Colorado Rockies prospects: Boise teenagers Herrera and Padlo leading team

Colorado Rockies Affiliates Scoreboard and Recap for Monday, August 10, 2015.

Caitlin Rice

Class A Short-Season: Boise Hawks (17-33)

Box
Eugene 9, Boise 0
W: Morrison (1-1, 0.84) ; L: Welmon (1-4, 4.59)

Not a great game from the Boise crew who failed to score on their seven hits, while allowing nine runs and committing two errors. The two teenager stars for Boise Carlos Herrera and Kevin Padlo both went 1-3 with a walk and Padlo stole his 26th base. Playing in a league where the average pitcher is two-and-a-half to three years older, Herrera and Wall are leading the Hawks in batting average and only seem to be getting better.

Herrera is following up an excellent July where he hit .320/.386/.437 with an similarly impressive .364/.391/.409 line in August. If Herrera has been good than Padlo has been even better following up a .307/.431/.515 July with a .346/.433/.423 August line with more walks than strikeouts.

Rookie: Grand Junction Rockies (22-27)

Box
Final 10 Innings
Great Falls 8 Grand Junction 7
W: Barrow (1-1, 8.59) ; L: Brothers (2-2, 3.90) ; SV: Dopico (5)

This is one of those games where it seems unfair that only pitchers get a win/loss record. The defense committed four errors coughing up a 7-3 lead in the process. Certainly, if you wanted to hand out a loss in this one it shouldn't have gone to Hunter Brothers who went two scoreless innings striking out four with no walks before giving up a solo shot with two outs in the tenth.

Starter Mike Nikorak had a forgettable outing. He allowed a hit or a walk to half the 12 batters he faced. The only remotely encouraging thing about Nikorak's start was that four of his five outs recorded came by ground-out or strikeout. The loss was the eighth straight for the Grand Junction squad.

Dominican Summer League: DSL Rockies (28-33)

Box
DSL Rockies 2, DSL Dodgers 0
W: Garcia, H (3-1, 2.00) ; L: Ascanio (0-1, 6.45) ; SV: Moreta (1)

Antonio Santos recorded his fourth consecutive scoreless outing to begin his professional career, and both CF Manuel Melendez and SS Jose Gomez continued their case for promotion. The 18-year old hitters have done very well in the second half with Melendez boasting a .315/.383/.425 line since the break, and the shortstop Gomez hitting an insane .385/.467/.554 in that same stretch.

ALB: Hale (0-2, 6.41)
NBR: Carle (12-6, 3.59)
MOD: TBD
ASH: Castellani (0-7, 4.12)
BOI: Wynkoop (2-1, 2.88)
GJ: TBD
DSL: TBD
