Tuesday Pebble Report: Corey Dickerson and Kyle Parker homer, Tyler Matzek struggles


Modesto saved the Rockies from an organizational sweep on Tuesday. A couple of outfield prospects shined in losing efforts while one of the club's top remaining pitching prospects battled control issues.

AAA Colorado Springs: L 14-3 (2-3, 4th place, 1.5 GB)

The Sky Sox were clobbered for the second day in a row and have now been outscored, 28-4, over their past two contests. Aaron Cook was blasted for six runs on five hits and a pair of walks in 2.2 innings. Rob Scahill didn't fare much better in relief, giving up four runs on six hits in an inning and a third.

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-3 with a homer, while Tim Wheeler doubled and DJ LeMahieu tripled.

AA Tulsa: L 4-3 (1-4, 3rd place, 1 GB)

Isaiah Froneberger blew the save and took the loss by allowing two runs on three walks and a hit -- a walk-off single off the bat of Corpus Christi's Michael Burgess. Tyler Matzek struggled with control in four innings of work, allowing two runs on three hits and five walks. He struck out five.

Both Kyle Parker and Kent Matthes hit solo home runs, while Delta Cleary went 2-for-4 to raise his average to .167.

A+ Modesto: W 3-2 (3-2, 3rd place, 1 GB)

The Nuts scored three times in the top of the second and held on for the win as a result of a solid effort from starting pitcher Tyler Gagnon, who lasted 6.2 innings and allowed two runs on four hits and struck out three. He didn't walk a batter. William Rankin, Kenneth Roberts and Scott Oberg combined for 2.1 innings of scoreless relief to preserve the victory.

Tyler Massey singled twice and drove in a run, while David Kandilas and Niko Gallego also notched an RBI apiece. Trevor Story went 1-for-3 to raise his batting average to .111.

A Asheville: L 4-3 (3-2, 2nd place, 1 GB)

Like Modesto, the Tourists scored all of their runs in one inning. Derek Jones hit a three-run blast in the top of the third to put Asheville on top momentarily. Jones, who replaced David Dahl on the Tourists' roster, also doubled and singled as part of a 3-for-4 night.

Shane Broyles was decent in 6.1 innings, striking out three and walking one while allowing seven hits. However, he surrendered four runs as a result of two big flies and wound up taking the loss.
