Casper: Chaz Roe continues to impress in his debut, he went another five innings last night, allowing only one run on three hits and two walks and six K's. It was Roe's fourth straight winning decision. Taking a look at his ratios shows considerable improvement, over his first three outings, Roe's BB/K rate was an even 9/9 in eight and two thirds innings pitched. Over his last four games, however, Roe's ratio is a much improved 11/24 in twenty-two innings. His WHIP over these last four games stands at an even 1.0, in the first three, it was nearly 2.0. So essentially, Roe's halved his baserunners while keeping the K's at about the same level. No wonder he's winning.
Offensively, the highlight reel for Casper was almost entirely Chris Cook, who started with a first inning homerun, and wound up four for four with a double as well. Andrew Johnston came in and pitched yet another scoreless ninth.
Tri-City: The Dust-Devils lost another one, as the offense continues to struggle. Travis Becktel had two doubles and Michael Paulk two singles. Buzz Vargas pitched decently but not well enough to squeeze out the win.
Asheville: The Tourists won six to four as Joe Koshansky and Jose Valdez each collected two hits. It was a homer free night for both of them, but Koshansky did drive his thirtieth double, to give him a mondo impressive sixty five extra base hits on the season (out of 124 total hits).Trevor Allen in his second game got aboard all four times he was up with a single and three walks.
Tulsa was off and the Springs/Memphis tilt got cancelled due to wet grounds.
