Wednesday Pebble Report: Drew Pomeranz roughed up in Tulsa

USA TODAY Sports

The All-Star break didn't provide any relief for Pomeranz, who is on track to pitch for the Rockies on Monday.

Tulsa, L 8-6 (44-49)
All was not well for Drew Pomeranz on Tuesday night in Tulsa. He lasted just 5⅓ innings, allowed seven runs on 10 hits -- including two home runs, one a three-run shot in the third -- and struck out five. He wound up throwing 105 pitches, 70 for strikes, when he got the hook.

Dan Houston struck out four in the seventh inning, the second Drillers pitcher to strike out four in a single inning in a week, but Mitchell Boggs served up a gopher ball in the ninth inning for Northwest Arkansas' insurance run.

Kyle Parker drove in a couple of runs on a ground out and an error. Tim Smalling scored four times and collected two doubles. Joey Wong went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI while Cristhian Adames added three singles.

Tri-City, L 2-1 (15-17)
Tri-City had only two hits and struck out 11 times in Tuesday night's loss to Spokane. Third baseman Ashley Graeter drove in the only Dust Devils run on a seventh-inning home run, his first of the season. He went 1-for-1 with two walks.

Logan Norris pitched 5⅔ innings, allowed two runs on five hits (including a home run), and struck out five.

DSL Rockies, W 2-1 (21-17)
Nineteen-year-old righty Javier Palacios threw allowed just one run on five hits in his nine-inning complete game. He struck out four and finished with a 14-5 GO-FO.

Third baseman Luis Castro drove in both Rockies runs, the first on a double in the first inning and the second in the sixth inning on his second home run of the season.
