Sunday Pebble Report: Hynick stymies Omaha while Rogers does the same to Arkansas, Ryan Speier has a rough inning of rehab, more.

Colorado Springs: W 9-3 (21-14)

Brandon Hynick threw 6 2/3 innings of solid work, giving up 2 runs and six hits, while walking four and striking out five. Former Salt Lake Bee Matt Wilhite tossed a scoreless inning of relief for the Sky Sox as well, and the bats did their part to make sure the pitching performance wasn't spoiled. Mike McCoy had four hits and four RBI's, Dan Ortmeier contributed three singles, and Matt Miller and Jon Herrera had two hits apiece.

Tulsa: W 3-2 (19-16)

Esmil Rogers did his best to one-up his AAA counterpart, tossing 6 2/3 effective innings of his own, allowing two runs on 6 hits with 2 walks and 4 K's. Andrew Johnston notched his 11th save after throwing a scoreless ninth in which he walked a batter and struck one out. Career minor leaguer Rex Rundgren had two hits for the Drillers, raising his batting average to .173, and Tulsa got RBI doubles out of Anthony Jackson and Daniel Mayora for good measure.

Modesto: L 3-1 (21-15)

Maikol Gonzalez tripled with one out in the bottom of the first (one of his three hits in the game), then scored on an RBI ground out by Hector Gomez, and it was about all the offense the Nuts had in this game. San Jose's Angel Villalona hit a two-run homer off of Brandon Durden in the fourth, and a rehabbing Ryan Speier was lucky to escape with only one run scored against him after allowing three hits and a walk in the 8th inning.

Asheville: Suspended due to rain; ahead 3-1 in the 4th inning (14-20)

Scott Robinson was 2-2 with a triple, RBI, and a run scored, and Thomas Field added an RBI single as well. Parker Frazier gave up a run on 4 hits, with 3 walks and 2 strikeouts, before the game was called. Their game today was postponed as well, so both games are scheduled to be made up tomorrow.
