Mayora had two of the Flying Squirrels' five hits (all singles). Both he and Brown reached base three times. Mayora's AVG is .386, while Brown's AVG is an even .200.
After just 3 BB over his first three starts, Westcott issued 5 BB in his fourth start. With just 1 K today, his K/IP slipped below 0.50. But he did have a 10/3 GO/FO line. Maday had allowed just 3 H and 0 R over his first five appearances but was tagged for 5 H and 5 R today.
A+: San Jose lost to Bakersfield 8-6
San Jose: CF Chris Lofton: 1 for 4, HR, 2 SO
San Jose: 3B Adam Duvall: 1 for 4, HR, SO
San Jose: DH Ricky Oropesa: 1 for 4, HR, 2 SO
Bakersfield: SS Billy Hamilton: 2 for 4, 2B, BB, SO, 2 SB
San Jose: SP Taylor Rogers: 3.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 1 K--1 HR, 2 HB, 1 WP
San Jose: RP Edward Concepcion: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K--1 HR
San Jose: RP Phil McCormick: 1.0 IP, 1 K
Duvall, who had 22 HRs last year, had his 3rd HR of the 2012 campaign. Oropesa had his first pro HR. Lofton, who had just 3 HRs in his previous two seasons as a pro, had his 1st HR. The Reds' Hamilton continues to be an OBP machine versus the Giants, as well as the rest of the league, given his .467 OBP this year. After 103 SB last year, he already has 16 SB this year.
Rogers had allowed just 3 ER over his first three starts but today allowed 4 ER in his shortest start of the year. Concepcion stranded both runners inherited from Rogers but then allowed 4 ER in the next inning, raising his ERA to nearly 10.00. McCormick pitched a perfect 7th inning.
