Among Giants' farmhands, Parker reached base twice with one of the Scorpions' five hits and one of their three walks; but Villalona had an oh-fer. The Rafters' offense was led by Ramsey, whom the Cardinals drafted 23rd overall a year ago. He homered while reaching base three times. In his first full minor league season, he hit .265/.373/.440 in 411 AB, primarily in double-A.
The Giants' Law entered the game in the 3rd inning with one out and a runner on first base. Despite allowing singles to his first two batters, he got out of the inning without allowing the inherited runner to score by striking out both of his final two batters. The Giants' Hall allowed four of his seven batters to reach base, resulting in 2 ER.
