Monday's most notables from the Giants' farm: Kyle Crick had 10 K, and Adam Duvall had 2 XBH among 3 H.
AAA: Fresno lost to Sacramento 6-4
(after leading 4-3 entering the 7th inning)
Fresno: CF Gary Brown: 2 for 4, HBP, SO
Fresno: 1B Adam Duvall: 3 for 5, 2 2B, SO
Fresno: SP Chris Heston: 6.2 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
Duvall has 4 XBH among 6 H in two games since being optioned back to the Grizzlies. Like Duvall, Brown also reached base three times, improving his OBP to .323.
Five days earlier, Heston had allowed just 1 R in 8.0 IP to the RiverCats, but tonight the RiverCats got him back with 5 ER--the most he had allowed since the RiverCats also got 5 ER against him at the end of May.
AA: Richmond lost to Akron 3-1
(with the Aeros scoring twice in the 3rd inning)
Richmond: RF Jarrett Parker: 2 for 4, 2 2B
Richmond: 1B Ricky Oropesa: 3 for 4, 2B
Richmond: SP Kyle Crick: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 10 K
Parker and Oropesa had 3 XBH as they combined for five of the Flying Squirrels' eight hits.
Crick struck out nearly half of his batters (10 of 21). With a lack of run support, the 2 ER in the 3rd inning were enough to hand him the loss. He threw 99 pitches (62 strikes).
A+: San Jose lost to Stockton 7-0
San Jose: SS Brandon Bednar: 2 for 4
San Jose: SP Matt Lujan: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K--1 HR
Bednar had his third straight multi-hit game. He has hit safely in all six of his Cal League games.
Lujan delivered his second straight quality start but suffered his first loss in three Cal League starts.
A-: Augusta lost to Savannah 6-1
Augusta: RF Tyler Horan: 3 for 4, SB
Augusta: SP Christian Jones: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Horan had half of the GreenJackets' six hits (all singles), raising his AVG to .280.
Jones made his fifth straight quality start but was credited as the losing pitcher for the second time in that span.

Scottsdale: RP Connor Kaden: 1.0 IP, 3 K
Arenado and Potter both singled twice. Their AVGs are .313 and .118.
Making his tenth pro start, Vander Tuig had 7 K, more than doubling his previous career high (3 K). Kaden, making his pro debut, struck out all three batters in the 6th inning.
DSL: Gigantes defeated Red Sox 10-5
Dominican: 3B Richard Rodriguez: 3 for 4, 2B, BB, 2 SB
