Tom Murphy started things off with two home runs in Triple-A Albuquerque last night, and Jordan Patterson, Alex Castellanos, Double-A Hartford's Ashley Graeter (2), Noel Cuevas, and Ryan McMahon followed suit with big flies on the evening across Rockies minor league affiliates.

Elsewhere, Carlos Gonzalez — the other one — started for the DSL Rockies and took the loss on Saturday, and Nolan Arenado's cousin Josh Fuentes got two hits and three RBI for Modesto in a loss to Lake Elsinore.
