Hilliard, Fuentes and Castellani Dominate But Salt River Suffers Loss

Rockies prospects Tyler Nevin and Sam Hilliard drove in three runs apiece, and Ryan Castellani allowed one run in five innings, but Salt River could’t hold on, losing 12-6 to Glendale in the Arizona Fall League on Wednesday.

Nevin (.459), who has hit safely in all 10 games in which he has played, was 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI. Hilliard (.364) also was 2-for-5 and in addition to the three RBI scored a run. Josh Fuentes (.278) had his five-game hitting streak stopped, going hitless in five at-bats.

Castellani (4.91) allowed one run on five hits, did not walk a batter and struck out six. One of the hits was a solo home run by Cleveland shortstop prospect Yu Chang (.361), a native of Taiwan. It was his second start in a row in which he allowed only one run in five innings.

Rockies right-hander Jesus Tinoco (2.31) continued his transition to relieving with two perfect innings, striking out two. Mitch Horaceck (7.88) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk, striking out one, in one inning.
