minor (playoff) lines, 9/12/10

San Jose won their second playoff game, led by three hits each from Francisco Peguero and Brandon Crawford.

A+: San Jose defeated Modesto 6-5
(scoring the winning run in the bottom of the 9th inning)

San Jose: CF Francisco Peguero: 3 for 5, 2B
San Jose: DH Jose Flores: 1 for 3, BB
San Jose: SS-3B Brandon Crawford: 3 for 4, SB

San Jose: SP Kelvin Marte: 4.2 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 0 K--1 HR
San Jose: RP Wilmin Rodriguez: 1.0 IP, 1 BB, 3 K
San Jose: RP Jason Stoffel: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K--1 WP
Modesto: RP Casey Weathers: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R--1 WP

Peguero had another multi-hit game, including a single to lead off the bottom of the 9th inning.  As he and Crawford had three hits each, they each have hit at least .500 in their two playoff games so far.  Flores was the only other Giant to reach base twice.

Marte made just his sixth start of the year, which was less than a quality start although better than his one other Cal League start (6 ER in 3.2 IP).  Wi-Rod, who made 37 relief appearances for the Giants' two East Coast affiliates during the regular season, struck out three of his four batters.  Stoffel pitched a scoreless 9th inning to be credited with the win.  Weathers, whom the Rockies drafted eighth overall three years ago but who missed all of last year following Tommy John surgery, allowed an unearned run in the 9th inning to take the loss.

Note: While the Giants lead the Cal League's Northern Division best-of-five series 2-0, the Southern Division series is now tied 1-1 as tonight Rancho Cucamonga was led by performances by the Angels' rehabbing Joel Pineiro, who had a quality start (2 ER in 6.0 IP), and their top prospect Mike Trout, who had three hits including a triple.
