The Springs: Off day for the PCL. Jayson Nix is the subject of Jack Etkin's latest Farm Report.
Tulsa, L 4-10: Jonathan Herrera and Matt Macri combined for half of the Drillers' 10 hits last night, with two of Herrera's three hits going for doubles. Ching-Lung Lo went 4 2/3 innings, allowed eight runs, and walked and struck out four. He also allowed three homers.
Modesto, L 7-11: It was an atypical night for Alan Johnson as he allowed eight runs and walked six over six innings. Justin Nelson continued his home run barrage after hitting his 11th last night. Neil Wilson also hit a homer, and Eric Young drove in two runs.
Asheville, W 6-1: Esmil Rogers limited Hagerstown to one run over seven innings and struck out five. He also walked three. Geoff Strickland (on a homer), Hector Gomez (on a triple), Daniel Mayora, Mike McKenry (on a homer), Matt Repec (on a homer), and Jay Cox each drove in a run.
Tri-City, W 6-2: Cory Riordan went five innings, allowed a run, and struck out three. Mike Mitchell drove in both runs on a triple after Corey Brown failed to catch the ball on a dive. He also stole two more bases (20 for the season). Brian Rike stole his fourth base, and Philip Cuadrado hit a homer.
Casper, L 1-6: Bobby Paschal started the game but only lasted a third of an inning. He allowed five runs on only two hits because he had four wild pitches. Edgmer Escalona came in for 3 2/3 innings and struck out five. Kenny Durst went for the next three innings and struck out three. The offense managed five singles, one from each of the first four batters.
