Due to work demands, this one will be a little brief:
Casper: Cole Garner was a homerun shy of the cycle, but also had three strikeouts in six at bats. Chris Cook and Jeremy Brownell homered and the Rockies lost a slugfest late, twelve to ten.
Asheville: Jake Postlewait had his best outing of the year and the Tourists won three to one as Jose Valdez two run homerun was the difference. Chris Nelson got the classic golden sombrero, going zero for four with four K's
Modesto: The Nuts finally won a game despite Juan Morillo being pulled early. Everybody except for Jonathan Herrera in the lineup got at least one hit, Michael Davies and Rick Guarno had a pair each, and Joe Gaetti scored two runs on a single and a walk. Alberto Arias bailed Morillo out with four and a third innings of two hit ball, he had three strikeouts and a groundball to flyball ratio of eight to two.
Tulsa: Enmanuel Ulloa tossed a nice five and a third and the Drillers had some more solid pen work from Judd Songster and Jim Miller. Miller has yet to give up a run in eight and a third innings since being called up from Modesto. Jordan Czarniecki showed some definite signs of breaking out of his own AA tranistion slump by going three for three with a walk. Czarniecki's game at the plate is built on having a high OBP, so this was definitely a breakthrough performance.
Colorado Springs: The Sky Sox lost to Fresno seven to four. Mike Esposito would have had an okay start if it weren't for Doug Devore, who hit two homeruns off of him. As it was though, Esposito took the seven to four loss. The offense for the Springs was powered by homeruns from the two Ryans, Shealy and Spilborghs and one from Dan Conway. Jeff Salazar had a double, a walk, a stolen base and an outfield assist, but it's probably too much to hope that this is a sign of things to come.
