Colorado Rockies Affiliates Scoreboard for Friday, April 10, 2015.

Triple-A

Albuquerque 2, Reno 1

W: Castro, S (1-0, 0.00) ; L: Runzler (0-1, 6.75)

After seeing eight runs scored yesterday off of the Rockies number one starter and number one prospect in eight innings, the Reno Aces only managed to eke out one run against John Lannan and four relievers over ten innings. Rex Brothers worked one inning, allowing a single and striking out one, and Simon Castro collected the win, as he worked a scoreless tenth. Kyle Parker hit a home run but did not record a hit after that; he did walk three times though. 

Double-A

New Hampshire 6, New Britain 0

W: Barnes, D (1-0, 0.00) ; L: Carpenter (0-1, 7.20)

To tell you the truth I kind of preferred yesterday’s rainout, as at least then nobody struck out 17 times the way the Rock Cats did in this one. The only bright spot was No. 2 PuRP David Dahl who went 1-3 with a walk. Like I said, not a lot to work with in a game where the whole team managed five singles and all nine players who came to the plate for New Britain struck out at least once.

High-A

Modesto 12, Lake Elsinore 2

W: Wade (1-0, 3.00) ; L: Shepherd (0-1, 94.50)

Okay now this was more like it, the Nuts took it to Lake Elsinore with strong performances up and down the lineup, most notably from No. 5 PuRP Raimel Tapia, who doubled twice, PuRPs No. 7 and 27, Ryan McMahon and Jordan Patterson, who both tripled and homered, and Catcher Troy Stein, who reached base in all five plate appearances with three singles and two walks in his first game above rookie ball. The pitching was almost as strong. Konner Wade worked six strong innings striking out six and walking one. It is fun seeing that strong 2014 Asheville team now spread out across High-A and Double-A ball and still doing extremely well.

Single-A

Asheville 6, Rome 3

W: Rodriguez, H (1-0, 0.00) ; L: Barker (0-1, 9.82) ; SV: Michalec (2)

Fourth round pick from 2014 Wes Rogers did not get a ton of PuRP list love last time around, which is really not anyone’s fault. His park adjusted numbers were behind several of his teammates, and his numbers, while good, were not eye popping. That won’t continue if he has many more nights like this one. Rogers went 2-2 with a triple, three walks and five (!!!) stolen bases, Rogers now has 21 stolen bases against just one caught steal in his time in the organization. Other notable performances included those from Helmis Rodriguez, who went six innings, striking out two and not allowing an earned run, and No. 9 PuRP Forrest Wall, who smoked two doubles in four at bats.

Today's probables

Triple-A: Justin Marks vs. Chad Bettis

Double-A: Shane Carle vs. Taylor Cole

High-A: Johendi Jiminian vs. Ronald Herrera

Single-A: Ryan Castellani (who Charlie Drysdale recently interviewed) vs. Ricardo Sanchez
