Saturday Pebble Report: Lonely Night For Tri-City As Pitching Fails Elsewhere

Colorado Springs, L 5-9
Cole Garner went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, a double, and a two-run homer. Chris Nelson also drove in two and had three hits. Chaz Roe pitched 5+ innings and allowed six runs on 11 hits and three walks. Matt Wilhite inherited three runners from Roe in the fifth and allowed two to score without recording any outs. Scott Rice entered and allowed all three of his inherited runners to score. Franklin Morales and Juan Rincon each pitched a scoreless inning.

Tulsa, L 0-13
Greg Reynolds took the mound last night, allowed eight runs (three on solo homers), and left after four innings. Rex Brothers didn't shine either. In the eighth inning, Brothers allowed a two-run double and left the game a little while later with the bases loaded. Stuart Pomeranz came in and allowed all three inherited runners to score on a double. The offense had three hits.

Modesto, L 6-10
Normally, you'd think a team hitting four home runs in a game would give them a pretty good shot at winning the game. However, it wasn't good enough for Modesto last night. Thomas Field (13), Tim Wheeler (9) Jordan Pacheco (5), and Ryan Peisel (3) each hit a home run to score five of the six runs (Pacheco also singled in a run).

Juan Nicasio allowed four of his six runs before entering the sixth inning. He left after recording one out and with two men out. Stephen Dodson allowed those two runners to score and gave up three more runs on his own. In all, the pitching staff allowed Brian Pelligrini to drive in four runs, Lee Cruz three, Brandon Barnes two, and Andrew Simunic one.

Asheville, L 4-10
Jared Clark hit his 15th homer of the season and Tyler Massey drove in two. Jonathan Vargas allowed two runs on a homer in 3 2/3 innings before leaving the game. Dan Perkins saw eight runs score over the fifth and six innings, five scoring on two home runs. In this series the Tourists pitching staff has faced and will continue to face Sequoyah Stonecipher. He's 5-for-9 so far this series.

Tri-City, W 3-0
Josh Hungerman struck out eight and allowed only two hits in five innings. After he left, Eric Federico, Kraig Sitton, and Craig Bennigson kept Eugene off the board for the final three innings of the game. Bennigson allowed Eugene's third hit of the night in the ninth inning.

Casper, L 1-8
Christian Bergman allowed five runs (three on a homer) in the third inning and did not come back out for the fourth inning. Nelson Gonzalez pitched the fourth and struck out two. In the fifth inning, Bruce Kern surrendered two solo shot gopher balls. Corey Dickerson hit a home run in the sixth inning for Casper's only run of the night. Cristhian Adames went 3-for-4 with two doubles.
