Saturday Pebble Report: Juan Nicasio Is Better Than Jeremy Affeldt

Colorado Springs, L 2-5
Johnny Herrera hit a triple and a solo homer in the loss; Mike Paulk hit his sixth homer of the season; and Andrew Johnston allowed two runs in the eighth inning.

Tulsa, L 5-11
Kiel Roling hit a solo homer in the sixth inning for his 12th of the season. Hector Gomez had a double and an RBI, but struck out three times. Scott Beerer went 3-for-4 with a run scored.

Brandon Durden allowed six runs in four innings, and Chris Malone allowed three over the next 1 1/3 inning. Al Alburquerque pitched a scoreless 1 2/3 innings, but Stuart Pomeranz couldn't follow suit. He allowed two runs in the eighth.

Modesto, W 6-1
We saw our old friend Jeremy Affeldt on the mound for San Jose last night. He went an inning, allowed two hits, and struck out one. But Juan Nicasio outdid him over eight innings. Nicasio allowed one unearned run on six hits and struck out eight. Ben Paulsen led the offense, falling a homer short of the cycle. Paulsen, Thomas Field, Tim Wheeler, Johnny Bowden (on a homer), and David Christensen each drove in a run.

The rest after the jump.

Asheville, W 4-2
Nolan Arenado's eighth homer of the season broke the 2-2 tie in the eighth inning. Delta Cleary Jr. had two doubles and scored a run. Pete Ruiz struck out 11 Tourists. Tyler Matzek allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in five innings. He struck out six. Leuris Gomez, Paul Bargas, and Sheng-An Kuo held Greenville hitless over the final four innings.

Tri-City, W 4-1
Chandler Laurent led the game off with a homer. Chad Jacobsen had a two-run double in the eighth inning and tried to stretch that double into a triple. However, he was thrown out at third. Edwar Cabrera allowed a run on seven hits and three walks in seven innings. He struck out five.

Casper, L 3-13
Ricardo Ferrer made it through 1 2/3 innings and then left having allowed eight runs (six earned). Six of the eight runs scored in the second. Matthew Crocker gave up five runs in the seventh inning. Cristhian Adames had a double and an RBI. Brett Tanos hit a triple and scored a run. The Ghosts committed seven errors.

DSL Rockies, L 3-4 (13 innings)
