Colorado Springs: Joe Koshansky, Alvin Colina, and Seth Smith all showed signs of adjusting to AAA last night, each getting on base three times and each including an extra base knock in the process. Ryan Spilborghs also had two hits and scored twice, raising his average to .359 on the season thus far. Ian Stewart's hitting streak was snapped, but he did walk and score in the ten to six victory over the Dodgers affiliate in Las Vegas.
Tulsa: The Texas League was off for travel yesterday, but today marks the 30th Anniversary of the Drillers' initial home game and the Tulsa World has a history of the Driller nickname.
Modesto: The Nuts lost four to three to San Jose, four to three. Chaz Roe couldn't get through any of his four innings without allowing at least two baserunners, and the Giants did all of their scoring off of him in the first two frames. On offense, Cole Garner hit his first California League homerun on a two for four night and collected two RBI.
Asheville: The Tourists won three to two as Daniel Mayora went four for four stealing bases and scored two of the three Asheville runs. Daniel now has five SB's on the year, one behind Anthony Jackson, who stole his sixth last night while going two for three with a double and a walk. The team on the whole cut down to just five strikeouts while at the plate yesterday, which is a very good sign considering they regularly top a dozen. Zach Simons came on solidly in relief of Andrew Kreidermacher to pick up the victory. Kreidermacher was a last minute sub-in, as it was Aneury Rodriguez's regular turn to start, and given his early struggles it might be just to better prep him for Single A. According to Jason McGill, there are a lot of Rockies front office types in Asheville right now, and McGill indicates they might have helped make the decision.
