Monday highlights from the Giants' farm: Jarrett Parker, Adam Duvall, Devin Harris and Jeff Arnold each homered while reaching base three times.
AAA: Fresno lost to Las Vegas 4-3
(allowing the go-ahead run in the top of the 9th inning)
Fresno: 2B Kensuke Tanaka: 3 for 5, SO, E
Fresno: RF Francisco Peguero: 4 for 5, SO
Fresno: LF Roger Kieschnick: 3 for 4, 2B, SO
Fresno: SP Boof Bonser: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Kieschnick, Peguero and Tanaka were the only Grizzlies with hits, but they combined for ten hits. All three hitters off to hot starts, as Kieschnick and Peguero lifted their AVGs above .450, while Tanaka is just shy of .400.
Making his season debut as the Grizzlies' fifth starter, Bonser allowed a couple runs in the 1st inning but followed with four scoreless frames. He threw 75 pitches (47 strikes).
AA: Richmond defeated Bowie 12-10
(after trailing 10-6 in the middle of the 4th inning)
Richmond: SS Ehire Adrianza: 1 for 4, HR, BB, SO
Richmond: 3B Adam Duvall: 2 for 3, HR, BB, E
Richmond: RF Jarrett Parker: 3 for 4, HR, 2B
Richmond: SP Ryan Bradley: 2.0 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Richmond: RP Fabio Castillo: 3.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 K
The Flying Squirrels got three big flies. In the 1st inning, Duvall connected for his 2nd HR, scoring three runs. Later, Parker and Adrianza had solo shots for their 1st HRs this year.
Bradley and Castillo, the first of three relievers for the Squirrels, allowed ten runs while allowing hits to nearly half (13 of 27) their batters. For his pro career, Bradley has a BAA over .300.
A+: San Jose defeated Stockton 8-2
San Jose: DH Devin Harris: 1 for 3, HR, 2 BB
San Jose: C Jeff Arnold: 1 for 1, HR, 2 BB, HBP
San Jose: SP Chris Marlowe: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 BB, 4 K
On an evening when the wind was blowing out to CF at 26 mph at game time, both Harris and Arnold went deep. Arnold had his 1st HR while reaching base in all four plate appearances.
Making his Cal League debut, Marlowe walked nearly a quarter (5 of 21) of his batters. Last year he had a BB/IP ratio of 0.70 in 83.2 IP in the Sally League.
A-: Augusta defeated Savannah 6-5
(scoring all six runs in the 7th inning)
Augusta: C Eric Sim: 2 for 4, 2B, 2 SO
Augusta: SP Joe Biagini: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K--1 HB, 1 E
Sim, who received just 59 AB last year, was one of five GreenJackets with two hits.
Biagini, who began last year in the Sally League but finished the year in the Northwest League, had a fairly unremarkable start from a statistical perspective. He got 5 K but did not make it through the 5th inning.
