Saturday Pebble Report: Todd Helton Wins Game For Casper; Samuel Deduno Dominates Everett

Colorado Springs, L 1-5
Greg Smith only gave up one home run last night! But it was a three-run homer. He went four innings and allowed four runs. Eric Young Jr. hit a double and drove in a run.

Tulsa, W 3-1
Broson Sardinha hit his seventh homer of the season in the first inning, and Scott Beerer drove in Jason Van Kooten (who reached on a triple) on a sac fly in the second. Jeff Kindel hit a sac fly in the sixth to score the third run.

Keith Weiser threw seven innings and allowed an unearned run in the sixth inning. He scattered seven hits and struck out two.

Modesto, L 8-16
Josh Sullivan started and allowed six runs in 2+ innings. Kenny Durst allowed three of Sully's runs. But things didn't end there for Durst as he allowed six runs of his own in three innings, and Stephen Dodson gave up four over the last three innings of the game. Nine of Stockton's 16 hits went for extra bases (eight doubles, one homer).

Ryan Peisel hit his fourth homer, and Ben Paulsen, Thomas Field, and Mike Zuanich each drove in a run. Beau Seabury added two RBI, and Scott Robinson stole two bases (25). However, he didn't score a run. The team went 4-for-16 with RISP.

Asheville, W 2-1
Nolan Arenado hit his sixth homer of the season in the second and Eliezer Mesa had an RBI single in the fifth to score the Tourists' runs. Nicholas Schnaitmann allowed a run on a solo homer and went seven innings. He allowed three hits, walked two, and struck out four.

The short-season leagues and video after the jump.

Tri-City, L 0-3 (14 innings)
Clint Tilford allowed a bases loaded triple in the top of the 14th in what had been a tightly pitched before then. The teams combined for seven hits with only two by Tri-City. Hector Gomez hit a single in the first and Leonardo Reyes singled on a bunt attempt in the fourth.

Samuel Deduno threw 4 2/3 scoreless innings, allowed a hit, and struck out 10. Brad McAtee allowed a hit when he came in to finish the fifth inning, but after that Everett didn't get another hit until the 12th inning. Josh Slaats made his pro debut and struck out five in 3 1/3 innings.

Casper, W 2-1
Todd Helton hit the go-ahead RBI in a sac fly in the eighth to put the Rockies up 2-1. In the bottom of the first, Corey Dickerson hit into a ground out to drive in the first run. Albert Campos allowed a run in 5 1/3 innings and struck out six. Blake Keitzman blew the save when he allowed an inherited runner to score, but picked up the win as he pitched the final 3 2/3 innings of the game.
