As I mentioned yesterday, the Tourists fell 3-0 in the first game of a double header, but don't discount Dragon's performance, he pitched very well outside the two big hits given up in the first.
In the second game Jake Postlewait came through with a very positive outing of his own, giving up only three hits and two runs in five innings. He struck out only two, but didn't walk anybody and earned the victory. Jeff Dragicevich continues to fill in well for Chris Nelson, whose hamstring problems are starting to be a concern, getting two hits, including a key double in the Tourists' three run third and Matt Miller followed with a two run single. Adam Bright picked up the save.
In Modesto, Eudy Morel looks like a very streaky pitcher, after being Marcos Carvajal'like in the first few weeks and not giving up anything, his last two outings have seen him get hit hard. He gave up three more runs in the eight inning last night, nullifying another strong performance by Tomas Santiago (six innings, five hits, two runs, zero walks, five K's). Seth Smith homered and Ian Stewart hit a run scoring double for the Nuts.
In Tulsa, rain prevailed 1 to nothing.
Colorado Springs saw a more typical PCL contest than Monday's 3-1 victory, last night the Sky Sox prevailed 10-6 thanks to a stong offensive performance from Choo Freeman (three hits,) Jorge Piedra (two,including a homerun) Ryan Shealy (a triple? how in the heck does he get around?) and Tim Olson (also three hits, including a double) and a couple of great relief appearances by Ryan Speier (he's done great since his demotion) and the recently promoted Alex Serrano, who last we saw was the closer in Tulsa. The two combined for four innings of shutout ball, Serrano's two were perfect in fact, with one strikeout. Speier also struck out one and allowed two hits but no walks. Hopefully this is a sign of near future brightness for the Rox' own bullpen.
