minor lines, 9/4/13

Wednesday most notables from the Giants' farm: Ben Turner and John Polonius each had three hits.

AAA: Fresno ended its season on Monday

AA: Richmond ended its season on Monday

A+: San Jose plays its first playoff game on Saturday
(Tonight Visalia defeated Modesto 4-2 in the first game of their best-of-three series.)

A-: Augusta lost to Savannah 10-2

Augusta: 3B Mitchell Delfino: 2 for 4
Augusta: C Ben Turner: 3 for 4
Augusta: RF Chuckie Jones: 2 for 4, SO

Augusta: SP Martin Agosta: 4.1 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 3 K--1 HB
Augusta: RP Joe Kurrasch: 2.0 IP, 2 H

Turner's three hits paced the GreenJackets' nine-hit attack (all singles).  Delfino and Jones each added a couple hits.

Agosta had previously allowed as many as 4 R only twice in his 23 pro starts.  Tonight he allowed a career-high 6 R.  He allowed just 1 ER through 4.0 IP but then 5 ER in the 5th inning.  Kurrasch was the only one of five GreenJackets' pitchers not to allow an earned run.

ssA: Salem-Keizer lost to Boise 11-7
(being swept in the best-of-three series)

Salem-Keizer: 3B John Polonius: 3 for 3
Salem-Keizer: PR-3B Ryan Tuntland: 1 for 1, HR

Salem-Keizer: SP Chris Johnson: 2.1 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
Salem-Keizer: RP Raymundo Montero: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 3 K

Hitting safely in all three plate appearances, Polonius led the Volcanoes' nine-hit attack.  Although not in the starting lineup, Tuntland connected for the Volcanoes' lone XBH--a two-run HR in the 8th inning.

Johnson had not allowed more than 4 R in any of his fifteen starts this year but tonight surrendered nearly twice that many.  He allowed over half (9 of 16) his batters to reach base.  Montero, the Volcanoes' fifth reliever, struck out three of his four batters in the 9th inning.

R: Scottsdale won the AZL championship on Sunday

DSL: The Gigantes were eliminated from their playoffs over a week ago
