Tulsa rallied from a four-run deficit to pick up one of three wins for Rockies affiliates on Thursday.

Charlie Drysdale

AAA - Colorado Springs Sky Sox 6, Oklahoma City RedHawks 2

The Sky Sox got a good start from veteran Brett Tomko, who allowed just two runs on six hits in six innings, striking out three and impressively walking none in a 6-2 win. At the plate, Rafael Ynoa had three hits and scored twice, Angelys Nina drove in a pair of runs and Jason Pridie had a 2-for-5 night in the victory.

AA - Tulsa Drillers 6, San Antonio Missions 4 (10 innings)

Drillers starter Carlos Hernandez dug his team an early 4-0 hole, allowing four runs on a dozen hits in five innings. However, the offense got him off the hook as the first six Drillers to the plate in the top of the sixth inning reached base with four singles, a triple and a walk leading to four runs. Tulsa then scored a pair of runs in the 10th on a wild pitch and a passed ball to secure the 6-4 victory.

High A - San Jose Giants 10, Modesto Nuts 2

It was another rough game for the Nuts, as starter Matt Flemer allowed nine runs on 11 hits in just 3 1/3 innings, digging Modesto a hole they could not climb out of. Kyle Von Tungeln was the bright spot offensively for Modesto, reaching base in all three of his trips to the plate thanks to a walk, a hit by pitch and an RBI double.

A - Asheville Tourists 3, Greenville Drive 1

Raimel Tapia had a pair of doubles in three at bats and scored a run to lead the Tourists' offensive efforts in a 3-1 win over Greenville. Johendi Jiminian earned his ninth win of the season with a strong effort on the mound, allowing a lone run on three hits in 5 1/3 innings of work.

Short-Season A - Boise Hawks 4, Tri-City Dust Devils 0

Miguel Dilone had two of the Dust Devils' five hits as they were shut out by a combined effort from three Boise pitchers in a 4-0 loss. Helmis Rodriguez did his best to keep his team in the game, striking out nine and allowing three runs in 6 2/3 innings of work.

Rookie - Orem Owlz 18, Grand Junction Rockies 4

It started ugly and got worse for the Rockies against Orem, as they allowed seven runs in the first inning en route to an 18-4 loss. Carlos Polanco allowed eight runs on seven hits with a pair of walks in 3 2/3 innings and the Grand Junction bullpen combined to allow nine runs in the sixth inning, putting the game out of reach.

DSL - DSL Orioles2 1, DSL Rockies 0 (12 innings)

Juan Pena threw seven shutout innings for the Rockies, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out four, but it was not enough as the offense only mustered three hits in 12 innings in a 1-0 extra-inning loss. A hit batter, error and RBI single proved to be the Rockies' undoing in the 12th.
