No MLB yesterday and several have posted pieces of last night’s games. So here is my brief recap of the Rockies Thursday night minor league action:
Colorado Springs Sky Sox lost on the road to San Antonio 2-5. Christian Friedrich actually started out well but finished five innings with 6 hits, 4 earned runs, 2 walks, and 6 strike outs. Both Brandon Roberts (who?) and Tommy Field went 2 for 4 hitting.
Tulsa Drillers (this team is going to be really good) won at San Antonio 7-2. Edwar Cabrera had a dominate outing pitching 6 innings giving up only 1 earned run and 3 hits to go along with NO walks and 6 strikeouts. Nolan Arenado (maybe he really should be starting in Houton tonight?) as he likely already leads the league with an .800 average, 4 hits and yep 3 RBIs. Josh Rutledge also had a home run while playing shortstop.
Modesto Nuts lost their home opener 3-4 to San Jose. The third lefty starter of the evening Tyler Matzek actually did alright pitching 4 2/3 inninngs while giving up just 3 hits and 0 earned runs. Walks are still too high with 3, but you gotta love those 7 strikeouts. All in all a good start for Matzek. Jared Clark playing 1st Base went 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs.
Here are the starting line-ups for the Sky Sox and Drillers:
Now for some real MLB baseball action!
