Saturday highlight from the Giants' farm: Jack Snodgrass had 7.0 shutout IP.

AAA: Fresno lost to Nashville 9-1

Fresno: Emmanuel Burriss: 2 for 4, 3B
Fresno: CF Ryan Lollis: 2 for 3, BB, CS

Fresno: SP Yusmeiro Petit: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
Nashville: SP Claudio Vargas: 7.0 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K--1 HB

Among four Grizzlies hitters with two hits each, Burriss tripled in his first PCL game for just his second XBH this year, and Lollis reached base three times, raising his OBP to .423 in 23 PCL games.

Petit had a start with less than 6.0 IP for just the second time in the last three months (17 starts). The Brewers' 34-year-old Vargas, did not allow an earned run.

AA: Richmond lost to Harrisburg 1-0

Richmond: SS Ehire Adrianza: 2 for 3, SB
Harrisburg: CF Brian Goodwin: 1 for 4, HR, SO

Richmond: SP Chris Gloor: 8.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K--1 HR, 1 IBB
Harrisburg: SP Ryan Perry: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K--1 IBB

With two singles, Adrianza was the lone Flying Squirrel to reach base twice. His OPS remains below .600, though. The Nationals' Goodwin homered with two outs in the bottom of the 8th inning for the game's only run.

Bouncing back from his last start (3 ER in 4.2 IP), Gloor has now allowed more than 1 ER just twice in his eight starts. He ended up taking the loss in his first complete game. Making his ninth start, Perry had his longest start of the year. Since joining the Senators' rotation, he has a 1.54 ERA.

A+: San Jose defeated Inland Empire 10-0
(after scoring seven runs in the 2nd inning)

San Jose: DH Adam Duvall: 1 for 4, HR
San Jose: CF Jarrett Parker: 2 for 5, 3B, 2B
Inland Empire: 3B Kaleb Cowart: 1 for 2, 2B, 2 BB

San Jose: SP Jack Snodgrass: 7.0 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

Parker had his 6th triple and 17th double, improving his season line to .255/.370/.438. Duvall had his organization-leading 23rd HR. Angels' prospect Cowart had another strong game reaching base three times.

Snodgrass matched his longest start of the year, pitching seven full innings. The 7.0 scoreless IP lowered his ERA to 4.20. With just 1 K, his K/IP slipped below 0.67.

A-: Augusta lost to Charleston 6-0

Augusta: CF Jesus Galindo: 2 for 4
Augusta: 1B Garrett Buechele: 2 for 3

Augusta: SP Paul Davis: 6.0 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

Galindo continues to be red hot. Over his last eight games, he has 13 H and 9 BB, reaching base nearly three times per game. For the year, his OBP is now up to .330. Buechele also had a couple singles, raising his AVG to .274.

Making his eighth start since joining the rotation, Davis allowed more than 2 ER for the second time. His ERA remains below 3.50.

ssA: Salem-Keizer lost to Everett 11-6

Salem-Keizer: SS Matthew Duffy: 2 for 4, 2B, BB, SB
Salem-Keizer: 1B Stephen Yarrow: 1 for 2, HR

Salem-Keizer: SP Lorenzo Mendoza: 2.2 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 1 K--1 HR, 1 PO

With a double, single and walk, Duffy improved his season line to .246/.362/.287 through his first 167 AB. Yarrow, who entered the game after Joseph Rapp was ejected in the 4th inning, had his 2nd HR.

With hits allowed to half of his batters, Mendoza allowed new season highs with 8 H and 5 ER.

R: Giants defeated Angels 2-1

Scottsdale: SS John Polonius: 2 for 4, 2B
Scottsdale: 3B Shayne Houck: 2 for 3, 2 2B, BB

Scottsdale: SP Brian Burres: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
Scottsdale: RP Matthew Lujan: 4.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K--1 WP
Scottsdale: RP E.J. Encinosa: 1.0 IP, 1 K

Polonius and Houck, who entered the game with one double each, combined for three doubles in this game. Polonius has a .370 AVG through his first 15 pro games.

Burres, who had 15 starts for the Grizzlies before going on the DL, made his first rehab appearance. Lujan effectively was the starting pitcher in this game, and his 4.0 scoreless IP would perhaps make this his best start of the year. He did have 2 BB after having just 2 BB previously this year. Encinosa pitched a perfect 9th inning.

DSL: Giants at Cubs2 suspended after 3 innings

Dominican: SP Luis Pino: 3.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

After having allowed just 1 ER in his first three appearances, Pino (17.9 y.o.) gave up 2 ER in his fourth appearance, presuming this game eventually becomes official.
