Colorado Springs, W 11-9
Dan Ortmeier led the 13-hit parade with four of them, scoring twice. Matt Miller knocked in three runs on his way to a 2-for-5 performance. Matt Murton knocked out two doubles, and Mike McCoy had no hits, drove in two, and walked three times.
Alan Johnson allowed five runs on 11 hits and a walk in six innings. Damian Moss was the offending party in allowing the other four runs to score.
Tulsa, W 10-2
The heart of the Tulsa lineup let loose last night. Mike McKenry, Darin Holcomb, and Cole Garner each had multi-hit games involving homers. McKenry went 2-for-3, scored twice, and drove in two runs (one on the solo shot). Holcomb scored twice and had a solo shot. Cole Garner collected three hits (one of which was a two-run homer) and scored three times. Daniel Mayora also had three hits and drove in two runs.
Keith Weiser went six innings and scattered ten hits that led to two runs crossing home plate. He struck out three. Adam Bright, Austin Chambliss, and Andrew Johnston each struck out one in their innings of work.
Modesto, L 2-5
Radames Nazario and Matt Repec each hit their second home runs of the season in the loss. Connor Graham went four scoreless innings before encountering trouble in the next two frames. He allowed five runs over the fifth and six innings and ended up with three walks and four strikeouts.
Asheville, L 3-11
Jonnathan Aristil was roughed in the third inning, watching five of the six Greenville runs he allowed to score then. His exit paved the way for Alan Deratt in the fourth and fifth innings. Deratt surrendered a three-run homer.
Ryan Peisel hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, his first of the season. The Tourists struck out 13 times last night.
Tri-City Dust Devils
Rockies set to assign first-round pick to NWL | The News Tribune
2009 draft picks Tim Wheeler, Rex Brothers, Ben Paulsen, Kent Matthes, and Joe Sanders will all head to Tri-City once they sign. It also mentions that Tyler Matzek would head to Casper, not surprisingly, but I doubt Matzek signs in time to pitch this year.
