Saturday playoff highlight from the Giants farm: Johnny Monell doubled twice.

AA: Richmond lost to New Hampshire 4-3
(losing the best-of-five championship series in four games)

Richmond: RF Francisco Peguero: 2 for 4, SO, E
Richmond: DH Johnny Monell: 2 for 4, 2 2B

Richmond: SP Justin Fitzgerald: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 9 K--1 HB
New Hampshire: SP Deck McGuire: 3.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Monell had his 3rd and 4th doubles of the playoffs.  Offensively, he was the Flying Squirrels' better hitter in the post-season with a .478 AVG.  Peguero also had two hits.  He was one of six Squirrels to hit better than .300 in the post-season.

Fitzgerald met the minimum requirements for a so-called quality start (3 ER in 6.0 IP), while striking out one third of his 27 batters.  He had as many as 9 K just once in his last ten regular season starts.  He threw 110 pitches (67 strikes).  McGuire, whom the Blue Jays selected eleventh overall a year ago, was limited to just 3.0 IP, while throwing 55 pitches (35 strikes).  He had made a brief relief appearance earlier in the series.
