Friday Pebble Report

Colorado Springs, W 8-5: Ian Stewart, Sean Barker, Joe Koshansky and Edwin Bellorin all had doubles in yesterday's contest, with Ko's and Bellorin's each driving in a run in the first inning. Stewart doubled in Q in the third and then Barker doubled in Stewart. Barker (8), Nix (8) and Stewart (3) all swiped a base last night.

Jorge De Paula recorded his fifth win, but had another four-walk game. He walked three in his previous start in a no-decision. Matt Herges struck out four in 2 2/3 innings and Ryan Speier picked up his 13th save.

Tulsa, W 4-3: Matt Miller had a two-run home run in the second inning and Matt Macri double in a run for the Driller in that inning also. Jonathan Herrera hit his 11th double last night and Christian Colonel brought him across home plate.

Samuel Deduno provided a great start for the Drillers as he went 7 1/3 innings and allowed three runs on eight hits. He struck out four and issued one walk in his first win this season. You also have to like the 14-4 GO-FO he put up.

The Tulsa World informs us about Darren Clarke's shoulder stiffness and there's some stuff on Bo McLaughlin and the work he's done with Deduno. Jack Etkin writes about Juan Morillo's transformation and notes that Greg Reynolds should return around June 15.

Modesto, L 7-8: It wasn't a good night for either starter as Alan Johnson failed to finish the fourth inning after allowing six runs on nine hits and opposing pitcher Michael Rogers issued seven walks and allowed six runs. David Patton relieved Jonathan George with a runner on base, allowed him to score and then saw the game-winning run cross the plate shortly thereafter.

The Nuts did well to come back from four runs down to take a 7-6 lead. Neil Wilson had three RBI, two of them by way of bases loaded walks, and Daniel Carte drove in two on a single in the fifth. Cole Garner also drove in a run that inning. EY Jr. had two hits and two stolen bases (26), while Neil Wilson stole his first two of the season and Chris Nelson his sixth. The Nuts played with energy, not expertise, last night.

Asheville, L 4-6: Aneury Rodriguez continues to miss bats as he struck out eight, but he also allowed a homer in each of the first three innings. He allowed five runs (three earned) and walked one in five innings. David Parker came in for the sixth inning and allowed an unearned run to score. Will Harris and Tommy Baumgardner allowed no hits in their one inning appearances.

Bret Berglund had a two-run homer, while Mike Paulk went hitless and had two fielding errors. Jason McGill has a full recap of the game and follows up on Rodriguez and Paulk in a blog entry.
