Colorado Springs: The Sky Sox split a double header yesterday losing the first game eight to four but rallying to win the second seven to five. Ubaldo Jimenez was wild in the first game and got chased after giving up one run and leaving the bases loaded with two outs in the sixth. Steve Colyer came on and preceded to allow each of the inherited runners to score, two by walking them in. Jeff Baker hit a homerun and triple in the second game to lead the offensive charge. Baker's been having quite a week since the AAA all-star break, with three homeruns a triple and two doubles among his eight hits, thirteen RBI a few walks and seven runs scored.
Tulsa: Joe Koshansky hit his twenty-fourth homerun. He and Troy Tulowitzki each got two hits, but that was about the lone highlight of the seven to two loss.
Modesto: The Nuts lost to Evan Longoria and the visiting Visalia Oaks seven to six in eleven innings last night. Dragon Lo had a very solid start giving up just one run on four hits in six innings with seven K's, but Scott Beerer in particular couldn't put the lid on things. Jonathan Herrera doubled, walked three times and stole three bases.
Asheville: Phillip Cuadrado hit his eighth homerun and Jason Van Kooten and Cole Garner both had multi-hit games to help key the offense in this seven to six win. Brandon Durden kept things close through five innings, giving up three runs on a wild night. He walked four and allowed seven hits. I've decided that Andrew Johnston must be one of the least effective pitchers in the system at keeping runners close, three steals off him in one and a third is more egregious than the three off Durden in five. The Tourists went two for three on the night with Van Kooten getting one SB and EY getting one and a CS. Dexter Fowler continues to slump a bit, going zero for five but he got to show off his cannon arm with an outfield assist at home.
Tri-City: In the only home day game of the season for the Dust Devils, they lost.
Casper: The Casper Rox also lost, seven to one. Hector Gomez was hitless, but walked twice and scored the lone run.
