Wednesday Pebble Report: Drew Pomeranz continues knocking on the Major League door

USA TODAY Sports

The farm went 1-2 on Tuesday night, but the lone win featured a strong performance by Drew Pomeranz.

The Springs, W 9-3
Record: 14-9

The Sky Sox opened up a 4-0 lead after the first inning and never let the game get close after that. Greg Golson's RBI double, Charlie Blackmon's RBI single, and Charlie Culberson's two-run double provided the offense in the first inning.

Blackmon, who went 3-for-5, drove in his second run of the game on a double in the second inning, but it was Golson who had the big blast of the game. He hit a two-run home run to left field in the fourth inning, extending the Sky Sox' lead to 7-0.

Drew Pomeranz won his fourth game for the Sky Sox with six innings of three-hit, one-run ball. The lone run came on a fourth-inning home run. He struck out seven, walked three, and had an 8-0 GO-FO. Rob Scahill allowed a two-run homer in the eighth.

Tulsa, L 7-4
Record: 13-12

The Drillers dug a hole for themselves after the first inning, down 4-0 after Tim Gustafson allowed a steal of home plate on a double steal and a three-run home run. By the end of the fourth inning, that deficit increased to 6-0. Jose Gonzalez and Delta Cleary chipped away at Arkansas' lead with RBI singles in the fifth inning, but the Drillers failed to put runs on the board again until Kiel Roling and Cristhian Adames knocked in a couple of runs in the ninth.

Modesto, L 3-1
Record: 9-16

The hits were few, but the strikeouts were numerous for the Nuts Tuesday night. Second baseman Taylor Featherston went 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI. He had one of the team's fifteen strikeouts, but it was third baseman Trevor Story who had the dubious honor of leading the team in that category with four in four at-bats.

Starter Tyler Gagnon allowed three runs on eight hits -- one a home run -- and struck out five in 5⅔ innings.
