Colorado Springs: Omar Quintanilla continues to break out of his season opening slump, yesterday he went three for four with a double and the game winning homerun in the eleventh inning of the Sky Sox six to five victory. Ryan Shealy had a pair of hits, as did Juan Melo, Jorge Piedra and Ryan Spillborghs to help pace the offense. The best pitching performances were turned in by relievers Justin Hampson and Nate Field after starter Jon Asahina gave up four runs early.
Tulsa: Troy Tulowitzki hit his third homerun of the season and Chris Iannetta lauched his fifth as the Drillers won in a rout, nine to four. Seth Smith had a pair of doubles and three RBI and Joe Koshansky contributed three hits himself to help lead the offensive charge. Juan Morillo pitched a solid five and a third innings, striking out nine, while only allowing four hits and two walks. He did allow three runs, although only one was earned as Ian Stewart and Koshansky both committed errors.
Modesto: Samuel Deduno only pitched one inning, giving up two runs, two hits, two walks and K'ing two as well, so I don't know why he was pulled although it's possible he hit his inning pitch limit. Matt Miller went four for four with a pair of two-run extra base hits, one double and one homerun. He had five RBI in all and once again showed that he is ready for a new challenge upstream in the Nuts fifteen to eight loss.
Asheville: Xavier Cedeno got knocked around by a few Braves prospects, and the Tourists lost twelve to two. Eric Young Jr went two for two with a pair of walks, a stolen base (one caught stealing attempt also) and a run scored (22 on the season, 3rd on the team). Dexter Fowler (31, first in the SAL) scored the only other Tourist run.
