Richmond: 1B Michael Ambort: 0 for 2, 2 BB
Richmond: SP David Mixon: 7.0 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K--1 HB
New Britain: SP Deolis Guerra: 8.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
Stromsmoe had two of the Flying Squirrels' three hits (all singles), raising his AVG to .286. With two walks, Ambort also reached base twice.
Mixon had another fine start, despite allowing a season-high 8 H. Still, his BAA is just .230, and his WHIP is barely above 1.00. For the season, he still has more strikeouts than hits (59 H vs 62 K in 72.0 IP). The 21-year-old Guerra, whom the Twins acquired from the Mets as part of the Johan Santana trade, had his longest start of the year. He has a 2.41 ERA through six Eastern League starts.
A+: San Jose defeated Modesto 4-3 (14 innings)
San Jose: 1B Brandon Belt: 2 for 6, HR, BB, SB
San Jose: 3B Drew Biery: 2 for 6, HR, SO, SB
San Jose: SP Eric Stolp: 7.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
San Jose: RP David Quinowski: 3.0 IP, 6 K
San Jose: RP Jason Stoffel: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 K--2 WP
Two of four Giants with two hits each, Belt and Biery each had their 6th HR. Belt's HR led off the 2nd inning; Biery's HR tied the game with two outs in the 12th inning. They also each had a stolen base, with Belt's 13th SB and Biery's 4th SB.
Stolp pitched at least seven innings for the third time in his last four starts. He had a 15/5 GO/FO line. Quinowski had perhaps the most dominant line of his pro career with 6 K in 3.0 perfect IP. The 6 K may have also been a career high. For the season his peripheral stats are now 21 H, 7 BB, and 29 K in 22.2 IP. Stoffel allowed a run in the top of the 12th inning before the Giants rallied for a run in the bottom half to continue the game into the 13th inning.
