Monday highlight from the Giants' farm: Mac Williamson homered among three hits.

AAA: Fresno lost to New Orleans 2-1

Fresno: CF Ryan Lollis: 1 for 2, 2 BB
Fresno: C Jackson Williams: 2 for 4, 2B, PO

Fresno: SP Eric Hacker: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K--2 HR

Drawing both of the Grizzlies' walks, Lollis reached base three times. Williams had two hits, including his 15th double, improving his AVG to .268.

Hacker allowed back-to-back solo HRs in the 3rd inning but otherwise had 6.0 scoreless IP. He had allowed just 1 HR in his previous seven starts, and his HR/IP remains comfortably below 0.10.

AA: Richmond had an off-day
(their final scheduled off-day this year)

A+: San Jose had an off-day
(their final scheduled off-day this year)

A-: Augusta defeated Lakewood 7-4

Augusta: C Joseph Staley: 1 for 3, 2B, BB, SO, SB

Augusta: SP Edwin Escobar: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 K--1 HR, 1 WP
Augusta: RP Kyle Vazquez: 1.0 IP, 1 K

While all nine GreenJackets in the lineup had a hit, Staley's 11th double was their lone XBH. Despite an AVG of just .236, he has an OPS above .700 in 178 AB this year.

Although Escobar allowed a couple baserunners per inning, he kept the damage to just two runs and maintained his 3.50 ERA. Vazquez pitched a perfect 9th inning for his 6th save.

(after scoring nine runs in the 11th inning)

Salem-Keizer: RF Mac Williamson: 3 for 5, HR
Salem-Keizer: DH Rafael Rodriguez: 2 for 4, 2 2B, GiDP

Salem-Keizer: SP Raymundo Montero: 4.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 4 K--1 WP, 1 BK

Williamson, the Giants' third rounder this year, had his 3rd HR in his last nine games. He entered the night hitting .293/.363/.549 through his first 20 pro games. Jones also had three hits to get his AVG above .240. Rodriguez had his 7th and 8th doubles. He has a six game hitting streak, although he has played just three games since mid-July.

Montero has not pitched past the 4th inning in his last four starts.

DSL: Giants lost to Nationals 4-3 (11 innings)

Dominican: SS Rando Moreno: 3 for 5, 2B, SO, SB
Dominican: SP Eber Guzman: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Moreno (20.2 y.o.) had the Gigantes' only multi-hit line, raising his AVG to .254. Guzman (19.4 y.o.) had a quality start for just the third time in ten starts.
