minor lines, 5/12/14

Monday highlights from the Giants' farm: Jeremy Sy broke a slump with a three-hit game and his first home run of the year, and Tony Abreu picked up a double and a home run for Fresno. Also, San Jose and Richmond didn't lose, since they didn't play.

Greetings, all!  The amazing Steve S is on assignment, so in the meantime, I'll be filling in this week.  All the compliments should be posted in the comments.  All complaints should be emailed directly to Grant Brisbee.

Tony Abreu collected Fresno's only extra-base hits, with his fourth home run and eighth double.
