Oropesa's four singles paced the Flying Squirrels' twelve-hit attack and raised his AVG to .233.  Duffy reached base three times, with his 17th double being the Squirrels' lone XBH.  Duffy continues to have an impressive season.  With multiple hits in four of his last six games, his season line stands at .340/.409/.448 through 315 AB.

Ragira was the game's lone player with two hits.  His AVG is .246.

Flores delivered his second straight highlight-worthy start.  His ERA is 4.34 after seventeen starts.  McVay pitched a perfect 8th inning.  Urias, the Dodgers' top pitching prospect coming off his Futures Game appearance, walked the Giants' leadoff batter but then retired each of his next nine batters.  He departed after just 40 pitches (25 strikes).

Salem-Keizer: SP Jason Forjet: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 7 K--1 HR

Arroyo's three hits raised his AVG to .282.  Jones, who had 6 HRs in each of the past two summers, hit his 1st HR this year.  Pujadas' 2nd HR tied the game in the 9th inning.

Forjet had 17 K and just 2 BB over his first three starts, which each went 5.0 IP, but then 9 K and 6 BB over his subsequent three starts, which each went 6.0 IP.  Last night his seventh start returned to the kind of performance in his first three starts.
