Rockies prospects: Raimel Tapia, Correlle Prime stay hot for Asheville

The Rockies' Low-A affiliate improved to 80-46 behind impressive performances from Prime and Tapia.

Asheville Tourists teammates Raimel Tapia and Correlle Prime combined to go 8-for-9 with a pair of home runs in the team's 11-3 victory over Augusta on Sunday.

Tapia (PuRP No. 5) had three hits, including a solo home run -- his ninth -- to raise his average to .331. Prime (PuRP No. 23)was the real standout, though, finishing with five hits -- one of which was a two-out-two-run homer in the first -- to go with three runs scored and three RBI. Over his last four games, Prime is 12-for-17 with four homers, 11 RBI and eight runs scored.

Zach Jemiola didn't waste the tremendous run support, tossing seven innings of one-run ball. Jemiola gave up only four hits, and the lone run he allowed was unearned. His ERA is down to 4.90 after surrendering only four earned runs in his last 18 innings. More importantly, he bounced back from head-scratching eight-walk outing his last time out to issue only two free passes this time around.

Wilfredo Rodriguez (PuRP No. 22) added three hits for the Tourists, who racked up 15 as a team. Ryan McMahon (PuRP No. 6) picked up two of those.

Dwyer homers twice

Tri-City outfielder Sean Dwyer hit two home runs off of Spokane reliever Austin Pettibone in the Dust Devils' 7-0 win. Dwyer, the Rockies' 11th-round pick in 2013, went deep in the fifth to extend his team's lead to 5-0 and crushed a two-run shot two innings later.

Drew Weeks had a team-leading four hits, and Sam Bumpers and Shane Hoelscher, who is hitting .319 -- added three knocks apiece.

Logan Sawyer tossed six scoreless innings, allowing five hits and a walk while striking out one.

Other scores

Fresno 11, Colorado Springs 7: Matt McBride homered and had a pair of hits to lead the Sky Sox offense in a Game 1 loss. Rafael Betancourt tossed a scoreless sixth in his first Triple-A appearance.

Fresno 4, Colorado Springs 3: Sky Sox starter Mike McClendon held the Grizzlies scoreless through five innings, but Rob Scahill surrendered three runs in the sixth and another on a walk-off home run from Juan Perez in the seventh to take the loss. Rafael Ynoa and Dustin Garneau had two hits apiece.

Frisco 6, Tulsa 1: Tyler Massey had two hits for the Drillers, who were hurt as a result of their relievers allowing four runs in four innings (though with the lack of run support, it really didn't matter much).

Visalia 8, Modesto 5: Juan Ciriaco and Alex San Juan had two hits apiece. David Dahl doubled in four at-bats on his poster day. Dean Espy hit his seventh home run of the season.

Grand Junction 11, Great Falls 9: Hamlet Marte and Nate Causey both homered and drove in three runs for the rookie Rockies. Luis Castro was perfect at the plate, singling four times and drawing a walk in five plate appearances. A guy named Aaron Bummer pitched for Great Falls. All in all, a great day!
