Friday Pebble Report: Tyler Anderson Improves to 4-0 in the SAL

The affiliates were 2-3 yesterday, with one game suspended.

Colorado Springs 2, Sacramento 1 (Suspended in 4th)

This game was the suspended one. Brandon Wood had hit a 2 run shot to provide the offense for the Sky Sox (28-31, 6 GB) while Tyler Chatwood was on the mound.

Tulsa 6, Springfield 4

The Drillers (32-26, 1st) fell behind 3-0 in the first, but they clawed back into the game with 3 in the 4th and 2 in the 5th. Angelys Nina, Michael Mitchell, and PuRP 2 Nolan Arenado all had 3 hit games for Tulsa. Nick Schmidt only went 5 innings and gave up all 4 runs but he got the win, while Coty Woods pitched a clean 9th for his 9th save, lowering his season ERA to 0.36 in 25.1 IP.

Inland Empire 12, Modesto 4

The Nuts (30-31, 5.5 GB) committed 4 errors in this game, which didn't help. Even less helpful was the fact that they were down 9-0 before they got on the board in the 5th. Juan Gonzalez got knocked around (9 runs on 9 hits in 5 innings) to drop his record to 2-8. PuRP 7 Kyle Parker, Brett Tanos, and Chandler Laurent all had multi-hit nights for the Nuts.

Game 1: Asheville 2, Savannah 0

The story in this one was Colorado's 1st rounder in 2011, PuRP 14 Tyler Anderson. Anderson threw 6 out of the 7 innings in this contest, allowing only 3 hits and 3 walks while striking out 2, improving him to 4-0 in his pro career. Brian Humphries provided the offense in this one, hitting a 2 run shot (1) in the 2nd.

Game 2: Savannah 5, Asheville 4

This one was a tough one to swallow for the Tourists (41-19, 1st), who were up 4-0 entering the bottom of the 3rd. However, after that they failed to score and their opponents scored 5 over the next 3 frames to take the game. Harold Riggins was 2-3 with 2 RBI to lead the Tourists.

DSL Reds 5, DSL Rockies 2

The DSL Rockies (3-2, 1 GB) fell behind 5-0 early and couldn't recover. Catcher Franmy Pena drove in both runs for the DSL Rockies, while CF Wilson Soriano was 1-1 with 3 walks. After Carlos Estevez gave up all 5 runs in 4 innings, the bullpen shut the opponents down over the last 5, allowing 5 hits and striking out 5.
