Colorado Springs: Once again, postponed due to snow.

Tulsa, L 0-2: Franklin Morales picked up his second loss of the season, but in no way did he let the victory slip away from the team. In 6 1/3 IP, he allowed 2/1 R/ER on four hits, while he walked one and struck out three. He retired the first six batters he faced before giving up a double to start the third and after hitting the lead-off batter in the bottom of the fourth, he retired the next ten batters. Juan Morillo struck out one in one inning of work.

The bats fell silent last night as Chris Frey and Aaron Rifkin were the only Drillers to muster a hit. The team struck out eight times.

Modesto, W 8-5: The batting order for the Nuts witnessed a shakeup last night as Dexter Fowler and Eric Young switched spots in the lineup. As the lead-off man, Fowler reached base three times, a homer, a walk and a single. The RBI single in the ninth gave the Nuts the go-ahead run. EY Jr. stole his fourth base of the season and Cole Garner recorded his second on the season in the ninth inning. Travis Becktel hit his first homer of the season, a three-run shot in the third. Brandon Durden has another shaky start as he allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings. He also walked three and struck out two. David Patton picked up the blown save and his first win of the season, while he struck out four in two innings. Andrew Johnston notched his second save.

Asheville, W 9-3: Keith Weiser recorded his second win of the season last night in a high-scoring affair for the Tourists. He scattered seven hits and allowed two runs in 6 2/3 IP. Hector Gomez hit his first home run of the season in the opening frame last night, but also stuck out twice. Jay Cox had two hits and an RBI, but struck out three times. Michael McKenry hit a double and a triple, while taking a walk. He did not strike out. Michael Paulk had three RBI last night and had no strikeouts.

Jason McGill points out in his latest blog entry that while the Tourists are tied for first in strikeouts, they are also second in the league for walks.


There aren't many news and interesting articles for a Rockpile today, but if there are, maybe Rox Girl will put them up before I get back in the afternoon.

Update [2007-4-13 13:33:3 by Russ]: John Manuel of Baseball America will chat about anything baseball-related at 3 pm. Get you Rockies-related questions in early and often.
