Saturday Pebble Report: DSL Affiliate Scores 16 Runs on 6 Hits

The Rockies' affiliates went 5-3 yesterday but had a +28 run differential.

Las Vegas 9, Colorado Springs 7

Four players, including Dexter Fowler, had multi-hit nights for the Sky Sox (36-46), with Mike Jacobs and Ryan Rohlinger hitting 2 run homers (their 14th and 7th respectively), but it was not enough as they fell 9-7. Andy Graham (0-2) gave up six runs in three innings to take the loss.

Corpus Christi 9, Tulsa 4

The Drillers (38-40) got a 3 run shot and 4 RBI from OF Brian Rike (his 2nd) but not much else in the loss. Josh Sullivan went 7 innings and struck out 9, but he allowed 6 runs on 8 hits (only 1 was earned due to a damaging error by Ben Paulsen in a five run fifth) to take the loss (2-7).

Modesto 17, Lancaster 3

The Nuts (36-42, 4-5 2nd half) won a laugher last night, as both OF Kent Matthes and PuRP 25 SS Josh Rutledge drove in four men. Matthes went 3-6 with a 3 run homer (13) while Rutledge was 3-4 with a double. Former PuRP OF Delta Cleary had an interesting night, going 1-1 with 2 steals, 3 walks, and 4 runs scored. Dan Perkins was the beneficiary of the run support, going 7 innings and allowing 3 runs on 5 hits to get the win (1-4).

Asheville 5, Kannapolis 4

The Tourists (37-41, 6-3 2nd half) were outhit 10-8 but were able to pull out a one-run win due in part to a ninth inning run that scored on a walk, a passed ball, and two wild pitches. Catcher Bryce Massanari went 2-4 with a solo shot (13) and a double to lead Asheville. Kraig Sitton got the win with a scoreless inning of relief to run his record to 5-0 while Juan Perez got his 16th save.

Short season ball after the jump.

Tri-City 10, Spokane 3

The Dust Devils (9-6) tied for the NW League lead with their 3rd straight win last night, thanks in part to multi-hit nights by SS Timothy Smalling and OF Jared Simon as well as a solo shot by 1B Jordan Ribera (3). On the mound, Ben Alsup threw 4 scoreless innings to start, allowing 3 hits and striking out 5. Nelson Gonzalez came in on relief and threw the last five innings to get the win (1-0), striking out 8 and allowing 3 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits.

Casper 7, Idaho Falls 4

The Ghosts (3-9) got a rare win last night, thanks in large part to an early offensive burst that saw them up 6-1 after 4 innings. Future PuRP SS Rosell Herrera continued his strong stateside debut with a 2-4 night, while countryman Robert De La Cruz also went 2-4 and added a two-run homer (1). Raul Fernandez got the win (1-2) with five innings of one-run ball, while Michael Wolford recorded his 2nd save with 1.1 IP of scoreless relief, striking out 3.

Game 1: DSL Padres 4, DSL Rockies 2

In the Dominican Summer League, the Rockies affiliate (14-15) fell 4-2 in a 7 inning game. They were led offensively by a catcher named Rosario -- Jairo Rosario that is -- who had 2 hits, as did LF Raimel Tapia. Carlos Estevez took the loss (0-2) with 5.2 IP of 3 run ball.

Game 2: DSL Rockies 16, DSL Padres 4

The Rockies (15-15) got their revenge in game two, and how! OF Cristian Quintin led the team with 4 RBI and a 3-run HR (1), but it was mostly the Padres that did the damage to themselves. After all, the Rockies scored 16 runs on only 6 hits! Padres pitchers walked 12 men in the game, hit 3 more, and the fielders committed an error as well. That's 16 baserunners that reached base without getting a hit -- in only 7 innings! Helmis Rodriguez got the win (2-2) with 5 innings of 1 run, 1 hit ball while striking out 5.
