Colorado Springs: Denny Bautista ran into trouble by singles and one bases clearing Eric Riggs triple in the third inning where he gave up four runs, but other than that, he was pretty dominant. He finished with six innings pitched, five runs allowed, nine hits one walk and eight K's (four runs, four hits and the walk came in the one inning.) For the offense, Sean Barker continues his late surge, he hit his twelfth homerun and had two hits. Jeff salazar doubled for the only other Sky Sox extra base hit.

Tulsa: Extra base hits weren't a problem for the Drillers, even without Troy Tulowitzki. Homeruns were hit by Jeff Dragicevich, Seth Smith, Ian Stewart, Alvin Colina and Christian Colonel. In fact, Colonel hit two. Add in doubles by Czar and Gaetti and you can get a sense of the pounding done by the Drillers last night. Smith's August numbers are now right around what he did in July, and he has definitely reasserted himself as a prime prospect these last two months. Meanwhile, Joe Koshansky has cooled off a bit. Next season should be interesting to see where the two take things. Still, the one minor league player with probably the most to prove in 2007 will be Ian Stewart, but don't tell him that, I think pressing for the big hit has been part of his trouble this year. Juan Morillo went seven and struck out nine, with one walk and four hits allowed (including two HR). In August he has now pitched 37 and a third innings with 44 K's and 20 BB's, and only 29 H.

Modesto: Sammy the Bull needed to get back on track in his last start of 2006, BA put him on the "Not so Hot" list this week, so his seven inning, six hit, four K and 2 BB performance while not spectacular was a better way to end things. The Nuts wound up losing depsite two homeruns from hammerin' Izzy Valdez. Just kidding, that's not his nickname, but if he plays like he did last night next year, maybe it should be.

Twenty runs in three innings for the Tourists. No, Kannapolis didn't come back after that.

Tri-City: Josh Sullivan allowed six walks, the most he's allowed all season, but he also K'd nine in five and a third innigs and only gave up two hits and two runs. Sean Jarret was saddled with the loss after leaving with the bases loaded in the eighth, and having all three inherited runners come around to score. Jeff Kindel had two hits to support the offensive cause.

Casper: The Casper Rockies won! Well, maybe a moral victory, but they actually lost for the fifth time in a row. Eight to three, sorry to get your hopes up.
