Friday Pebble Report: Flashback to 2008 - Aaron Cook in vintage form

Doug Pensinger

Aaron Cook delivered a great outing for the Sky Sox in a losing effort. That was about as good as it got as the Rockies' affiliates went 0-3 on the night.

Triple-A Colorado Springs - L 2-1 (14-11)

The Sky Sox lost a pitcher's duel 2-1 Thursday in Salt Lake City. Aaron Cook put in his best performance of the year pitching six strong innings allowing just one run. Cook had a GB/FB ratio of 9/0. Nick Schmidt took the loss giving up a walk-off sacrifice fly in his third inning of work.

The only offensive fire power for the Sky Sox came from a Matt McBride solo shot in the second inning. Other than that blast, Colorado Springs' bats were silent, managing just five other hits, all singles.

Double-A Tulsa - Postponed

High-A Modesto - L 5-4 (9-18)

Modesto lost late Thursday night in 12 innings 5-4.

Chris Jensen pitched 4.1 innings and was tagged for four runs, three earned in the start for the Nuts. Jensen was followed by an excellent relief effort that saw five Modesto pitchers combine for seven innings and allow just one run, albeit an unearned run, that saddled Kraig Sitton with the loss.

Modesto's 2-5 hitters all collected multiple hits on the night and they combined for 10 hits. However, they could not deal the decisive blow. They were lead by Harold Riggins three-run home run in the third, but the bats were mostly quiet after that.

Low-A Asheville - L 6-3 (16-10)

The Tourists lost 6-3 despite outhitting the Hickory Crawdads 10-6. The Crawdads were aided by three Tourists' errors that allowed three unearned runs to score.

Eddie Butler -coming off a brilliant one-hit eight inning performance - took the loss pitching 5.2 innings allowing five runs, two earned. For Butler it was his first loss of the season. On a positive note, Butler struck out eight, a season high for the right-hander.

David Dahl was 1-5 with a double and Tom Murphy was 1-2 with a triple and two walks. Rosell Herrera recorded his 18th RBI and Francisco Sosa his 19th.
