Ishikawa hit his 9th HR while reaching base three times.  Perez's three singles paced the Grizzlies' fourteen-hit attack.  He has a .341 AVG in 85 PCL AB, although just a .156 AVG in 45 MLB AB.

Kickham had his second straight quality start.  His start included a 7/1 GO/FO line, and he threw just 86 pitches (56 strikes).

AA: Richmond defeated Harrisburg 7-3
(allowing the tying run in the 8th inning before rallying for four runs for the win)

Among five Flying Squirrels with multiple hits, Harris his his 10th HR, Stromsmoe doubled twice, and Duffy led the way with three hits, including his 18th double.  Although he has not spent the entire season in the Eastern League, Harris's 10 HRs are second most on the team.

Crick had his second straight quality start.  With six straight starts with 2 R or less, his ERA is down to 3.21 after seventeen starts.  McCormick struck out three of his five batters.  His ERA remains close to 4.50.  Strickland pitched a perfect 9th inning.  Since his promotion, his component stats are 15 H, 4 BB, 3 HR, and 26 K in 20.2 IP.

Blair, who had his 20th double, was one of four Giants with two hits.  In July, he has hit .408/.443/.549 in 71 AB.

Bouncing back from his previous two starts, which included half of his 22 ER allowed this year, Kurrasch matched a season-high with 8.0 IP.  Despite a K/IP below 0.50, he has a 2.87 ERA through 75.1 IP.

Paulino, Moreno, and Lofton each reached base three times.  All three have AVGs below .260.  Then again, just three GreenJackets have an AVG above .260 (minimum 100 AB) this year.

In his second start, Ramer allowed over half his batters (10 of 19) to reach base.
