The affiliates were 2-3 yesterday, with one game suspended.
Colorado Springs 2, Sacramento 1 (Suspended in 4th)
The Drillers (32-26, 1st) fell behind 3-0 in the first, but they clawed back into the game with 3 in the 4th and 2 in the 5th. Angelys Nina, Michael Mitchell, and PuRP 2 Nolan Arenado all had 3 hit games for Tulsa. Nick Schmidt only went 5 innings and gave up all 4 runs but he got the win, while Coty Woods pitched a clean 9th for his 9th save, lowering his season ERA to 0.36 in 25.1 IP.
The Nuts (30-31, 5.5 GB) committed 4 errors in this game, which didn't help. Even less helpful was the fact that they were down 9-0 before they got on the board in the 5th. Juan Gonzalez got knocked around (9 runs on 9 hits in 5 innings) to drop his record to 2-8. PuRP 7 Kyle Parker, Brett Tanos, and Chandler Laurent all had multi-hit nights for the Nuts.
The story in this one was Colorado's 1st rounder in 2011, PuRP 14 Tyler Anderson. Anderson threw 6 out of the 7 innings in this contest, allowing only 3 hits and 3 walks while striking out 2, improving him to 4-0 in his pro career. Brian Humphries provided the offense in this one, hitting a 2 run shot (1) in the 2nd.
This one was a tough one to swallow for the Tourists (41-19, 1st), who were up 4-0 entering the bottom of the 3rd. However, after that they failed to score and their opponents scored 5 over the next 3 frames to take the game. Harold Riggins was 2-3 with 2 RBI to lead the Tourists.
The DSL Rockies (3-2, 1 GB) fell behind 5-0 early and couldn't recover. Catcher Franmy Pena drove in both runs for the DSL Rockies, while CF Wilson Soriano was 1-1 with 3 walks. After Carlos Estevez gave up all 5 runs in 4 innings, the bullpen shut the opponents down over the last 5, allowing 5 hits and striking out 5.
