Monday Pebble Report

Wins all through the organization yesterday, a trend I hope we see continue for the next month or two.

Colorado Springs: Jeff Baker went three for three with a double and a walk, knocking in two and scoring one. Omar Quintanilla also scored twice out of the leadoff spot and Ryan Shealy, Sean Barker and Jorge Piedra all provided run scoring doubles in the six to four Sky Sox win. Apparently Justin Hampson is starting again, at least temporarily, and he picked up the victory after going six and a third, allowing all four runs on six hits and three walks with five K's.

Tulsa: A balanced attack throughout Tulsa's lineup provided the O in the Drillers five to two win. The only non-pitcher to not get a hit was Joe Gaetti, and he walked twice and scored. The big hit was Joe Koshansky's bases loaded double in the bottom of the third, giving him his three RBI on the day. For his other three at bats, Koshansky whiffed, showing that despite the tear he's been on, he does have some progress to be made. Marc Kaiser was definitely lucky on the mound, he "scattered" ten hits and two walks over seven innings, only allowing two runs despite that. Tulsa's end of game relievers, Jim Miller and Manuel Corpas came in to finish the job a little more efficiently after Kaiser left.

Modesto: One of Matt Miller's two hits knocked in his fiftieth RBI on the season, he is the first in the organization to reach that figure. That run would have been all Ryan Mattheus needed (the Nuts scored a total of four) as he pitched a complete game shutout, allowing only seven hits and two walks to go along with his five K's. Mattheus' 15/6 GB/FB ratio helped show that he was on again in this up (mostly, thankfully) and down season.

Asheville: Brandon Durden also had one of his best outings of the season, going seven innings and allowing only three hits and one walk. He also had six K's as the Tourists won six to three. Travis Becktel showed signs of breaking out of his month-long slum by going two for three with a double and walk. Asheville hitters had a total of five doubles on the day.
