Tuesday Pebble Report:

Colorado Springs: Since the Ryan Shealy trade, what's the over/under on how many days before a Joe Koshansky call-up? Anyway, the Sky Sox didn't need either last night to pound out an eight to four win over Memphis. Colorado Springs only had eight hits, but also benefitted from nine walks from Dennis Tankersly and the rest of the Redbird pitching crew. Jayson Nix homered and drew two of those BB's, while Jeff Salazar and Ryan Spilborghs also had nice days at the dish.

Tulsa: The Drillers offense remains a thing of mystical beauty, cranking out twelve runs on fifteen hits, including four HR's last night. Seth Smith went four for six with one of those homers, Ian Stewart and Christian Colonel each belted out one apiece, and Tino Sanchez's was a Grand Slam. Matt Miller was zero for one in a pinch-hitting role. Now that the trade deadline has passed without Jeff Baker getting moved, the logjam in the outfield in our upper system becomes more pronounced.

Modesto: No game yesterday.

Asheville: The Tourists won five to four. Shane Lindsay was wild and erratic in three and a third, but left only giving up three runs despite walking five and allowing four hits. EY Jr and Phillip Cuadrado each had a pair of hits, including homeruns.

Tri-City: Aneury Rodriguez continues to establish himself as a bright spot in the system, giving up four hits and a run with four K's in five innings. Jeff Kindel homered and doubled and Daniel Mayora went two for five with two runs scored.

Casper: Robinson Fabian and a trio of relievers comined to two hit Ogden in a five to nothing win. Fabian had a great 12-3 GB/FB ratio in his six innings. Pedro Strop had his second straight outing where all three outs he recorded were by strikeout. In his last four appearances combined he's pitched six innings, given up two hits and a walk, zero runs, and struck out ten. He hasn't allowed a run since July 15, and lowered his ERA from 4.50 to 2.08 in that span. David Christensen and Everth Cabrera each drew two walks, a very positive sign for two talented free swingers, and Helder Velazquez had three hits.
