minor lines, 6/3/12

Sunday highlights from the Giants' farm: Francisco Peguero and Garrett Bueschele each homered as part of three-hit games. Also notable, Pablo Sandoval and Joseph Staley homered as part of two-hit games.

AAA: Fresno defeated Salt Lake 3-2

Fresno: 1B Conor Gillaspie: 1 for 4, HR, SO, E
Fresno: RF Francisco Peguero: 3 for 3, HR, BB

Fresno: SP Eric Hacker: 7.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Peguero reached base safely in all four plate appearances. He led off the 5th inning with his 4th HR, and the three hits raised his AVG to .236. Gillaspie had his 5th HR.

Hacker had his fifth straight quality start. Over his last five starts, he has allowed just 7 R in 34.0 IP, lowering his ERA to 3.03.

AA: Richmond lost to Erie 5-1

Richmond: CF Gary Brown: 1 for 3, HR, BB

Richmond: SP Justin Fitzgerald: 6.1 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 K--1 IBB, 1 WP

Brown led off the bottom of the 1st inning with his 2nd HR. Also drawing a walk, he was the lone Flying Squirrel to reach base twice.

Fitzgerald allowed just one run through six innings but then was charged with four runs in the 7th inning. His ERA rose to 4.87.

A+: San Jose lost to Stockton 10-6

San Jose: DH Pablo Sandoval: 2 for 5, HR, 2B, SO
San Jose: C Andrew Susac: 1 for 3, 2B, BB, SO
San Jose: LF Jarrett Parker: 1 for 4, HR, SO

San Jose: SP Justin Schumer: 4.2 IP, 13 H, 9 R, 8 ER, 1 BB, 6 K--2 HR

Playing his second rehab game, Sandoval homered and doubled. He had the Giants' only multi-hit line. Susac was one of three other Giants to reach base twice. Parker had his 6th HR.

Despite giving up seven runs in the first two innings, Schumer made it into the 5th inning. I think the 13 H would be a season-high by any pitcher in the Giants' organization this year.

A-: Augusta lost to Asheville 9-8

Augusta: C Joseph Staley: 2 for 4, HR, BB
Augusta: 3B Garrett Buechele: 3 for 4, HR, HBP

Augusta: SP Joe Biagnini: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 6 K--1 HR, 1 WP

Buechele had perhaps the biggest days of his pro carer. In the 6th inning, he had his 1st HR this year with a grand slam and finished the day with 7 RBIs. The GreenJackets' one other run came on Staley's solo shot to lead off the 5th inning.

Coming off the best start of his pro career (7.0 scoreless IP), Biagnini had a career-high 6 K but also matched a career high with 5 R. His ERA remains above 7.00 after seven starts.

DSL: The Gigantes had their usual Sunday off-day
