Tuesday Pebble Report

New, 3 comments

(For the rest of the minor league season, Bryan will have the Pebble Reports on Tuesday. Time constraints make it unfeasible for me to get these out before 4:30 p.m. ET. And with that, I'm off to Citi Field. Try to spot me in left field.)

Colorado Springs 12, Salt Lake 5
The Sky Sox lineup was filled with hits, pounding out 16 in the victory. Brendan Harris was the only one not to get in on the action. Omir Santos went 3-for-5 with four RBI while Tim Wheeler, Tommy Field, Chad Tracy, and Brandon Wood (twice) each doubled. Cory Riordan allowed five runs in six innings before giving way to Jason Bergmann for the final three innings.

Tulsa 6, Midland 5
Midland took a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the eighth inning on a leadoff triple followed by a sac fly. However, the Drillers bounced back in the top of the ninth on a two-run double by Kiel Roling and a Mike Mitchell RBI double.

Roling led the team with three hits and two RBI. Corey Dickerson (2B, SB), Nolan Arenado (sac fly), and Angelys Nina (SB) each drove in a run as well.

Josh Outman struck out nine in 6.2 innings and allowed three runs. Zach Simons and Joe Torres bridged the gap to Josh Sullivan, who picked up his 15th save.

Stockton 5, Modesto 1
The Nuts scored their only run on Jared Clark's seventh-inning home run (23), but the team went 0-fot-8 with runners in scoring position. Juan Gonzalez allowed the first three runs over six innings while Nick Schnaitmann gave up two more over the last two innings of the game.

Asheville 5, Savannah 2
Tourists 3B Samuel Mende had the biggest hit of the night with a three-run home run (10) in the fifth inning. That proved the game-winner, as it put the Drillers up, 3-2. Two unearned runs scored in the top of the ninth on a throwing error, but Mende was thrown out at second on the play to end the inning.

Daniel Winkler started the game for the Tourists and picked up his 10th win of the season. He struck out seven and allowed two runs on a home run in the first inning. Kenneth Roberts and Jefri Hernandez (SV, 19) didn't allow a hit over the final three innings of the game.

Spokane 4, Tri-City 3
The Dust Devils attempted to win this game with a ninth-inning rally, but after Kyle Von Tungeln's run-scoring double also put a runner on third base, things didn't go so well. Rosell Herrera followed with a swinging strikeout and Tom Murphy flied out to center field, ending the game with the tying run just 90 feet away from scoring.

Third baseman Alec Mehrten picked up two hits and drove in two runs. Ryan Arrowood started and allowed two runs in three innings. Later on in the bottom of the eighth inning, Joey Maloney hit a two-run triple off Matt Flemer, breaking the 2-2 tie.

DSL Rockies 3, DSL Padres 2 (11 innings)
Outfielder Raimel Tapia doubled in Yonathan Daza in the top of the 11th to put the DSL Rockies ahead, 3-2. Manuel Montilla entered the game to close it out, but he wound up hitting the first batter he faced. A sac bunt moved the runner over to second, but Montilla recovered with a strikeout and groundout to end the game.

18-year-old lefty Helmis Rodriguez allowed two runs in six innings and struck out four.
