My latest farm report at the Rocky Mountain News is about Aneury Rodriguez.
Colorado Springs: L 7-3
Joe Koshansky hit his fifth homerun and Jonathan Herrera had a pair of hits, but not much else went well for the Sky Sox yesterday against Mark DiFelice. Victor Zambrano's line was ugly, but we kind of expect that.
Tulsa: L 4-2
Matt Miller had four hits, but no other Driller got more than one and Daniel Carte's double was the only hit that went for extra bases. Former Driller and Rockies farmhand Jordan Czarniecki hit two doubles and walked twice playing against us.
Modesto: L 3-1
Esmil Rogers lasted into the sixth without giving up a run. He started to flag at that point, however, giving up all three Bakersfield runs in the next inning and a third. No Nut had more than one hit, and the lone run came on a pair of throwing errors in the ninth inning.
Asheville: W 16-1
The news was a bit brighter here, obviously, as the Tourists improved to 6-1 on their current ten game road trip. Michael Mitchell had four hits including a homerun and double. Brian Rike, Kevin Clark, Jeff Cunningham and Everth Cabrera all added three hits, Rike and Clark hitting the other Tourist homeruns on the night. Rike also added his second triple of the year, Clark and Cunningham had doubles. Darin Holcomb and Helder Velazquez each had two hits as well. Sheng an Kuo had a pretty sharp outing, allowing eight baserunners in seven and two thirds innings and generating fourteen groundouts.
