The Sky Sox used five pitchers, none going more than three innings. The result? At least for one game? Three runs allowed.
Double-A third baseman Nolan Arenado had two hits and drove in two runs. Arenado is hot. He is hitting .350 over his last 10 games.
High-A outfielder Kyle Parker (no. pick, 2010) hit his 23rd homer of the season for Modesto. Parker has now nine homers in August and 18 since the All-Star break.
Will Swanner hit his 16th homer in the game and Trevor Story added two more hits. Story is now hitting .333 over his last 10 games. However, Story's defense is another matter. He made error number 23.
Teammate Eddie Butler put up another strong start, allowing just one run over six innings, lowering his ERA to 2.13. His ERA in his last 10 starts is 1.69.
Catcher Tom Murphy has four hits for Tri-City.
