Just a single highlight from the Giants farm on Monday: While rain postponed two games, Juan Perez homered for the second consecutive day in one of the remaining two games.
AAA: Fresno at Portland postponed due to rain
(A makeup doubleheader is scheduled for June 23.)
AA: Richmond at New Britain postponed due to rain
(A makeup doubleheader is scheduled for tomorrow.)
A+: San Jose lost to Stockton 8-5
San Jose: SP Aaron King: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 4 K--1 HB
San Jose: RP Ben Wilshire: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
For the second straight day, Perez homered and was the only Giant with a multi-hit line. His 3rd HR of the year led off the bottom of the 1st inning. Biery was one of two other Giants to reach base twice. His OBP is above .450. Belt doubled to extend his hitting streak, although his AVG dipped below .400.
The day before his 21st birthday, King did not make it out of the 4th inning, allowing 5 ER in 3.2 IP. He had allowed 5 ER over his previous two starts combined. His ERA is now 7.30 through three starts. Wilshire's fifth appearance was easily his longest appearance of the year as he provided long relief.
A-: Augusta lost to Asheville 6-3
Augusta: 2B Ryan Cavan: 2 for 4, PO
Augusta: RF Ryan Lollis: 2 for 4
Augusta: 3B Chris Dominguez: 1 for 4, 2B, E
Augusta: SP Jorge Bucardo: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 K--1 HR, 1 IBB
Augusta: RP Mitch Lively: 0.1 IP, 2 BB
With two hits each, Cavan and Lollis accounted for half of the GreenJackets' eight hits, raising their respective AVGs to .280 and .346. Dominguez now has 8 XBH and 6 E through 19 games.
Bucardo allowed four runs in a start for the second time this year. With losses in both of those starts, his W-L record is now 0-2 through four starts despite a sub-3.00 ERA overall. After three appearances with Richmond to begin the year, Lively walked two of three batters in his first appearance as a GreenJacket.
