New, 12 comments

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Tuesday, July 3, 2018

For the first time since being sent down to the Rockies’ Triple-A affiliate, Jon Gray took the mound last night and took care of business against the Chihuahuas. He lasted six innings, threw 80 pitches (52 for strikes), gave up two hits, two runs, and struck out six. He was dominant and no-hit El Paso through the first five innings before giving up a single and a home run in the 6th, but settled down and easily retired the final two batters of the inning before exiting for the evening. He was also 2-for-2 at the plate with a double and run scored.

It was a big night for the ‘Topes on offense, too, and Mike Tauchman led the way by hitting a triple and a home run on the way to collecting four RBI. Garrett Hampson hit his 4th home run since being promoted to ABQ, and Ryan McMahon collected three hits, as well.

In Asheville, Chad Spanberger continued his hot year by hitting his 20th bomb of the season on a two-hit night that included a double and three RBI, and Will Gaddis pitched six strong innings giving up one run on 6 hits and striking out three batters.
