Colorado Springs: Clint Barmes hit his seventh homerun of the season and singled and Seth Smith hit two more doubles to fuel the Sky Sox in a four to two win over Sacramento. Mike Esposito got the W with six innings and a decent GB rate despite walking four.
Tulsa: Dragon Lo continued an up and down season with one of his up games and Jonathan Herrera went three for three (all singles) in Tulsa's five to four win. A four run fifth inning was the big blow for the Drillers, and the bullpen held up the rest of the way.
Modesto: Two more hits and a walk for Eric Young, but no stolen bases yesterday in the eight ot seven loss for the Nuts against High Desert. Chris Nelson hit a triple and walked, and Jose Valdez and Lino Garcia both had big games including homeruns. Pitching wasn't quite as effective, although starter Chaz Roe had nice peripherals (7/2 K/BB) despite giving up five runs.
Asheville: The Tourists' lost four to two, with the big highlight being Brian Fuentes' perfect one inning rehab appearance in which he struck out two. Esmil Rogers had a so-so start and took the loss after allowing three runs in six innings.
Tri-City: Everth Cabrera doubled and tripled and Brian Rike singled twice to push the Dust Devils to six runs in yesterday's contest, however, starter Drew Coffey allowed seven and happy endings for the home team usually don't work that way.
Casper: Jonnathan Aristil's three inning, two hit, five K performance in relief of Robert Paschal was probably the best part of this four to one Casper loss. Meanwhile, Randall Taylor is quietly putting up a stellar season out of the pen for Casper. Beau Seabury was the only Casper player with more than one hit on offense.
