Wednesday Pebble Report: Alan Johnson Isn't A Rock Star, But Maybe Chad Bettis Can Be

Colorado Springs, W 6-1
Alan Johnson (guys, how did we not trade this guy at the deadline for a superstar?) kept Fresno to one run in seven innings and walked four. Cole Garner hits his eighth homer of the season, a two-run shot in the fourth. Chris Nelson had a double and an RBI, and Paulk had a double and two RBI.

Tulsa, L 6-10
Cory Riordan allowed five runs on three homers (two solo, one three-run) in the fourth inning. Andy Graham allowed four more runs in the seventh inning (one scored when Chris Malone entered the game) and didn't record an out.

The offense score five runs in the second inning, as a bunch of singles and a Charlie Blackmon double drove in the runs. Blackmon singled in another run in the fourth inning.

UPDATE: As Bryan mentions in the comments, Wilin Rosario left the game with a leg injury. The Tulsa World reports that it's a knee injury.

Modesto, L 3-9
Dan Houston was hit hard last night, allowing seven runs on 11 hits. The offense barely showed up, but three of the four hits went for doubles.

Asheville, L 3-5
Jared Clark hits his 21st homer of the season and drove in a total of two runs. Nolan Arenado hit a homer in the ninth inning, his seventh of the season. Carlos Martinez hit ha triple, his first of the season. Juan Gonzalez started and allowed five runs over six innings. Chad Rose and Coty Woods held Hickory to no runs and three hits over the last two innings of the game.

Tri-City, W 3-0
Chad Bettis twirled a gem last night, keeping Boise off the board for seven innings and striking out four. He had a 9-6 GO-FO and his ERA stands at 1.19. Chandler Laurent's homer to lead off the bottom of the first inning was enough to win the game, but Hector Gomez and Jeremiah Sammy each chipped in an RBI in the eighth.

Casper, W 10-6
Alving Mejias limited Orem to two runs in seven innings and struck out six. There was an offensive explosion. Every starter except for Cristhian Adames had at least a single, and every batter to have a hit outside of Rafael Ortega had at least two hits. Blake McDade had three hits and Juan Crousset collected four. Adames and Robert De La Cruz were the only two starters not to drive in a run.
