Wednesday highlight from the Giants' farm: Blake Miller had four hits.
AAA: Fresno defeated El Paso 6-5
(scoring four runs in the 5th inning)
Fresno: CF Gary Brown: 2 for 4, BB, SO
Fresno: C Guillermo Quiroz: 1 for 3, BB
El Paso: 1B Kyle Blanks: 2 for 4, 2B, BB
Fresno: SP Jake Dunning: 3.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K--1 WP
Fresno: RP Erik Cordier: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 3 K
Brown reached base three times, improving his OBP to .349. Quiroz was one of only two other Grizzlies to reach base twice. The Padres' Blanks had a solid game, with his 5th double, a single, and a walk.
Dunning, making just his first start in three years, delivered 3.2 scoreless IP. He threw 56 pitches (35 strikes). Cordier kept the Chichuahuas off the scoreboard through the 6th inning.
AA: Richmond hosting Bowie postponed by rain
(A makeup doubleheader is scheduled for May 14.)
A+: San Jose defeated Modesto 9-5
(after trailing 5-2 entering the 5th inning)
San Jose: DH Shawn Payne: 2 for 4, 2 2B, BB, SB
San Jose: SS Blake Miller: 4 for 5, 2B, E
San Jose: 1B Brian Ragira: 1 for 4, HR, SF, 2 SO
San Jose: SP Martin Agosta: 3.0 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
Miller's four hits paced the Giants' fifteen-hit attack and raised his AVG to .312. Payne, playing his first game for the Giants after a promotion from the Sally League, doubled twice and walked. Ragira connected for his 4th HR.
At least from a statistical perspective, Agosta has been relatively ineffective this year. Through four starts, he has an ERA over 7.00 and a WHIP close to 2.00.
A-: Augusta at Charleston suspended in the 1st inning
(The game is scheduled to be resumed tomorrow as part of a doubleheader.)
