Colorado Springs: The Sky Sox lost yesterday, eight to one. Bobby Keppel hasn't been having a very nice season thus far in the Rockies' organization, yesterday he gave up ten hits, three walks and six runs in a little over five innings' worth of work. This wasn't atypical of his starts, and it's not like he's got the talent of a Ubaldo Jimenez worth waiting around for. It seems to me he's an option to let go should we need a slot in the rotation there to prime somebody else. Joe Koshansky had two more hits, neither were for extra bases again, and Omar Quintanilla also got two in the loss.
Tulsa: Postponed due to rain.
Modesto: Pedro Strop had a rare meltdown and allowed the go ahead runs to score in last night's four to two loss. Brandon Durden pitched seven innings and allowed just two runs on three hits, but he also walked three and only struck out one. This was very similar to his last start, as he seems to be developing into a craftier than high A hitters lefty, but I'm not sure how this will carry over to more advanced levels without more K's. EY, Chris Nelson, and Jeff Kindel all had two hits, Phillip Cuadrado had one and two walks.
Asheville: Keith Weiser apparently hit his wall after eight games, as for the second start in a row after looking dominant, he looked very hittable. Wieser gave up eight hits in five innings, including two homeruns, and also walked a pair and hit three batters in an ugly, ugly start for him and unsurprisingly the Tourists lost, ten to one. Let's hope the Asheville coaches can fix this, whatever it is that's happening.
