Rockies prospect Colton Welker drives in three in JetHawks’ win

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Sunday, August 5, 2018

In what turned out to be a high scoring day on the farm filled with close games by all (the largest margin of victory being four runs by the Grand Junction Rockies). Lancaster JetHawks DH Colton Welker (no. 3 PuRP) drove in three of the JetHawks’ 10 runs in three separate at bats, including an RBI single in the first inning, a sacrifice fly in the third, and an RBI double in the seventh - his 26th double of the season.

In Hartford, starting pitcher Ryan Castellani (no. 7 PuRP) had another good day. Castellani allowed only two runs on five hits in seven innings in the Yard Goats’ loss. In Albuquerque, MLB reliever Chris Rusin made his first rehab start for the Isotopes and it didn’t go quite as planned. He pitched a relatively clean fifth inning, pitching to four batters and only allowing one to get on base via a walk. His second inning got a little dicey when he allowed two straight singles, both of which came around to score on Austin Nola’s double during the next at bat, and a fielder’s choice out before being replaced by Brooks Pounders. The Isotopes ended up losing 7-6.
