Sunday Pebble Report: Brandon Hynick FTW, Delta Cleary stays hot, plus more

New, comments

Colorado Springs: W 7-0 (25-16)

Brandon Hynick (4-3) had quite a game for the Sky Sox, going seven shutout innings and giving up just one hit while striking out four and walking three. Plus, he hit an RBI double to give The Springs a four run lead, and he picked off Reggie Abercrombie at first base to halt a Round Rock rally.  Matt Miller had a big day at the plate, going 4-for-5, and Paul Phillips went 3-for-5 in his last Triple-A game before being called up to the big club. Eric Young Jr., Mike McCoy, and Carlos Gonzalez each contributed two hits, and Damian Moss and newly-acquired Ben Julianel each pitched a scoreless inning of relief in the big win.

Tulsa: L 11-4 (22-19)

Not much to say about this one; Andrew Graham got lit up, giving up six runs on eight hits in four innings. The Drillers only had five hits, and only two of those went for extra bases as Jeff Kindel doubled and Jose Gonzalez homered.

Modesto: L 9-5 (26-17)

Kenneth Durst was touched for seven runs on nine hits in three innings, but the bullpen was pretty solid. Carlos Luna gave up just a run on three hits and had two K's in three innings, and Sean Jarrett struck out two hitters in two scoreless innings. Charles Blackmon and Jeff Cunningham each hit their second home run of the season. Hector Gomez and Jay Cox each picked up two hits in the loss, as well.

Asheville: W 13-1 (16-24)

Parker Frazier picked up his first win of the season after pitching six strong innings. The Tourists did all of their damage without the help of a longball, as five different guys had at least two hits in the game, highlighted by Delta Cleary's 4-for-5 day. Cleary looks like he's starting to swing the bat well, and hopefully he's able to keep it up; he's too good of a player to be mired in the kind of slump he's been in. Tyler Massey and David Christensen each picked up three hits, and third baseman James Cesario picked up two hits to raise his average to .338.
