Sunday highlights from the Giants' farm: Jarrett Parker homered twice, and Ryan Lollis and Brett Krill each homered among three hits.
AAA: Fresno lost to Colorado Springs 8-6
Fresno: LF Cole Gillespie: 3 for 4, 2 2B, BB
Fresno: SS Juan Curiaco: 2 for 4, BB, SO, SB, 2 E
Fresno: SP Chris Heston: 6.0 IP+, 8 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K--1 HR, 3 HB, 1 WP
Colorado Springs: SP Drew Poermanz: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 5 K
Gillespie had a big game, reaching base four times and throwing at a runner at the plate. He has hit .300/.391/.485 through 130 AB. Ciriaco reached base three times but also committed his 6th and 7th errors (in 32 games).
Heston allowed more than two baserunners per inning. His 1.67 WHIP is among the bottom ten in the PCL (among qualifiers). The Rockies' Pomeranz, who made 22 MLB starts last year, allowed 5 ER, pushing his ERA above 4.00.
AA: Richmond defeated Altoona 20-9
(after scoring nine runs in the 1st inning)
Richmond: RF Jarrett Parker: 4 for 5, 2 HR, 2B, BB, HBP
Richmond: CF Ryan Lollis: 3 for 5, HR, BB
Richmond: LF Brett Krill: 3 for 3, HR, 2B
Richmond: SP Carlos Teller: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 5 BB, 4 K
Today was a big day for the Flying Squirrels' three starting outfielders as they combined for 10 H, 6 XBH, 4 HR, 2 BB, and 1 HBP. Parker had his second straight two homer game, both of which he hit in the 1st inning. He now has 10 HRs. Krill added his 1st HR in the 2nd inning, and Lollis his 3rd HR in the 5th inning. The wind was blowing out to LF at 17 mph at game time.
In three starts, Teller has issued 11 BB in 13.0 IP but somehow limited the damage to a 3.46 ERA.
A+: San Jose had a scheduled off-day
(the final of their four scheduled off-days before their June 17-19 all-star break)
A-: Augusta lost to Savannah 3-1 (12 innings)
Augusta: 3B Shayne Houck: 3 for 5, BB
Augusta: LF Andrew Cain: 3 for 5
Augusta: SP Justin Schumer: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K--1 HB
Houck and Cain each had three of the GreenJackets' thirteen hits, raising their AVGs to .305 and .245.
Schumer's fifth start (among nine appearances) was his best of the year, with the 6.0 scoreless IP getting his season ERA back below 9.00. Still, he remains fairly hittable with 28 H and just 7 K in 22.1 IP.
