Tuesday highlights from the Giants' farm: Kyle Crick had 5.0 scoreless IP, and Brett Pill homered and singled.
AAA: Fresno lost to Reno 7-4
Fresno: CF Gary Brown: 2 for 4, BB, SO, CS
Fresno: 1B Brett Pill: 2 for 4, HR
Fresno: 3B Chris Dominguez: 1 for 4, HR, SO
Reno: SS Chris Owings: 4 for 4, 3 HR, E
Fresno: SP Mitch Lively: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 5 K--5 HR
Fresno: RP Brett Bochy: 1.0 IP, 1 K
Fresno: RP Mason Tobin: 1.0 IP, 2 K
Pill and Dominguez both homered for the second straight day--their 14th and 12th HRs. Brown reached base three times. Owings, one of the Diamondbacks' top five prospects, had perhaps the best game of his career, homering in the 1st, 3rd and 5th innings.
I don't know that I have ever seen a line like Lively's before. He yielded 5 HR but just one other hit. He had allowed just 6 HR before tonight. Bochy and Tobin pitched perfect 6th and 9th innings.
AA: Richmond had the first day of their two-day all-star break
A+: San Jose defeated Lake Elsinore 1-0 (10 innings)
San Jose: 1B Ricky Oropesa: 2 for 4, HR
San Jose: SP Kyle Crick: 5.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 4 K
San Jose: RP Kelvin Marte: 3.0 IP, 1 H, 2 K
San Jose: RP Stephen Harrold: 1.0 IP, 1 K
Oropesa had the Giants' only two hits--a leadoff single in the 7th inning and a leadoff, walk-off HR in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Making his fourth start since returning from the DL, Crick allowed 0 R and just 1 H but had a season-high 5 BB and just 4 K. It was his second time in seven starts with more walks than strikeouts. Marte faced just one batter over the minimum in 3.0 scoreless IP. Harrold pitched a perfect 10th inning.
A-: Augusta lost to Savannah 8-1
Augusta: 3B Mitchell Delfino: 2 for 4, 2B
Augusta: SP Joe Biagini: 4.0 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K--1 HR
Delfino was one of three GreenJackets with two hits. Snapping a five-game hitless streak, he improved his season line to .233/.301/.367 through 275 AB.
Allowing half (11 of 22) his batters to reach base, Biagini had his second straight start below-average start. Allowing 11 ER in his last two starts has raised his ERA to nearly 4.50.
ssA: Salem-Keizer had their only scheduled off-day before their early August all-star break
R: Scottsdale had a scheduled off-day
DSL: The Gigantes had a scheduled off-day
