Colorado Springs: L 2-13
I believe Matt Macri is the first position player in the system this year to take the mound, Macri pitched the eighth inning in a blowout loss to Reno for the Sky Sox yesterday, allowing a solo home run to John Hester, but getting three quick outs otherwise. At the plate as the starting third baseman, he went zero for four. Matt Pagnozzi was the only Colorado Springs player with multiple hits, while starter Josh Mueke and reliever Geno Espinelli were the pitchers to give up multiple runs. Matt Daley pitched against the Aces for the fourth consecutive time and in those four IP, he's allowed no runs on two hits, no walks and four K's. Mike Jacobs hit his third home run of the season.
Tulsa: L 1-8
Rob Scahill and Casey Weathers combined to give up seven of Corpus Christi's eight runs in their 5 2/3 innings pitched. The Drillers offense was limited to four hits.
Modesto: W 10-6
The Nuts avoided saddling us with a humiliating "Night of the Franchise Sweep" by coming up with a win at Stockton, thanks in large part to a six run seventh inning. Kent Matthes led the way with his first home run of the year and a double, and three runs scored. The best pitching was done by the bullpen, as Chad Rose, Michael Marbry and Sheng An Kuo limited the Ports to one run on three hits over the final four and a third innings.
Asheville: L 7-13
Corey Dickerson finished a triple short of a cycle and scored twice to fuel the Tourists offense, but it wasn't enough as the team's pitching collapsed at McCormick Field. Starter Erik Stavert gave up seven runs, including three home runs, and Josh Hungerman couldn't stop the bleeding upon replacing him as Lexington rolled to victory.
