Wednesday Pebble Report: High-scoring affairs in Tulsa, Modesto

Colorado Springs,  W 3-2: Matt Murton (3) hit a two-run homer in the sixth and Matt Miller had a solo shot (1) in the fifth. Josh Fogg allowed two runs over six innings and struck out three. Randy Flores threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings.

Tulsa, W 9-3: The Drillers won this game with a five-run fifth inning. Ryan Harvey had an RBI double to start the scoring, and the run-scoring plays after that were a Daniel Carte sac fly (who reached second because Cedric Hunter had a fielding error), a Daniel Mayora single, a Rex Rundgren sac fly (Mayora advanced to second on a missed catch error by Mitch Canham and then stole third), and then Mayora scored on a Dayton Buller single. In the top of the first, Chris Nelson singled in Cole Garner (who doubled).

Samuel Deduno only went four innings, but he struck out seven and allowed only two runs on three hits. The runs scored on a two-run homer. Jon George picked up the win after pitching the next two innings and striking out two. Shane Lindsay and Andrew Johnston both struck out two in their one-inning performances.

Modesto, W 11-3: Stockton scored three runs over the seventh and eighth innings to tie the game at three before the Nuts exploded for eight runs in the ninth. Six of those runs came on two-run singles by Kevin Clark, Mike Mitchell, and Brian Rike. Lars Davis and Maikol Gonzalez knocked in the last two runs. In the third inning, Brian Rike had an RBI double, which was followed by a Radames Nazario two-run single. Nazario advanced to third on two wild pitches, but Lars Davis struck out to end the inning.

Kenneth Durst performed well last night:  6 2/3 IP, 2 H, 1 R/ER, 0 BB, 3 K. Durst left after allowing the run on a sac fly. Sean Jarrett blew the save and picked up the win after watching two runs cross the plate.

Asheville, L 3-4 in 11 innings: Aaron Weatherford allowed the winning run after a walk, followed by a sac bunt, and then the game-winning single. Ethan Hollingsworth did well, allowing two runs in five innings and striking out four. Kurt Yacko blew the save in the ninth when he allowed two singles and then an RBI  ground out.

Jordan Pacheco hit a solo homer (2) in sixth inning and David Christensen drove in two runs that inning on his way to a 2-for-5 night with 2 K. Christensen has struck out on slightly over half of his ABs. Scott Robinson also had two hits and two strikeouts.
