Game Notes - Fresno couldn't hold onto the lead in this one. Brett Pill hit an RBI double in the first inning, and Edgar Gonzalez had one in the third inning, pushing Fresno out to an early 2-0 lead. And while starter Doug Mathis made that look like it would be enough, reliever Felix Romero let it go in the seventh. He gave up two singles and a walk to load the bases, and Tucson center fielder Cedric Hunter hit a 3-run double to put Tucson on top.

Team Notes - Torres picked up his first hit on rehab in his second game in Fresno. He's 1-for-7 on the stint...Brett Pill played his sixth game at second base. His double was his first extra-base hit since May 1st...Gonzalez has a 12-game hitting streak, with his double extending it out...Belt had his worst game as a Grizzly this season. Combined, he's hit 3-for-12 with six strikeouts in his last three games...Mathis, in his sixth start, had his first without giving up a run. In his last start, he gave up seven without getting out of the first inning...Romero gave up his first runs of the season, though this was just his third outing. He joined the Grizzlies on May 2nd...In 11 2/3 innings, Kroon has collected 17 strikeouts.

Ronnie Ray 1.0 1 0 0 0 1 0 1.59 W (2-1)
Jason Stoffel 1.0 2 1 1 1 0 0 3.18 S (4)


Game Notes - The Flying Squirrels struck first in this game, as Jose Flores hit an RBI single in the first. That lead held until the fourth, when Altoona hit a home run to tie the game at one. Altoona took a 2-1 lead in the fifth, but an RBI groundout by Roger Kieschnick and an RBI single by Jusitn Christian in the sixth put Richmond back up, 3-2. In the bottom of the eighth, Joe Koshansky and Mike McBryde hit back-to-back home run to ice the game.

Team Notes - Koshansky is only slugging .333 with the Squirrels, with seven doubles and two home runs in 28 games...McBryde had his first multi-hit game since getting three hits on April 27th. The last time he was in the Eastern League, he had five home runs with the Connecticut Defenders in 90 games during 2009...Mixon picked up his first start since being sent down from Fresno. He'd had an inning of scoreless relief on May 2nd when he was sent down...Over his last four games, Stoffel has given up four earned runs on five hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings. He hasn't gotten a strikeout in that span. This was his first save since April 15th.

Game Notes - San Jose outright exploded in this one. Burg's two-run single in the second broke open the scoring, and San Jose collected eleven runs in the third and fourth innings alone to go up 13-0. By the end of the seventh, it was 16-1, and the game was effectively decided.

Team Notes - Gary Brown and Alex Burg each tied the San Jose record for hits in a single game, becoming the 27th and 28th players to do it. Earlier this season, Nick Liles also accomplished the feat...Carter Jurica's three doubles nearly doubled his season total. He's slugging .341 with the seven doubles and one home run in 26 games...Jarrett Parker has all four of his home runs in his last eight games played...Reichard made his second start, and as a starter has allowed just two earned runs in 8 2/3 innings. However, he has also allowed four unearned runs...Jose Casilla left the game with an apparent injury.

Game Notes - Augusta prevailed in the shortest game of the season for them so far, clocking in at an hour and 58 minutes. The Power scored first, picking up a run in the top of the second on a double-play groundout. However, in the bottom of the third, Robert Haney's first home run of his career put Augusta up 2-1. Augusta did it again in the bottom of the sixth, as Devin Harris hit a two-run home run to push the lead to 4-1, where it stayed.

Team Notes - Harris doesn't just lead Augusta by far in home runs, his seven home runs is part of a seven-way tie for second in the South Atlantic League. First in held by Miles Head of Greenville, with nine...Haney was playing in just his fourth game of the season, and has gone 2-for-12. The 22nd round pick in 2010 hit .239 in 20 games for the rookie league Giants last season...Sanford's start was the longest of the season. In 28 inning this season, hes given up 29 hits and eight walks, with 13 strikeouts. Stephen Harrold picked up his second save in as many games.
