Friday September 4

Triple-A Albuquerque

Sacramento 6, Albuquerque 1 | MiLB.com Box

Trevor Story hit his ninth home run for the Isotopes, giving him 19 total across Double and Triple-A. Corey Dickerson, who the big club has sorely missed in left field this season, went 1-for-3 with a single in this rehab appearance.

Double-A New Britain

New Britain 3, Portland 0 | MiLB.com Box

Shane Carle threw eight excellent innings in his final start of the minor league season. He tossed eight shutout innings, allowed three hits, walked one, and struck out three. The 24 year-old has a chance to crack the back end of the Rockies rotation if he continues to progress. In Double-A, where Carle made 26 of his 27 starts, he posted a 3.68 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP.

Jordan Patterson is another prospect demanding attention. In this one, Patterson went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

High-A Modesto

Modesto 7, Stockton 4 | MiLB.com Box

Kyle Freeland will play in the Arizona Fall League starting next month, but he's made his final start for the Modesto Nuts on Friday. It was uneven. He threw 6 2/3 innings, allowed four runs on six hits, and he walked and struck out two. One of the hits he gave up was a home run. Before the season, many thought it was possible for Freeland to crack the Rockies' rotation this season. But due to injury and fatigue, he only threw 39 2/3 minor league innings.

Top prospects were the story on offense, too. Raimel Tapia had two hits in five plate appearances, including a triple. Ryan McMahon did even better: he went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBIs, a walk, and three runs scored.

Low-A Asheville

Asheville 5, Greensboro 3 | MiLB.com Box

Wes Rogers didn't steal a base, but he did have two hits, including a double, and scored two of Asheville's five runs. Forrest Wall also had a single in five plate appearances. And he did steal a base.

Short Season-A Boise

Salem-Keizer 8, Boise 3 | MiLB.com Box

Brian Mundell's double was the only extra base hit the Hawks could muster. Starter Colin Welmon allowed three runs in four innings, and reliever Logan Cozart allowed four in one inning of work.

Rookie Grand Junction

Ogden 10, Grand Junction 4 | MiLB.com Box

GJ starter Gavin Glanz was tagged for seven runs on six hits in an inning of work. Tyler Nevin went 2-for-4 with a double, and Jonathan Piron had two doubles of his own in four plate appearances.

Saturday September 5

Triple-A Albuquerque

Albuquerque 5, Sacramento 3 | MiLB.com Box

After going deep for the first time in a while on Friday night, Trevor Story had a 3-for-5 day on Saturday, including another home run. That gives him 20 for the minor league season. Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a double and a home run in another rehab start.

Double-A New Britain

New Britain 11, Portland 9 | MiLB.com Box

The Rock Cats pulled out on top in this slugfest. Will Swanner had a couple of doubles and Noel Cuevas had three hits, as well as three RBIs. The only starter to go hitless was Jordan Patterson, who had a rough day at the plate. He went 0-for-5 and struck out three times.

High-A Modesto

Stockton 5, Modesto 3 | MiLB.com Box

In the final start of his excellent season in the minor leagues, 20 year-old Antonio Senzatela allowed four runs on six hits in five innings. He walked two and struck out four. Against competition on average three years older, Senzatela compiled a 2.51 ERA in 26 starts. Most impressively, he struck out 8.4 batters per nine and walked just 1.9.

Modesto's offense was held to just one extra base hit. It came off the bat of Ryan McMahon, how added a couple of singles in a 3-for-5 night.

Low-A Asheville

Greensboro 5, Asheville 2 | MiLB.com Box

Other than Shane Hoelscher, who went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored, the Tourists were listless on offense. Forrest Wall went hitless and struck out twice in four plate appearances.

Short Season-A Boise

Salem-Keizer 2, Boise 1 | MiLB.com Box

Jack Wynkoop had a very nice end to his first try at professional ball. The recent draftee thre five innings and allowed one run on three hits. He walked one and struck out five. Look for the 21 year-old to begin next season with Low-A Asheville.

The Hawks were quiet on offense. Kevin Padlo went 0-for-3 with a walk. Jensen Park, who doubled, had the team's only extra base hit.

Rookie Grand Junction

Grand Junction 5, Ogden 2 | MiLB.com Box

Sam Hilliard went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored to help the GJ Rox to victory. Tyler Nevil had a double in two plate appearances.
