Saturday Pebble Report: Roe, Scahill, and Balcom-Miller shine on the mound for Rox affiliates

Editor's note/disclaimer: Russ did most of the writing for this Pebble Report. I just posted it.

Colorado Springs, W 2-1
Chaz Roe shined last night, allowing one run in seven innings and striking out seven. Edgmer Escalona pitched a clean eighth inning and struck out two. Eric Young Jr. tripled in the bottom of the ninth and then scored on a Johnny Herrera single to win the game . EY drove in Chris Frey (who reached on a triple) in the sixth inning.

Tulsa, L 2-7
Jonnathan Aristil allowed three runs on three solo homers, two in the first and one in the fourth. He went four innings, walked three, and struck out four. Ching-Lung Lo allowed an additional three runs, and Chris Malone one.

Lars Davis hit his second homer of the season, a solo shot in the fifth. He went 2-for-3 overall.

Modesto, W 4-3
Rob Scahill had a tremendous outing, going 7.2 innings and allowing just two runs and six hits while striking out ten. He didn't walk anybody, and also maintained a superb 10-to-3 GO/FO ratio. Casey Weathers struck out the only batter he faced, and Kurt Yacko successfully closed things out for the Nuts, despite allowing a run in the ninth.

Offensively, Modesto was led by Thomas Field, Ben Paulsen, and Mike Zuanich - each of whom had two hits including a double.

Asheville, W 2-1
It wold have been hard to ask for more out of Chris Balcom-Miller last night: 8 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 6 K. It was a quiet night for Augusta.

Avery Barnes drove in Dallas Tarleton in the fifth inning on a double. Tarleton reached earlier on a double. In the ninth inning, Orlando Sandoval doubled and then scored on a Carlos Martinez double.

Tri-City, L 1-4
Nathan Hines had two hits (one double) and drove in Mark Tracy for the Dust Devils' only run. Edwar Cabrera allowed three runs over six innings

Casper, L 0-6
Tyler Gagnon hit his first real speed bump of the season, as he allowed six runs on 12 hits (three of which were home runs) in five innings as he took the loss. He didn't strike anybody out, but only walked one. On the flip side, the bullpen combined for four scoreless innings - two of which were worked by Kyle Hancock, who struck out two.

Hancock, who was originally drafted in 2005, is in his second season with the organization after being reinstated from the restricted list last June. Read about his story here.
