Friday Pebble Report

Update [2006-6-30 17:23:7 by Rox Fan in NY]: 8 Rox Prospects are now aware of Purple Row as a result of the site's MySpace page. Waiting on a few more guys in the minors to accept and 3 guys on the MLB club.

Colorado Springs: The RMN highlights the recent promotions to the team. Seven of nine Sky Sox players had at least one RBI in the 10-8 loss. Jeff Baker had two and one came off his 8th homer of the season. Shealy DH'ed while recording his 44th RBI. Jon Asahina is now 3-7 after giving up 6 R on 9 H. Ubaldo Jimenez makes his AAA debut tonight.

Tulsa: The Drillers were off last night, but in Troy E. Renck's latest mailbag, he claims that the D'Rays would want Tulo and Francis for Crawford. It sounds more like he is speculating there than that the D'Rays have actually asked for those two.

Update [2006-6-30 13:40:56 by Rox Girl]:
It's Tulo mania lately, this article at MILB goes into more of the same, but does provide some pretty good quotes about his thoughts of what's going on lately:

"Physically I'm fine," Tulowitzki said. "I've had two injuries that were kind of serious over the last two years, and that's why people think it is an issue. Last year I broke my hamate bone and tore my quad, but this year it is just something that everybody goes through during a long season."

Modesto: The offensive woes found their way into the start of the second half of the season as  the Nuts lost 4-1 and only managed 2 hits. Luke Sargent managed a double and Jeff Dragicevich had a single. Ryan Mattheus took his 7th loss after going 5 innings. He allowed 3 R on 4 H. More alarming is that he walked 6 and K'ed only 2.

Asheville: Ahseville won 5-2 as Alan Johnson had his best start in quite some time. He went 7 innings, allowed 2 R on 6 H and K'ed 4. Travis Becktel had a nice night by collecting 2 hits, 2 RBI and his 19th RBI. Daniel Carte hit his 8th homer and now has 40 RBI.

Tri-City: It was a pitcher's duel last night between Tri-City and Boise. Dust Devils hitters got the better of Cubs' 2005 first round pick Mark Pawelek since he allowed the only run of the game. Shane Lindsay started for Tri-City and went 6 innings and K'ed 7. Ethan Katz recorded the win after working 2 innings and K'ed 3. Anthony Jackson collected the only RBI by driving in Ramon Rodriguez. Michael McKenry also had 2 hits.

Casper: The Rockies scored early but not often. The Chukars, however, did score early and often. A run in the top of the 9th was not enough as the game ended 7-6 in favor of the Chukars. Jhaysson Agustin and Hector Gomez both had 2 RBI in the contest and Radames Nazario added 1 RBI. For Gomez that was 3 more hits, his first double and RBIs #6 and #7. Brandon Hynick lasted 4 innings, K'ed 4 and saw 5 R (3 ER) cross home plate.
