Colorado Springs: The only team in the entire organization to not win yesterday, the Sky Sox lost four to two to Aaron Sele and the Las Vegas 51's. Jon Asahina gave up all four runs in the bottom of the sixth, and the Sox didn't score themselves until the ninth, but by then it was too little, too late.
Tulsa: The Drillers swept a double-header from Frisco, eight to three in the first game, and four to one in the second. Troy Tulowitzki finished with four hits, a double and HR (his first this season) in the first, and a double and single in the second. Seth Smith also had four hits in the two games, including two doubles in the first and all the Driller regulars except for Jud Thigpen and Christian Colonel had at least some hit in one of the two games. Juan Morillo started the first game and pitched all seven innings, giving up just one earned run (a Jake Blalock HR) on four hits and seven K's.
Modesto: The Nuts won six to five as Corey wimberly collected three more hits, a walk and a stolen base(although he was also picked off once) and Chris Frey also had three hits and a walk and scored twice. It was another middle of the road outing for Dragon Lo, neither good or bad, six innings, four runs allowed on five hits and a walk and three K's.
Asheville: Another great start by Xavier Cedeno, he gave up only two hits and a walk in six innings, striking out eight. On the ten other balls he allowed in play, he had seven to three GB/FB ratio. If he can learn to harness his stuff like this regularly, we could be looking at something very nice for our future. Chris Nelson hit his first homerun of the season, and it happened to come in the ninth inning with the bases loaded for a dramatic grand slam that made the seven to three final make this game seem less close than it was. The Tourists trailed one to nothing for most of the game, before taking a two to one lead in the top of the eighth and then seeing that go back to a three to two deficit in the bottom half of the inning. They then scored five in the ninth and had James Burok come in the bottom half to seal the win.
