Rockies prospects: David Dahl, Johendi Jiminian lead the way in Asheville's blowout win

Rockies affiliates combined for 53 hits in four games on Wednesday but went just 2-2.

David Dahl went 3-for-4 with a triple and Johendi Jiminan struck out eight batters in six innings of three-run ball to lead Low-A Asheville to a 12-6 victory over Savannah on Wednesday.

Dahl also scored three times and drew a walk while batting in the leadoff spot for the Tourists. Jiminian scattered five hits and issued only one walk while earning his fifth quality start of the season, and third in as many games. Asheville totaled 17 hits against Sand Gnats pitching.

Jordan Patterson joined Dahl with three knocks and Zach Osborne, Ashley Graeter, Wilfredo Rodriguez and Alec Mehrten had two apiece as the Tourists roughed up Savannah starter Ricky Knapp, who entered the game with a 3.09 ERA and 2.24 FIP, for eight runs on 11 hits and a pair of walks in just 2.2 innings.

Tulsa 11, NW Arkansas 8: The Drillers pounded out 16 hits, three of which came off the bat of Cristhian Adames. Jayson Langfels also had three hits and Ryan Casteel hit his sixth home run of the year. Kraig Sitton closed out the game with two hitless innings that included four strikeouts. The 26-year-old left-hander lowered his ERA to 2.13 in 25.1 innings of work this season.

Lake Elsinore 9, Modesto 7: It took 13 innings for the Nuts to succumb to defeat for the 41st time in 61 games this season. Modesto jumped out to a 7-2 lead after five innings but allowed the Storm to score five in the eighth inning before Peter Tago surrendered the go ahead runs despite not allowing a hit in the 13th. The struggling 2010 first rounder walked three batters, hit one and saw his ERA rise to six. He's struck out 18 and walked 22 in 24 innings in his first full season as a reliever.

Patrick Valaika and Jordan Ribera homered for the Nuts. The latter led the club with three hits and a walk in six plate appearances.

DSL Yankees 2, DSL Rockies 0: The Rockies outhit the Yankees, 7-3, but failed to get on the board. Second baseman Jose Gomez had two of those hits. 18-year-old right-hander Juan Pena struck out six and allowed only two hits in 5.2 innings of scoreless relief. Julian Yan, who hit .282/.357/.529 with 16 home runs at Grand Junction in 2012 but struggled badly at two levels last year, made his professional debut as a pitcher and notched a strikeout while working around a hit-by-pitch in a scoreless ninth.
