Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Monday, April 9th 2018

The Asheville Tourists got their first victory of the season in ten innings Monday, scoring one of their two runs from the new extra inning rule in MiLB that puts a runner on second base to begin each half inning. Ryan Vilade (no. 7 PuRP) extended his hit streak to four games (credit: Charlie Drysdale). Chad Spanberger (no. 29 PuRP) hit his first home run of the season and knocked in Vilade with a double in the ninth to tie the game at 6.

The Albuquerque Isotopes lost in extra innings Monday. Tom Murphy (no. 11 PuRP) started the 10th inning on second and scored. Unfortunately for the Isotopes and Jairo Diaz (no. 27 PuRP), the Bees also started with a runner on second in their half of the 10th and scored a run on a wild pitch by Diaz to tie the game.
