Monday Pebble Report: Nuts Win Pitching Duel, Ghosts Blow Out Owlz

AAA Colorado Springs Sky Sox (36-47, 4th PCL Pacific North)

Sky Sox vs Las Vegas 51s - Postponed

 

AA Tulsa Drillers (39-41, 2nd TEX North)

Drillers 2, Missions 4

Despite a passable start from Cory Riordan, Padres top pitching prospect Casey Kelly had the edge, scattering 4 hits over 5 innings, allowing 1 run while walking 3 and punching out 7. Riordan also went 5, allowing 3 runs on 2 homers, striking out 5 and 2.

Tim Wheeler continues his fantastic Texas League campaign, going 3-for-4 over the game. Thomas Field, Wilin Rosario, and Scott Beerer all contributed a hit of their own, Beerer hitting a double and Rosario going yard.

Sean Jarrett allowed a solo shot in his 2 innings of work, while Dustin Molleken and Daniel Turpen each turned in scoreless innings.

 

A+ Modesto Nuts (39-42, 4th CAL North)

Nuts 2, JetHawks 1

Chad Bettis continues to impress the California league with his sheer punchout numbers. Striking out over a batter an inning while walking fewer than 3 per 9. He's averaging over 6 innings per start (including 8 on Sunday), but his FIP/ERA discrepancy suggests that his work on missing bats as a whole could use some improvement.

Angelys Nina contributed 2 hits and an RBI in this low scoring affair, as did David Christensen, and Scott Robinson was driven in on one of Nina's hits. 

Kurt Yacko pitched a 1-hit inning for his 2nd save of the season.

A Asheville Tourists (38-42, 3rd SAL Southern)

Tourists 4, Intimidators 5 (13)

Kyle Parker had 3 hits as the DH for the Tourists, going 3-for-6 with 3 punchouts, 2 doubles, and 2 runs scored. Helder Velasquez, Chandler Laurent, and Mark Tracy all had multi hit games, and Rafael Ortega had a hit of his own.

Brett Tanos, however, went 0fer.

Albert Campos had a legit start, pitching 6 innings of 1 run ball, striking out 5 and walking none. Isaiah Froneberger allowed 2 runs without recording an out. Juan Perez blew the lead by allowing a run in the 9th, and Dominic Altobelli gave up the final run in walkoff fashion in the 13th.

 

A- Tri City Dust Devils (10-7, 1st NOR East)

Dust Devils 2, Indians 3

Vianney Mayo was the hard luck loser in the contest, pitching 5 innings of 1-run ball. Ching Lung Lo allowed 2 runs over his inning of work, and Rhett Ballard and Christopher Dennis finished the final 3 innings in scoreless fashion.

The entire Dust Devils lineup went hitless with the exception of catcher Richard Pirkle, who went 2-for-3 on the day with 2 RBI.

 

Rk Casper Ghosts (5-9, 4th PIO South)

Ghosts 17, Owlz 5

It was a hit parade up and down the Ghosts lineup with the exception of recent draftee Carl Thomore, who only reached via walk. 3 batters notched 3 hit days, 4 more had 2 hits. Rosell Herrera had a 3 hit day with 4 RBI and a home run.

Geoff Parker didn't have the greatest of starts, going 5.2 innings, allowing 4 runs (2ER) on 5 hits, 4 punchouts, 3 walks, and a homer.

 

DSL Rockies (16-15, 4th BC Baseball City)
