Monday Pebble Report

This will be short because I'm later getting home and I want to get to the Purps thread, anyway.
Colorado Springs: Lost four to two. A moderately effective outing by Sandy Nin was laid to waste in the seventh when after Nin was pulled with the bases loaded Randy Williams came in and walked the first two batters he faced. The defense was the story of the game, three runners were gunned down by JD Closser (who also went two for three at the plate), Nin had a pickoff, and three double plays were turned by the Sky Sox as well. The last one ended that seventh inning when Jorge Piedra gunned down the tagging James Loney at the plate, and Closser held on to record the out.

Tulsa: Joe Koshansky went one for one with a double and three walks - that will do nice things for his OBP, but the Drillers lost one to nothing. Despite the low score, it wasn't the best we've seen Ubaldo Jimenez pitch this year, and he lasted only five innings in taking the loss. Nice work by the pen, though.

Modesto: The Nuts lost nine to six. Highlights were Matt Miller's seventh HR (he's tied for the league lead, now) and Corey Wimberly's 18th SB of the year. Doc Brooks also ht two homeruns, and Ryan Mattheus wasn't fooling anybody, but he wasn't walking anybody either.

Asheville: EY Jr is staying neck and neck with Wimberly for the system lead in stolen bases, he also had his eighteenth on the year. Chris Nelson's average is slowly creeping up after a two for three day (with his ninth double of the season) brought him up to .288. Brandon Durden was looking very sharp again through seven innings, getting the win.
