[editor's note, by Russ] Rox Girl is running a bit late with "Scaling the Rox" today it appears.
Colorado Springs, L 1-2: Joe Koshansky walked twice and Ian Stewart added two more singles to his hit total. Marc Kaiser made his first AAA start and did well for himself as he pitched six innings, scattered five hits with only one run crossing home plate. Denny Bautista came in for an inning and allowed no hits or runs.
Tulsa, W 6-3, L 3-10: Tim Olson hit a 2-run triple in the ninth yesterday to lift the Drillers to victory in the completion of Friday's suspended game. Olson had another RBI in the regularly scheduled game in the first and Jeff Dragicevich drove in two in the first inning on his way to a 3-hit game. The Drillers struck out ten times. Ching-Lung Lo allowed five runs on four hits in four innings. He also walked four, struck out three and allowed two homers.
Modesto, L 2-11: No Nuts player was able to get an extra base hit last night, resulting in five singles. In the second inning, Travis Becktel connected with a ball to the outfield for a 2-run single. In his third round with Modesto, Tomas Santiago made his first start this season after three relief appearances. He went three innings and saw fours runs cross home plate, while he walked three and struck out three. Daric Merrell didn't fare much better in the next two innings as he had four runs cross the plate as well. Pedro Strop came in for the last inning and struck out one.
Asheville, W 5-4: Look at what team can win a 5-4 game, even after a 33-minute rain delay. Daniel Mayora drove in four runs on two hits, an RBI single in the first, a sac fly in the sixth, and a 2-run single in the 8th when the team was down 4-2. Three of the RBI came with two outs already in the book. Hector Gomez recorded two doubles and Michael Paulk walked twice. The Tourists struck out 10 times. Up until the 7th inning, Simon Ferrer had done well but gave up four runs in his final frame of the night. Two of Ferrer's four walks came back-to-back in the seventh. He also struck out three with a GO-AO at 10-5. Craig Baker notched his second save of the season, walked one and stuck out one.
