

Tulsa, W 6-5
Cory Riordan pitched well last night, reaching the eighth inning. He gave up three runs, though one scored as an inherited when Rex Brothers entered the game. Brothers allowed two more runs but finished the inning. Bruce Billings picked up the win as he struck out two in the top of the ninth.

Of course, Billings needed help from the offense to get the win. In the bottom of the eighth, DH Charlie Blackmon hit a two-run single to tie the game at five. In the bottom of the ninth, 2B Jason Van Kooten started the inning off with a single and eventually scored from second base on a SS Radames Nazario single.

Modesto, L 6-9
Josh Sullivan failed to pitch out of the third inning, allowing five runs on seven hits. Kenny Durst followed that up with four runs allowed in 4 2/3 innings. 1B Ben Paulsen went 2-for-4 with four RBI.

Asheville, L 5-6
The good news for Wes Musick last night was that he struck out eight in four innings. The bad news was that he allowed six runs (four earned) in four innings, gave up nine hits, and threw two wild pitches. Leuris Gomez (who hasn't been mentioned in a Woody Paige article, right, RMN?) held Hickory to three hits in four innings and struck out six.

Second baseman Angelys Nina went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, a double, and two RBI. CF Delta Cleary Jr. went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI.

Tri-City, L 0-2
Yakima scored both of its runs on wild pitches by Edwar Cabrera in the sixth inning. Also, Yakima only had one hit. The Casper offense collected three singles.

Casper, W 7-6
Interesting ending to the Casper game last night. DH Ryan Casteel singled with men on first and second. A throwing error by the 3B Matt Helm scored two runs to give Casper the victory. CF Rafael Ortega went 3-for-5 with four runs scored and a double. LF Corey Dickerson went 3-for-5, falling a double short of the cycle. His 10th homer of the season was a two-run shot. Catcher Will Swanner had three hits as well.

Hector Barraza started and struck out 10 in five innings.
