AAA Colorado Springs: W 3-0 (19-18, t-1st)
Drew Pomeranz was brilliant in his AAA debut, as the hometown boy shutdown the Memphis Redbirds for six scoreless innings, allowing just five hits and striking out five. Most importantly, he didn't walk a single batter. Mike Ekstrom, Adam Ottavino, and Zach Putnam combined for three scoreless (and nearly perfect) innings of relief, with Putnam being the big star as he struck out the side while throwing 12 strikes compared to just one ball.

Wil Nieves had a couple of hits and an RBI to lead the offense, while Brandon Wood singled drove in a run as well.

AA Tulsa: W 4-2 (24-12, 1st)
Nick Schmidt was fantastic on the mound for the Drillers, as he went eight innings and allowed one run on just three hits and didn't walk a batter while punching out five. He also produced ten groundball outs as opposed to just five flyball outs. Josh Sullivan allowed an unearned run in the ninth but escaped some traffic to pick up his seventh save of the year.

Nolan Arenado had two hits (including a double), as did Juan Gonzalez and Kiel Roling. One of Roling's hits was a second inning solo homer, his fifth of the season.

High-A Modesto: Off Day

Tyler Matzek (1-3, 3.98 ERA) has the ball tonight for the Nuts as they travel to San Jose.

Low-A Asheville: Postponed

Daniel Winkler (3-2, 6.82 ERA) will take the mound for the Tourists tonight in Greenville, SC.
