Friday Pebble Report: Tyler Matzek Continues Late-Season Recovery

Colorado Springs, W 17-7
Seventeen runs and no homers for the Sky Sox? What is the world coming to? Scott Beerer went an impressive 5-for-6 with four RBI and two runs scored. Jordan Pacheco played third base, picked up three hits, and drove in two runs.

Tulsa, L 3-7
Ben Paulsen hit his 19th homer of the season in the first inning. The two-run shot tied the game, but that was the last time it would be. Christian Friedrich didn't have it, exiting with one out in the fourth inning. He allowed seven runs on 10 hits and a wild pitch. He allowed a three-run homer in the fourth inning.

Cory Riordan pitched 3.2 innings of relief and struck out five. Casey Weathers struck out three in his one inning of relief.

Modesto, W 5-3
The Nuts scored three runs over the last two innings of the game to capture the comeback victory. Nolan Arenado's 19th home run, a two-run shot, came in the eighth inning and put the Nuts up by one. Arenado added his 31st double earlier in the game. Carlos Martinez hit his sixth of the season, a solo homer, in the ninth to extend the lead by two.

Edwar Cabrera surrendered one run on four hits in five innings. He struck out nine.

Asheville, W 5-4
It wasn't quite like his last start, but Tyler Matzek went seven innings for his fifth win. He allowed three runs, all unearned because Helder Velazquez missed the catch on a bases-loaded play. All three runners scored. He did put himself in that situation with a wild pitch and two of his four walks. He struck out two and allowed two hits.

Matzek has pitched four straight games of seven innings and five in his last six outings.

Kyle Parker singled twice and walked twice.

Tri-City, W 7-2
Center fielder Leonardo Reyes and shortstop Taylor Featherston paced the offense from the top two spots of the lineup with three hits each and three runs scored. Featherston tripled in a run. Starter Tyler Gagnon limited Salem-Kaizer to one run on two hits in six innings.

Casper, W 8-6
The Ghosts scored five runs over the seventh and eighth innings to pull off this win. Harold Riggins (6) and Samuel Mende (14) hit back-to-back home runs n the fourth inning. Reliever Kyle Roliard struck out five over the final two innings of the game.
