minor lines, 6/30/12

Saturday highlight from the Giants' farm: Joe Panik had three hits.

AAA: Fresno lost to Tacoma 9-1
(after allowing six insurance runs in the 7th inning)

Fresno: RF Todd Linden: 1 for 3, HR
Tacoma: RF Carlos Peguero: 2 for 4, 2 HR

Fresno: SP Eric Hacker: 6.0+ IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 4 K--2 HR
Tacoma: SP Andrew Carraway: 9.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K--1 HR

Linden's 6th HR was one of just two times that a Grizzly reached base. The Mariners' Peguero homered twice.

Hacker allowed just 2 ER through six innings but then 3 ER more in the 7th inning. Carraway, making his tenth PCL start, had perhaps the best start of his career, allowing just a couple baserunners in the complete-game performance.

AA: Richmond lost to Akron 6-4
(allowing two runs in the bottom of the 8th inning)

Richmond: DH Russell Mitchell: 1 for 2, 2 BB
Richmond: SS Ehire Adrianza: 2 for 4, 2B

Richmond: SP Chris Heston: 4.1 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K--2 WP

Adrianza was the lone Flying Squirrel with two hits, but his AVG remains below .200. With both of the Squirrels' walks, Mitchell reached base three times. His OBP is over .400 since joining the Giants' organization nearly four weeks ago.

Has the league now figured Heston out? After allowing just 13 R over his first thirteen starts, he has allowed 4 R in each of his last three starts.

A+: San Jose lost to Lake Elsinore 6-2

San Jose: SS Joe Panik: 3 for 5, 2B
San Jose: 1B Ricky Oropesa: 2 for 4, 3B

San Jose: SP Josh Osich: 2.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
San Jose: RP Shawn Sanford: 7.0 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 K--1 WP, 2 E

Panik and Oropesa combined for five of the Giants' six hits, including Oropesa's 3rd triple and Panik's 18th double.

Making the first start of his pro career after fourteen relief appearances, Osish threw 36 pitches (26 strikes). He allowed 3 ER after having allowed just 3 ER in his previous nine appearances combined--all nine appearances which had been exactly 1.0 IP. Sanford made the rare 7.0 IP relief appearance, throwing 100 pitches (59 strikes).

A-: Augusta lost to Savannah 3-0

Augusta: DH Garrett Buechele: 3 for 4, 2B

Augusta: SP Adalberto Mejia: 5.0+ IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K--1 WP
Augusta: RP Steven Neff: 4.0 IP, 1 H, 5 K

Buechele's three hits lifted his team-leading AVG to .315.

Mejia followed up his past two excellent starts with at least a solid start. Neff was dominant in relief, facing just one batter over the minimum in 4.0 scoreless IP. His peripheral stats are now 46 H, 19 BB and 53 K in 46.1 IP.

ssA: Salem-Keizer lost to Everett 4-2 (11 innings)

Salem-Keizer: 3B Ryan Jones: 3 for 5, 2B
Salem-Keizer: C Sam Eberle: 1 for 3, 2B, BB, SH, SO

Salem-Keizer: SP Joe Biagnini: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Salem-Keizer: RP Chris Johnson: 2.2 IP, 2 K

Jones, whom the Giants selected in the 13th round this year, had half of the Volcanoes' six hits, raising his AVG to .229. Eberle, a late round draftee this year, reached base twice.

After nine starts in the Sally League and two NWL relief appearances, Biagnini made his first NWL start. He allowed just 1 ER in 5.1 IP. Johnson had two of his first three batters reach on errors but otherwise was perfect in 2.2 IP.

R: Giants defeated Indians 7-2

Scottsdale: SS Travious Relaford: 2 for 3, 2B, 3 BB, SO
Scottsdale: 3B Shayne Houck: 3 for 5, 3B

Scottsdale: SP Boof Bonser: 1.0 IP, 3 K--1 HB
Scottsdale: RP JosSSe Reyes: 4.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Scottsdale: RP Jacob Smith: 2.0 IP, 4 K

Relaford, a late round draftee a year ago, reached base five times in his third pro game. Houck, a late round draftee this year, had three hits, with the triple being his first pro XBH in seven games.

Bonser struck out three of his five batters. Reyes had what essentially was a solid start, allowing just 1 ER in 4.0 IP. Smith, a late round draftee from a year ago, struck out four of his six batters in his third pro appearance.

DSL: Giants defeated Cubs2 8-3

Dominican: RF-LF Carlos Cartagena: 2 for 2, BB, HBP
Dominican: SP Carlos Diaz: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 K--2 WP

Cartagena (18.6 y.o.) reached base in all four plate appaerances. Diaz's (18.7 y.o.) fifth start was his longest so far.
