Fresno: 2B Matt Downs: 2 for 4, 2B, BB, SB, GiDP

Fresno: SP Todd Wellemeyer: 4.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 6 BB, 4 K

Batting in the first two spots in the lineup, Burriss and Downs combined for five of the Grizzlies' nine hits as the reached base three times each.  They raised their respective AVGs to .295 and .280.

Richmond: 3B Conor Gillaspie: 2 for 4

Richmond: SP Michael Main: 3.0 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 6 BB, 2 K--2 HR, 1 WP

Gillaspie had two of the Flying Squirrels' six hits, raising his AVG to .273.  Neal walked three times, but his BB/AB ratio remains below 9.0%.

Main continues to scuffle since his promotion to the upper minors.  He has allowed at least 4 R in each of his four starts for the Squirrels while averaging just over 3.0 IP.

Monell and Sandoval drove in all three of the Giants' runs with Sandoval's two-run HR in the 2nd inning and Monell's 8th inning solo HR that provided a needed insurance run.  Poythress, the Mariners' second rounder last year, connected for his 20th HR.

In the longest start of his pro career (although he never started before this year), Fitzgerald lowered his season ERA to 3.42 through eighteen starts.  With just 2 H, he also lowered his BAA to .263.  Stoffel got his 17th save despite allowing a run.

A-: Augusta defeated Hickory 13-7
(after scoring eleven runs in the 3rd inning)

Augusta: 2B Ryan Cavan: 3 for 4, BB
Augusta: 3B Chris Dominguez: 3 for 4, HR, BB

Augusta: SP Brian Irving: 5.0 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 K--1 HR

Dominguez and Cavan each had three hits as they each reached base four times, including Dominguez's 15th HR, which was a grand slam in the 3rd inning.

Irving allowed a season-high 5 ER in his seventh start but still got the win.  His season ERA now stands just above 4.50.

ssA: Salem-Keizer lost to Everett 2-0

Salem-Keizer: 2B Adam Duvall: 2 for 4, SO

Salem-Keizer: SP Taylor Rogers: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K--1 IBB
Salem-Keizer: RP Matt Graham: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER

Duvall had two of the Volcanoes' four hits (all singles) as their only hitter to reach base safely twice.  His AVG is now an even .300.

Rogers had his second straight start with 0 ER to lower his ERA to 3.57 through eight starts.  The 20-year-old Graham continues to allow runs, with 1 ER each in his last three relief appearances.  His ERA remains above 7.50.  He did have a 5/1 GO/FO line.

R: Giants defeated Indians 5-1

Scottsdale: 2B Carlos Willoughby: 1 for 4, HR
Scottsdale: 1B Brice Cutspec: 2 for 4, 2B, SO

Scottsdale: SP Waldis Joaquin: 1.0 IP

Scottsdale: RP Jacob Dunnington: 2.0 IP, 1 BB, 5 K
Goodyear: SP Jason Knapp: 1.0 IP, 1 K

Willoughby had his 2nd career pro HR and his 1st HR this year.  Cutspec had his sixth multi-hit line in his last ten games, raising his AVG to .322.

Joaquin worked a perfect 1st inning in his rehab appearance.  Although technically a relief appearance, Paniagua took his normal turn in the rotation.  The 19-year-old Dunnington struck out five of his seven batters.  Knapp, whom the Indians acquired from the Phillies as part of last summer's Cliff Lee trade and who entered the year considered a top 100 prospect, finally made his first appearance of the year.

R: Giants defeated Phillies 5-2

Dominican: LF Leonardo Fuentes: 2 for 3, SF, SO
Dominican: RP Yeini Martinez: 4.0 IP, 2 BB, 2 K
