Colorado Springs: The Sky Sox won four to two yesterday behind a good start from Mike Esposito and stronger than has been usual relief work from Jamie Cerda and Nate Field. Jayson Nix and Carlos Rivera each had two hits, while Jorge Piedra was still held hitless but had two walks in four plate appearances in his fourth rehab game.
Tulsa: Tulsa lost to Springfield four to three. Matt Macri had two doubles in four AB's and Christian Colonel and Joe Koshansky each also contributed a pair of hits in the Drillers' loss.
Modesto: Ryan Mattheus got torched for ten runs in the first two innings and after that the crowd could have gone home as the Quakes wound up beating the Nuts eleven to zip. Particularly, this is true for Modesto fans, since the Nuts had only three hits all game.
Asheville: Brett Strickland's scoreless inning streak was snapped with what proved to be the game winning two run homerun in the top of the tenth -off the bat of Lucas May- as the Tourists' lost six to four. A nice three hit (plus two SB's) game for EY Jr. and three hits, including a home-run, for Cole Garner were the biggest offensive highlights. Brandon Durden went five innings, but had an unimpressive start, giving up three runs on five hits and four walks, to go along with five K's.
