The highlights on a night when two of the Giants' four full-season affiliates had the day off: (a) Kevin Frandsen had three hits to keep his AVG above .500 over his last nine games; (b) Ben Woodbury also had three hits, to like Frandsen keep his AVGo comfortably above .300; and (c) Andrew Reichard had six shutout innings in his first start of the season.

AAA: Fresno lost to Salt Lake 5-3

Fresno: SS Kevin Frandsen: 3 for 5, 2B
Fresno: DH Joe Borchard: 1 for 3, HR, BB, 2 SO
Salt Lake: RF Terry Evans: 2 for 4, HR, BB, 2 SO, SB
Salt Lake: CF Sean Rodriguez: 1 for 5, HR, 3 SO

Fresno: RHP Kevin Pucetas: 4.0 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 6 K--2 HR, 1 WP, 1 E
Fresno: LHP Alex Hinshaw: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 4 K
Fresno: RHP Ramon Ortiz: 1.0 IP, 2 K

Frandsen has had multiple hits in seven of nine games since being sent back to Fresno.  He has an AVG above .500 during that time, and tonight he accounted for over half of the Grizzlies' five hits.  Borchard had his 3rd HR in ten PCL games.  The Angels' Rodriguez homered again, his 21st HR.  Evans added his 13th HR and his 13th SB.

Making his eleventh start, Pucetas had perhaps his worst start of the year.  It was his shortest start of the year as he matched a season high with 5 ER, raising his ERA nearly a half run to 3.75.  Hinshaw and Ortiz combined to strike out six of the thirteen batters they faced in the final three innings.

AA: Connecticut had a scheduled off-day

A+: San Jose had a scheduled off-day
(Their next scheduled off-day is for their all-star break June 22-24.)

A-: Augusta defeated Savannah 7-2

Augusta: DH Ben Woodbury: 3 for 5, 2B
Augusta: CF Dom Duggan: 2 for 3, 2 SH, SB, PO

Augusta: RHP Andrew Reichard: 6.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

With three of the GreenJackets' nine hits, Woodbury raised his AVG to .330.  Duggan and Perez also had multi-hit lines, raising their respective AVGs to .227 and .259.  They also now have 12 and 9 SBs, respectively.  The Mets' 17-year-old Marte has generally struggled this year with a sub-.600 OPS, but he had his 4th HR tonight.

After nine relief appearances, Reichard made his first start of the year.  He faced just two batters over the minimum in 6.0 scoreless IP, which improved his ERA to 3.77.  Last summer, he started eleven of fifteen appearances in the NWL.
