Rockies prospect Willie Abreu powers JetHawks to victory

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Tuesday, April 24, 2018

The Lancaster PuRPs filled the stat sheet with hits, and Willie Abreu (no. 26 PuRP) powered the JetHawks to victory by hitting a two-run home run in the 6th inning, his fourth of the year, after hitting an RBI single in the 5th, as well. Colton Welker (no. 5 PuRP) added two hits and an RBI, and Forrest Wall (no. 16 PuRP) continued his comeback campaign by going 2-for-5, raising his average to .333 this season, and swiped his 10th stolen base of the year. Not to be outdone, Tyler Nevin (no. 12 PuRP) added two knocks, including an RBI double that broke a 0-0 tie in the 5th inning.

In the only other game played by a Rockies affiliate on Tuesday, Ryan Castellani (no. 6 PuRP) pitched five innings of one-run ball for the Yard Goats, but let his wild side loose by walking six batters — he struck out five. Sam Hilliard (no. 17 PuRP) showed off his speed with his 6th stolen base of the year, Yonathan Daza (no. 19 PuRP) doubled, and Brendan Rodgers (no. 1 PuRP) extended his hitting streak to eight games by going 1-for-3.
