The Springs, L 0-1: You don't see many outcomes like this one while at Security Service Field. Bobby Keppel allowed that one run, unearned on a Koshansky fielding error, in the eighth inning.
Tulsa, W 9-7: Hopefully last night was a bottoming out of sorts for Samuel Deduno, who has been up-and-down this season. He went 1/3 of an inning, allowed six runs on three hits, and walked four. For the next 8 1/3 innings, the bullpen held the RockHounds to four hits and one run. Juan Morillo, who should be with the team in September, allowed one hit in tow innings before Steven Register picked up his 34th save.
Matt Miller drove in five runs on two doubles and a single.
Modesto, L 1-11: Brandon Durden allowed nine runs, four earned, in six innings. Two Jose Valdez errors and a Justin Nelson error contributed to the runs allowed. James Burok in his third appearance for Modesto struck out two on one inning of work. Eric Young had the only multi-hit game of the night and drove in the only Nuts run of the night.
Asheville, L 2-6: Both runs came of homers: Daniel Mayora's 13th and Matt Repec's seventh. Andy Graham struck out six, but allowed four runs in six innings. Casey Weathers, though he didn't strike out a batter, pitched a perfect eighth inning.
Tri-City, W 10-6: Brian Rike lead the offense last night with a 4-for-4 night, three runs scored, two doubles, three RBI, and his fifth stolen base. Philip Cuadrado and Lars Davis each drove in two. Robinson Fabian and Joey Williamson allowed five runs in over the first six runs before Connor Graham appeared the second time this season. He went two innings, allowed one hit (a solo home run), walked one and struck out three. It was a step up from his first relief apperance when he allowed three runs on four hits in one inning.
Casper, L 7-8: David Christensen hit his fifth homer and Pedro Sandoval had his first. James Sims, appearing in only his fourth game this season after recovering from an injury, had his first two RBI of the season. The pitching was bland last night, except for Randall Taylor. He struck out two in the eighth, lowering his ERA to 0.47.
