Colorado Springs The Sky Sox lost four to two to Tucson in ten innings. Carlos Quentin did most of the damage against us, getting three hits in five at bats. Jayson Nix had both RBI for the Springs. It's kind of an odd box score as the Sidewinders used six pitchers to keep our team off balance.
Modesto: The other box score showing an odd use of pitchers. Maybe Tucson could send some of their excess of relievers over to our Modesto squad so Glenallen Hill has somebody to turn to when Humberto Cardenas starts getting lit up like that.
Tri-City: Shane Lindsay and company lost their debut, five to three. If it wasn't for the second inning, in which Lindsay walked two, threw two wild pitches and gave up his lone hit, a double, his outing would have been just as dominant as last year. It doesn't look like he's far from moving up, if he can just tighten that control a little. Leadoff hitter Anthony Jackson had a pair of hits, a stolen base and two RBI to lead the offense. Corey Wimberly redux?
