Saturday Pebble Report: In case you didn't know, Chris Balcom-Miller is good

Colorado Springs, W 4-3
Eric Young Jr. went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored, and Matt Murton drove in two. Adam Eaton did not start the game, but he pitched six innings, allowed two runs, and struck out four.

Tulsa, L 3-4
Samuel Deduno walked six and struck out nine in 5 2/3 innings before Al Alburquerque walked two and allowed a run over the next 1 1/3 innings. Most the batters had two hits each last night with Rex Rundgren, Mike Paulk, and Ryan Harvey each hitting doubles and Darin Holcomb a triple. Holcomb's triple looked good as it came in the ninth with one out, but back-to-back strikeouts ended the game.

Modesto, L 7-8
Ethan Hollingsworth ran into trouble during the fourth inning by allowing four runs. He walked four and struck out five over four innings. Ching-Lung Lo allowed another two and Austin Chambliss the eighth run. The latter also walked three.

Jay Cox hit a three-run homer in the ninth to bring the game to within one, but Maikol Gonzalez was thrown out at second. Charlie Blackmon had two hits, one being his 22nd double, and stole his 22nd base.

Asheville, W 9-7
Juan Nicasio was another Rockies' farmhand to have trouble with a four-run inning. This one came in the third, but we was fine for the next two innings before exiting. He struck out four and allowed the other earned run on a first-inning homer. Stephen Dodson and Isaiah Froneberger allowed no hits and walked none over the next three innings. Tyler Trice allowed two earned runs when Adam Jorgenson put them across home plate.

Jordan Pacheco went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI. Kiel Roling lone hit was a solo homer in the third inning, his 12th on the season. He also walked twice. Ryan Peisel had two hits and two RBI. Delta Cleary took his 26th stolen base.

Tri-City, L 1-2
Sheng-An Kup allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in four innings. Rex Brothers pitched the last two innings of the game and struck out five. Kent Matthes hit a double and Alex Feinberg drove in the only run for Tri-City.

Casper, L 0-1
Casper finished the game with 10 hits. Orem had six. The winning run scored when Jared Clark committed a fielding error in the bottom of the ninth.

The good news? Chris Balcom-Miller continued his dominance over the Pioneer League. He allowed three hits in six innings and struck out 11.
