Pebble Report Saturday -

Casper: Corey Wimberly, Cole Garner, Kyle Blumenthal and Suarez all had a pair of hits each and Blumenthal and Chris Cook both homered to lead the offense while the pitching used effective but not great outings from Alan Johnson and Jamey Metzger, plus another sharp save by Andrew Johnston to bring the victory.

Tri-City: Daniel Carte tripled and finished with two hits. Jason Van Kooten had a pair of hits of his own, and Travis Becktel had a double and two walks for an otherwise slow offense. Andrew Kreidermacher took the loss after giving up seven runs in five and a third innings.

Asheville:Joe Koshansky hit his thirty-fifth homerun of the season, I'm not sure if this ties him with Brandon Wood for the minor league lead yet as I haven't checked what Wood's done this weekend, but it was all for naught as Asheville wound up losing in the ninth. Scott Beerer blew his fourth save of the season, giving up four runs that inning as the Tourists lost six to five.

Modesto: Juan Morillo wasn't that effective, but neither was his opponent, still Modesto came up short in the end of a eight to seven loss. Read about it and the rest the Nuts recent woes here. An assessment by manager Stu Cole from the Modesto Bee article:

"It boils down to making too many mistakes," Cole said after the game. "We're pitching behind in the count and giving up walks, and stuff like that comes back to haunt you.

"We can't expect to win if we're always giving teams extra outs and scoring opportunities without them earning it. That's not the way you play baseball, but that's what we've been doing the last couple of weeks and it's cost us a lot of ballgames."

Tulsa: Enmanuell Ulloa pitched well, and the Drillers used a balanced attack highlighted by Luis Guance's walk-off two run homer in the bottom of the ninth to scratch out the five to three win. Jud Thigpen also homered, and Jim Miller struck out the only batter he faced in picking up the easiest "W" of his career.

Colorado Springs: Jason Young got hammered in five innings, giving up nine runs and the Sky Sox wound up losing twelve to five. Jeff Baker had a pair of hits icluding a double, Eddy Garabito homered and Jeff Salazar reached base three out of five times with a double and two walks to highlight the offense.
