Sunday Pebble Report: CarGo homers, Robinson Fabian feels JDLR's pain

Colorado Springs: L 5-6 (18-10)

Damian Moss and Steven Register had poor outings out of the bullpen, causing the Sky Sox to blow a late three run lead and lose to Tacoma, spoiling a solid effort by starter Franklin Nunez. In the loss, Carlos Gonzalez hit a two-run homer (3) that put the Sky Sox up by three runs at the time. Chris Frey also homered (1) to get the Sky Sox on the board - one of three hits on the afternoon for "The Hair."

Tulsa: W 7-6 (15-13)

The Drillers got two hits apiece from Anthony Jackson, Daniel Mayora, Mike Paulk, and Daniel Carte, and Ryan Harvey hit a two-out, three run homer in the bottom of the fifth to give Tulsa the lead for good. Starting pitcher Samuel Deduno scattered 7 hits and 6 runs (only one earned) - all of the latter in the fifth inning - while walking three and striking out five in five innings, and came away with the win, which was largely due to the dominance of the bullpen. Jon George hurled three perfect innings, striking out three, and Andrew Johnston pitched a perfect ninth, striking out two and picking up save number 8.

Modesto: L 1-2 (19-10)

The Nuts were shut down offensively, largely by San Jose's bullpen, as they followed the lead of the big league club and lost a tight one. Modesto's pen was okay themselves - combining for 5.2 innings of scoreless baseball (while allowing only one hit and one walk) - but the offense wasn't able to take advantage. Michael Mitchell was just about the only high point at the plate for the Nuts, collecting two hits. Charlie Blackmon had an RBI triple as well, but that was just about it for Modesto.

Asheville: L 0-2 (13-16)

The Toursits were held to three hits, as the lack of offense negated Robinson Fabian's brilliant start. Fabian threw seven innings and gave up 2 runs on 5 hits, but did not walk anybody and struck out 10 batters. The two runs came on a two-out, two run home run in the seventh inning by Charleston's Melky Mesa. Jonnathan Aristil pitched a hitless inning of relief and Jordan Pacheco, Kiel Roling, and David Christensen each had a single in the ballgame.
