Colorado Springs: The Sky Sox won eight to four over Salt Lake. Chris Iannetta had his first AAA hits, a single and a double in four at bats and Jeff Baker hit his seventh homerun on the season as one of his two hits. Sunny Kim only allowed six hits and a walk in seven innings, but he only struck out one and didn't seem particularly dominating so it might have been as much a function of luck than anything else.
Tulsa: Jud Thigpen started things off with a solo homerun in the bottom of the second and Ian Stewart finished it with solo homerun in the bottom of the ninth -without anything in the middle- in Tulsa's two to one victory. Steven Register pitched seven solid innings allowing only five hits and one walk while K'ing six. Register didn't pick up the win, leavng that to Joshua Newman who pitched two scoreless innings of relief. As we mentioned last night, the promotions of Ubaldo Jimenez and Manuel Corpas will be made official today.

Tri-City: Daniel Mayora continues to have the brightest start of our Tri-City position players. He hit a three run homerun yesterday and drew a pair of walks, bumping his opening week OPS to .942. The Dust Devils lost -in part because of an error of Mayora's, so it's not all roses- by the final score of six to five.
Casper: The Casper Rockies won six to three. Logan Wiens went four for four Steven Suarez had a big triple, and Riquy De Los Santos and a trio of relievers held Idaho Falls in check in the win.
