Friday Pebble Report: Tulsa Goes Homer Happy, Jared Clark Homers In Season Debut

Colorado Springs, L 2-4
Mike Paulk and Cole Garner each hit a solo home run; however, everyone on offense, except for Alfredo Amezaga, struck out at least once for a total of 10. Dexter Fowler and Ian Stewart combined for an 0-for-7 night with a Fowler walk.

Bruce Billings pitched three innings of relief, allowed one hit, and struck out four.

Tulsa, W 12-8
There was a home run binge by the Drillers last night. Scott Beerer (10, 3-for-4, SB) delivered the big one with a grand slam in the fifth. Thomas Field (8) hit a two-runner in the third, and Ben Paulsen (9) added a solo shot in that inning as well. Jimmy Cesario (2) popped a two-run shot in the fourth.

In his Double-A debut, DH Mike Zuanich went 1-for-5 with a run scored and one RBI.

Rob Scahill started and allowed six runs over 5.1 innings, walking three and striking out four. Scahill left the game with the bases loaded, but Joe Torres escaped the situation by allowing just an RBI ground out. The third out of the inning, the play-by-play reports, was the third base runner out at home, Rosario to Torres.

Modesto, L 3-5
Making his season debut, Jared Clark homered in the second inning to cut into Bakersfield's 4-0 lead by one run. Carlos Martinez immediately followed with his own solo home run. Kent Matthes added his own (11) in the fourth inning.

Parker Frazier allowed four runs in the first inning, but completed six and struck out four. He did allow two base runners to start the seventh, one of which scored as an inherited run with Michael Marbry on the mound.

Asheville, W 10-4
Seven of nine Asheville batters drove in at least one run on this victory. Kyle Parker completed the scoring with a three-run homer (9) in the sixth inning. He went 2-for-5 in the game. Fellow 2010 draftee Russell Wilson went 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBI. Cristhian Adames doubled, drove in a run and walked three times.

Albert Campos allowed four runs over eight innings (the four runs scoring in the second, fifth, and sixth innings). He walked one and struck out seven. Rome starter Ronan Pacheco threw four wild pitches.

Tri-City, W 7-2
Leading just 3-2 entering the top of the ninth, Tri-City came up with four runs when DH Jordan Ballard hit a grand slam (1) to left field. First baseman Jordan Ribera earlier came up with a two-run homer (1) in the fifth inning. Ribera went 3-for-4 with two runs scored.

Vianney Mayo walked four and gave up five hits, but he saw just one run score in 3.1 innings. Stephen Head picked up the win by pitching two innings in relief of Mayo. He walked three and struck out two. The run charged to him came when Rhett Ballard inherited the base runner and allowed a single.

Casper, L 2-3
Casper starter Geoff Parker allowed three runs in the first inning by way of a couple of triples, a single, a walk, and a ground out. After that, Parker only allowed one more base runner, and that was a result of 2B Juan Ciriaco's error in the fourth inning. Reliever Brook Hart didn't allow any hits, so the only hits allowed were the two triples and one single by Parker.

Unfortunately for Casper, the only runs they could score were on a Jarod Berggren ground out (Rosell Herrera tripled before he crossed home on the ensuing play) and a Michael Ramirez double.

DSL Rockies, 9-2
Rockies LF Jesus Bacilio went 2-for-4 with a triple, a three-run home run (ninth inning) and four RBI. First baseman Franmy Pena cane up with a two-run homer in the fourth home run. The homers were the first of the season for both.

Johendi Jiminian allowed an unearned run on six hits in six innings. He struck out four.
