ssA: Salem-Keizer defeated Eugene 7-5

Salem-Keizer: CF Caleb Curry: 0 for 5, 3 SO
Salem-Keizer: SS Ryan Cavan: 2 for 4, 3B, E

Salem-Keizer: RHP Javier Hernandez: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 1 K--3 HR
Salem-Keizer: RHP Brandon Grabham: 3.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K--1 WP

Cavan, the Giants' sixteenth round pick earlier this month, was the only Volcano to reach base twice  He had his first pro XBH but also his first pro error.  Curry suffered the oh-fer with the hat trick.  He had a SO/AB ratio above 22.0% a year ago in the NWL.

Hernandez, who had a 4.06 ERA in eleven AZL starts last summer, had an uninspiring NWL debut, including three runs in the 1st inning and a run in each of the next three innings.  Grabham, a late round draft choice two years ago who had a sub-3.00 ERA in ten AZL relief appearances last summer, struck out six of fourteen batters faced in his 2009 season debut.

R: The AZL Giants had their first scheduled off-day.
(They will have an off-day every fifth day the rest of the season.)

DSL: Giants defeated Rays 4-2

Dominican: 2B Carlos Willoughby: 2 for 4, BB, SB
Dominican: RHP Miguel Ferrer: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K--1 WP

Willoughby (20.7 y.o.) had two of the Gigantes' four hits, raising his AVG above .300.  Ferrer (18.10 y.o.) has had four very effective starts this year with a 1.64 ERA.  Perhaps even more impressive, he has just to issue a walk in 22.0 IP.  A year ago his BB/IP ratio was 26%.
