The Giants' Susac reached base twice, keeping his OBP close to .500. The Yankees' William had one of the Scorpions' five hits and two of their six walks to reach base three times. The Red Sox' Cecchini, who is perhaps among the top 50 prospects in the minors, reached base in all five plate appearances. The Indians' Naquin reached base four times. His three hits raised his AVG to .368.
The Giants' Hall allowed three straight singles with two outs in the 8th inning to allow a run, snapping a string of seven straight appearances without allowing an earned run. Even with an ERA of 3.00, he has been rather hittable with 13 H in 9.0 IP (.317 BAA, presuming the sample size is meaningful).
