There's nothing quite like playing Colorado Springs where the weather can change every five minutes, fly balls turn into homers and no lead is safe. It's a great place. If you don't believe me, you should really follow Mike Curto's Twitter feed. He loves the Springs!
Just ask the Tacoma Rainiers how crazy the Springs can be. They were down seven runs and came back and won 18-13.
Starting pitcher Nate Robertson gave up 10 runs on 14 hits in five innings and still got the win. Alex Liddi and Mike Wilson hit two home runs each in the win.
Double A Jackson picked up a 4-2 win as the bullpen was forced to pitch eight innings when the recently called up Andrew Carraway was ejected from the game for hitting a batter. The bullpen did a solid job allowing just one run in those eight innings.
Never miss a local story.
Class A High Desert was roughed up by Stockton, 13-6 as Yoervis Medina fell to 1-8 on the season. Medina made it just four innings and gave up seven runs on 11 hits.
