Friday Pebble Report: Tri-City, DSL Rockies Lonely Winners

Colorado Springs, L 6-7
Chris Nelson hit a three-run homer run (6) in the third inning, which saw Alfredo Amezaga hit one to lead off the inning. Eric Young Jr. drove in two as part of a 3-for-4 night.

Clayton Mortensen was roughed up for six runs over 4.1 innings, including three runs on two homers in the third.

Tulsa, L 1-5
Tulsa led 1-0 after Thomas Field doubled in Brian Rike (who doubled to reach base) during the bottom of the third inning. And it was that way until the top of the seventh inning. Dan Houston had reached 6.2 innings and allowed one run before Dustin Molleken entered and proceeded to allow the inherited runner to score as well as two of his own. Casey Weathers allowed a run on two hits and a walk in the ninth inning.

Matt Shoemaker and two Arkansas relievers held Tulsa to four hits.

Modesto, L 7-9 (12 innings)
Reliever Will Harris walked two and allowed a single to load the bases in the top of the 12th. With two outs, Harris then saw Jose Jimenez hit a groundball single to right field to score two runs. The Nuts went down in the bottom of the12th on a strike 'em out-throw 'em out.

Chad Bettis allowed six of the runs in 7.1 innings, though the last two scored when Kurt Yacko inherited them. Josh Rutledge fell a home run short of the cycle in his 4-for-6 night. Jared Clark doubled twice and drove in two. Nolan Arenado struck out swinging three times and had a single.

Asheville, L 3-7
Catcher Dustin Garneau's ninth-inning three-run homer (11) finally put the Tourists on the board in this one, but it was too late to do much good. Alan DeRatt gave up three runs in the second inning and left the game after the fifth. Stephen Head allowed three runs in the seventh, though only one was earned following a throwing error by Dominic Altobelli.

Tri-City, W 3-2
Shortstop Taylor Featherston and 2B Timothy Smalling picked up six of the team's hits (6-for-6), and each hit two doubles, drove in a run and drew a walk. Center fielder Brian Humphries whiffed four times. But the team went just 3-for-13 with RISP in the victory.

Vianney Mayo held Eugene to one run on four hits and four walks.

Casper, L 0-13
Letting the opposition put a seven spot up on the board in the second inning certainly isn't any way to win a game. And Casper didn't win this one, obviously. Geoff Hart was charged with all seven of those runs in the second inning and left after just 1.2 innings.

Trevor Story singled and Carl Thomore doubled as half of the team's four hits, but the former made two errors as well. Will Swanner went 0-for-4, ending his nine-game hitting streak, and picked up three of the team's 14 strikeouts.

DSL Rockies, W 8-3
Third baseman Cesar Galvez, leadoff hitter, went 4-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI. First baseman Franmy Pena hit a two-run homer, his third of the season.
