Colorado Springs: Jeff Salazar ht his first homerun of the season, a three run shot in the fifth, and he liked it so well he hit out another three-run bomb in the eighth. I really hope this doesn't go to his head becasue in his minor league past, he'd get pull happy and try to drive the ball out when that doesn't really fit his game. Behind Salazar's six RBI, the Sky Sox wound up winning eleven to four. Through eighty AB's Jeff is really looking solid, we're heading into an interesting conundrum as far as our immediate future in centerfield is concerned.
Tulsa: Ubaldo Jimenez looked like he's more than ready for the coming promotion to AAA, yesterday. In five innings of work U-ball struck out ten, walked three and just allowed one single to Midland. Christian Colonel followed a pair of singles by Joe Gaettis and Joe Koshansky with a three run blast that provided the Drillers all the scoring they would get or need.
Modesto: The Nuts are breaking for their All-Star Game.
Tri-City: Since it is a level above Casper, we're obviously going to watch fifteenth round pick Victor Ferrante's progress. He had two hits yesterday, a homerun in the second, and an RBI single in the eighth that drove in the winning run. Aneury Rodriguez pitched a solid six innings, allowing only four hits and two unearned runs. He walked one and struck out four.
Casper: Casper was blown out of the game early as Ronny Lopez gave up ten runs before being pulled with one out into the second. Afterwards, the relief crew did a serviceable job of holding Orem in check but the final score wound up being thirteen to three. Most notable of the offensive contributions was David Christensen's three for four night, he finished a homerun away from the cycle and scored twice. Helder Velazquez and Hector Gomez also had a pair of hits each, as did veteran DH, Steven Suarez. catcher Austin Rauch got his first professional hit. Ignore the eighteen year old's .071 average until he gets his feet wet.
