Wednesday Pebble Report - Pitching Runs Dry, Ortega Just Runs

AAA Colorado Springs

Sky Sox 1, Aces 11

John Maine continues his AAA struggles, allowing 7 runs to cross over 4 innings with only 2 strikeouts and a walk. Yes, a single walk. Also 9 hits, including 1 homer and 1 double. Maine did get 1 flyout to 8 groundouts, however, so it seems he was victim of 1000 paper cuts. Bruce Billings pitched 2 no-hit innings with a strikeout and Rex Brothers pitched his own scoreless frame (2K, BB, H). These two relievers were merely bookending Sean White's 4-hit-4-run 2 innings, which included a homer and a triple. 

The lone Sky Sox run came on a Mike Jacobs homer.

 

AA Tulsa Drillers 

Drillers 0, Missions 6

Juan Nicasio pitched very well, striking out 6 over 5 innings while walking none, allowing 3 hits and 1 unearned run. Stephen Dodson was the only pitcher for Tulsa who didn't have a run cross on his 0.2IP watch. Keith Weiser allowed 1 over 2IP, Casey Weathers 2 over 0.1IP (thanks to a 2-run bomb from Cody Decker), and Karl Chris Malone allowed another 2 over 1IP (thanks to 2 doubles). Almost the saddest part was that the Missions had 15 baserunners and only converted 6 of them. Well, for them, anyhow.

High-A Modesto Nuts

Nuts 5, Blaze 3

Jerome Chad Bettis allowed 3 runs in 5.2 innings of work, as well as 6 hits, 7 punchouts, 1 walk, and 149 rushing yards on 33 attempts. Eliezer Mesa stole 2 bases and Delta Cleary stole one of his own, while Nolan Arenado, Kent Matthes, and Joseph Sanders all had multi-hit days. All Hail Scott Gaffney, who blew the lead, allowing 2 runs over 1.1IP.

 

A Asheville Tourists

Tourists 3, Power 6

Not a great day for Tourists pitching. Joshua Slaats, Joshua Mueller, and Rafael Suarez allowed 2 runs apiece, and the staff allowed 13 baserunners over the course of the game. Kyle Parker had 2 hits and Dustin Garneau hit a homer. And yes, Rafael Ortega stole 4 bases, bringing his season SB total to: 4.
