Rockies Prospects: Jon Gray tosses another gem

Rob Tringali

He's probably not ready for the big leagues, but Jon Gray is owning the minors.

Early runs bury Sky Sox; hey, that sounds familiar

Pedro Hernandez allowed six runs in his first four innings, and that put the Sky Sox in a ditch too deep to climb out of. They ended up losing the contest 9-3.

Kyle Parker doubled home two runs in the seventh as part of a two-hit night. Sky Sox batters worked five walks, but only three singles other than Parker's offense.

Manny Corpas worked 2.2 innings of mop-up duty.

Drillers drop pitcher's duel

Jon Gray, you are our last hope. The 2013 first-rounder twirled five scoreless, hitless innings, including seven strikeouts and three walks against the Springfield Cardinals. He was pulled after 83 pitches (gotta save those bullets; pitchers are fine china dolls lining the walls of a racquet ball court). Relievers Ryan Arrowood and Kraig Sitton both allowed runs in relief, which turned out to be too much, as the Drillers only scored once.

Taylor Featherston doubled and Jared Simon notched a pair of hits, but other than that offense was in short supply. Joey Wong scored the lone run off a Simon double. Perhaps the Drillers were still feeling somber after learning that Daniel Winkler, staff ace, is going to undergo Tommy John surgery.

Asheville Tourists: Postponed

DSL Rockies prevent the organizational sweep

The Dominican Summer League Rockies affiliate rode a doubles onslaught into a 5-3 victory. Luis Brito, Ramon Marcelino, Anthony Brito (any relation?), and Wilkyns Jimenez all had two-sackers. Breiling Eusebio struggled a bit with the start, giving up two runs in his 3.1 innings, but Juan Pena struck out five in his 4.2 innings of relief.
