Tuesday Pebble Report

New, comments

Colorado Springs: Had a scheduled day off (sorry, this was my bad yesterday). They play the Padres' AAA team Portland just down I-25 tonight, just in case you were wanting to see a Rockies affiliate actually defend its home turf.

Tulsa: Won six to three in eleven innings. Jud Thigpen broke out of a slump with four hits, while Seth Smith (two run triple, bases loaded walk) and Ian Stewart brought most of the runs home. A nice start by Steven Register and solid relief work were also highlights.

Modesto: The Nuts won four to two over the Stockton Ports. Corey Wimberly went two for three in his first start in center, and Franklin Morales had a pretty decent start, going five and two thirds while allowing only four hits and one run. Morales should start to really heat up soon. Notoriously non-powerful Chris Frey hit his first professional homerun.

"He's 150 pounds dripping wet," said Nuts manager Chad Kreuter. "But you see guys like that who generate a lot of bat speed. He doesn't show that much bat speed in batting practice, but in the game he seems to have extra bat speed."

Asheville: The Tourists lost late, four to three. Alan Johnson K'd eight in five innings, but he also allowed seven hits, including two homeruns. Chris Nelson went two for four with a double and scored twice.
