Wednesday Pebble Report

Colorado Springs: It took the Sky Sox fifteen innings to dispatch the Iowa Cubs, two to one. Ryan Spillboghs' sac fly proved the game winner.  The only other score for the Sox came off a Jorge Piedra solo shot. Mike Esposito had one of his more effective outings of the season, going seven innings and (another solo HR) and six hits. Espo also struck out six.

Tulsa: Steven Register gave up four homers himself and took a pounding from the Midland Rockhounds. The Driller offense showed some signs of awakening, however, cranking out ten hits. Joe Koshansky, Joe Gaetti, Seth Smith and Doug Bernier each had a pair, with the two leftover being triples from Ian Stewart and Chris Iannetta. Koshansky homered for one of his two.

Modesto: Franklin Morales had another hard luck start, going six strong innings, only allowing one run on four hits and five strikeouts(one walk) but he picked up the loss nonetheless as the Nuts offense was shut out. Only three hits were mustered by the Nuts O, singles by Corey Wimberly and Jonathan Herrera, and a double by Chris Frey. Wimberly stole his nineteenth base of the year.

Asheville: Speaking of stolen bases, what's gone off in the head of Eric Young Jr? Since he had this awful game April 28, at Columbus wherein he was caught trying for second, picked off of first, and struck out four times while his teammates ran rampant, EY Jr has gone on a stolen base tear, going thirteen for fifteen in the SB department in the eleven games since, including three for three last night. Wow. Oh, by the way, he also went three for four with two doubles and three runs scored as Asheville pounded out fifteen hits in all but couldn't hold onto the win with poor work out of the pen by George Delgado and Brett Strickland. Chris Nelson, Dexter Fowler, and Cole Garner also had nice games at the plate.
