minor lines, 5/13/13

Monday highlights from the Giants' farm: both Chris Dominguez and Angel Villalona homered as part of multi-hit games.

AAA: Fresno defeated Memphis 4-3
(after scoring three runs in the 6th inning)

Fresno: 3B Chris Dominguez: 2 for 3, HR, 2 BB (1 IBB)
Fresno: SS Juan Ciriaco: 2 for 3, 2B, BB
Memphis: 2B Kolten Wong: 2 for 3, 2B, BB

Fresno: SP Mike Kickham: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
Fresno: RP Heath Hembree: 1.0 IP, 1 K

Dominguez led off the 2nd inning with his 6th HR. Reaching base four times, he raised his OBP above .300. With two hits each, Dominguez and Ciriaco had four of the Grizzlies' five hits. The Cardinals' Wong had his 8th double, which was the Redbirds' lone XBH, as he reached base three times.

Within this start, Kickham's peripheral stats do not look with just 2 K and nearly two baserunners per inning, but he kept the damage to 2 R and secured his first win. Hembree pitched a perfect 9th inning for his 12th save. His peripheral stats are now 13 H, 5 BB and 20 K in 19.0 IP.

AA: Richmond defeated Harrisburg 4-0

Richmond: RF Jarrett Parker: 2 for 4, 2B, BB, SO

Richmond: SP Carlos Teller: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K--2 WP
Richmond: RP Fabio Castillo: 3.1 IP, 3 BB, 5 K

Moved up to the leadoff spot in the batting order, Parker had his 7th double while reaching three times. In his third pro season, he is now hitting .241/.328/.440 through 116 AB.

Making a spot start after five relief appearances with San Jose and Fresno, Teller had 3.1 scoreless IP despite allowing nearly half (6 of 14) his batters to reach base. In long relief, Castillo followed up with another 3.1 scoreless IP, bringing his ERA below 4.00.

A+: San Jose lost to High Desert 9-2

San Jose: 1B Angel Villalona: 2 for 3, HR, 2B, E

San Jose: SP Edwin Escobar: 3.0 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K
San Jose: RP Bryce Bandilla: 1.0 IP, 3 K

The Giants managed just three hits--two of which were Villalona's 7th HR and 8th double. His last six hits have all gone for extra bases, and his XBH/H ratio is back above 50%.

Making his seventh start, Escobar allowed a season-high 5 R, although three of those runs were unearned. With 3 BB, his K/BB ratio slipped below 5.00. Bandilla struck out all three of his batters in the 8th inning.

A-: Augusta defeated Rome 11-8
(despite allowing six runs in the 9th inning)

Augusta: C Eric Sim: 3 for 4, PB

Augusta: SP Martin Agosta: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K--1 WP

With three of the GreenJackets' eleven hits, Sim raised his AVG to .233. After hitting less than .200 in April, he has hit over .300 through nine games in May.

Agosta enjoyed his third quality start this year. With 7+ K in six of his seven starts, his K/IP is nearly 1.40. He ranks second in the Sally League with his 52 K.
