When the High-A Lancaster JetHawks give up eight runs at The Hangar and it is only the fourth-most runs allowed by a Rockies affiliate, you know it was not a pretty day.
In seven games Thursday, Rockies minor league clubs allowed a combined 57 runs, or 8.1 per game.
Perhaps the most notable struggle for a pitcher came from Hartford Yard Goats starter Parker French (No. 26 PuRP), who allowed 11 runs, all earned, on nine hits, four of them home runs, in 2 2⁄3 innings, walking one and striking out three. French, who has pitched 98 1⁄3 innings for the Yard Goats this season, saw his ERA rise by nearly a full run in one day.
His counterpart at Triple-A Albuquerque, Zach Jemiola, did not fare much better. Jemiola got through four innings, allowing nine earned runs on 10 hits and three home runs with three walks and three strikeouts.
