Colorado Springs: Jeff Baker hit his first homerun of the season in the six to two loss. JD Closser also wasn't to blame, reaching base three out of four times, and in one more bit of good news, Scott Dohmann pitched a scoreless inning of relief as he gets closer to rejoining the big league staff. Remember when Kevin Jarvis was a Rockie? Well, he's the one who beat the Sky Sox if it makes you feel better. No? Me neither, that actually kind of makes me feel worse, thinking that he was able to hold our scrubs to two runs in the Springs.
Tulsa: Thanks to my late start I have to maybe give the results of two Drillers games (they are currently tied 3-3 in the eleventh). Joe Koshansky's bat is heating up, he hit his second homerun of the season yesterday in a seven to six win, Tulo was three for four with two doubles and Stewart hit a triple. Today Seth Smith's two run triple and a strong start by Steven Register have kept the Drillers in it.
Modesto: The Nuts were stopped by rain in the second inning. The game will be resumed May 27th as part of a twin bill. Dustin Hahn coming to Denver to see Rockies doctors about a completely dislocated elbow. His injury sounds pretty painful.
Asheville: The Tourists won on the road, five to three as every starter collected at least one hit and six collected two. Brett Strickland continues to impress me, despite being a little old for his league. Over the past two seasons he has blown by virtually all the hitters he's faced, and after four innings this year he remains perfect (no hits, walks or runs and six K's)
