This will be short.
Asheville was rained out, and is playing a double header today. In the first game that was just completed, Dragon Lo was hit hard in the first (a homerun, a triple, three runs) but was excellent after despite some shaky defense behind him (hint, the double you'll see hit against him in the box score shouldn't be a hit at all). Those three were the only runs of the ballgame as the Tourists couldn't muster any offense at all against Maximo de la Cruz.
Modesto played and won last night, Ian Stewart got his first hit and Chris Ianetta his first homerun of the season, and Seth Smith had four hits himself. Matt Macri had another solid outing as well. Pitching, Ubaldo Jiminez had mixed results in four innings, not his best outing although the only reason he was pulled was due to a pitch count restriction. Jim Miller got his sixth save, dropping his ERA to 0.73
Tulsa also won 5-4, Sean Barker had a triple and homerun, leading the offense. Jayson Nix got on with a single, but typical of how his season has gone, he then got picked off. I really do hope things turn around for him (as long as its not with a divisional rival) but I think he might need a change of scenery.
Colorado Springs won 3-1 behind Jason Young's solid seven inning outing. Hopefully, he's over his struggles from the start of the year. In a very positive sign for the upper level of the system, he only walked one batter and struck out seven. Jorge Piedra had three hits, including two doubles, and Ryan Shealy also had a couple of singles for the Sky Sox.
