Monday Pebble Report: McMahon, Gallego, Burke among highlight performances

Doug Pensinger

Ryan McMahon and Niko Gallego each had excellent games as Rockies affiliates went 3 for 5. Devin Burke showed some very Rockies-esque success. Meanwhile, Asheville's game was suspended midway due to rain.

Colorado Springs 4, Fresno 2

Ben Paulsen hit is 18th home run as one of two hits. He scored twice and knocked in two. Kent Matthes also had two hits. The rehabbing Carlos Gonzalez went one for three with a walk. Nick Schmidt pitched very well; through six and two thirds innings, he allowed seven hits (six singles) and three walks, but limited the damage to one earned run. He struck out four. Steven Hensley allowed the second run in the eighth inning. Logan Kensing closed the game cleanly for his 15th save.

Tulsa 2, Springfield 1

Tyler Kuhn had two hits, including the only Tulsa extra-base hit, a double, and scored one of their two runs. Tim Smalling batted in one run and scored another. Delta Cleary Jr. batted in the final run. Eddie Butler only threw three innings, but they were good: two hits, one walk and three strikeouts while allowing no runs. Leuris Gomez followed with three more clean innings, and Joe Gardner with two. Springfield scored one run off closer Cole White, but White nailed down the game afterward.

Stockton 10, Modesto 3

Niko Gallego led the Nuts offense, going 3 for 3 and ending a double short of the cycle. Will Swanner doubled and knocked in a run. Tyler Gagnon struggled, allowing eight runs on 12 hits and two walks over four and two-thirds. Geoff Parker allowed two more runs (one earned). Ryan Buch and Patrick Johnson finished the final three innings cleanly, but it was too late for Modesto.

Augusta 2, Asheville 1 (suspended in bottom of the 2nd)

The tourists game ended just after Dillon Thomas scored on a wild pitch to cut the August lead in half. The game was called due to rain. It will resume tomorrow and be completed as part of a double header, Matt Carasiti's start being cut short.

Vancouver 2, Tri-City 1

Wilfredo Rodriguez and Sean Dwyer each had two hits, but the Dust Devils as a whole were unable to produce a single extra base hit. Ryan Warner was excellent for five innings, allowing just one hit and two walks. Johendi Jiminian didn't fare as well in his first relief appearance of the year, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over three and two-thirds.

Ogden 2, Grand Junction 9

Ryan McMahon had three hits, including a three run homer that helped bolster his five runs batted in on the day. Jordan Patterson scored three times, despite not reaching via hit or walk. Cesar Galvez and Raimel Tapia each joined McMahon in the two-hit category.

Devin Burke was excellent through six innings, allowing just three hits and a walk for no runs. He didn't strike out a batter, but got nine groundball outs. Carlos Estevez and Scott Firth each gave up a run in relief.
