Wednesday Pebble Report: As GJ Rockies Prepare to Wrap Regular Season, Drillers, Nuts and Tourists Prepare for Postseason Play

New, comments

Idaho Falls 7, Grand Junction 2

In the lone game played in the Rockies MiLB system yesterday, sloppy defense reigned supreme as starter Shawn Stuart surrendered three unearned runs while the Rockies committed five errors behind him, part of six total in the game for the Grand Junction youngsters. Stuart lasted five innings and gave up just two hits, without walking anybody. Rayan Gonzalez allowed three runs in two thirds of an inning. The damage was slowed in the final third of the game, with only one more run coming off Raul Fernandez while Michael Mason and Scott Oberg threw clean frames.

The offense didn't shine much last night either beyond Correlle Prime, who singled three times and batted in one of the two GJ runs. Max White also singled in a run. Jeremy McLeod and Franmy Pena each reached base and scored one of the two runs. David Dahl was given the night off.

The GJ Rockies have two games remaining in their regular season. All other Rockies MiLB activity has been related to preparations for MiLB postseason play, which begins today. The Drillers take on the Springfield Cardinals at home. In transactions news, the Rockies have chosen to give Coty Woods the chance to pitch in the AA playoffs. He has taken a spot on the Tulsa roster in place of Brett Jacobson.

The Nuts will be in San Jose taking on the Giants, while Asheville travels to Rome (not that Rome) to play the Braves. Some teams sure do like to name their affiliates after themselves. The Sky Sox and Dust Devils did not make the playoffs in their respective leagues, and have seen their seasons come to an end.
