Arizona Fall League 2012: Rockies prospects held in check in blowout loss

Rockies prospects Corey Dickerson and Isaiah Froneberger had a rough night in Arizona Fall League action on Saturday.

Colorado Rockies outfield prospect Corey Dickerson went 0-for-3, and relief pitcher Isaiah Froneberger allowed two runs on three hits and a walk as the Salt River Rafters dropped a 10-2 decision to the Surprise Saguaros on Saturday night in Arizona Fall League action.

Dickerson flied out in the third inning, then grounded out in the fifth and seventh. He is off to a slow start in the first week of AFL play, collecting just one hit in 11 at-bats, spanning three games. However, Dickerson has struck out just once, so BABIP luck has certainly been a factor.

Froneberger entered the game in the bottom of the fourth inning with two runners aboard. However, he was able to strand them despite throwing a wild pitch, as he induced a flyout and a groundout to get out of the inning. The fifth inning was not so kind to the 23-year-old lefty, as he allowed a walk and three singles, which resulted in two runs for Surprise. Froneberger has a 6.75 ERA through two appearances thus far.

Salt River was off on Sunday along with the rest of the Arizona Fall League. Action will resume Monday, with the Rafters taking on Phoenix at 12:35 p.m. MT.
