minor lines, 7/25/14

Friday highlights from the Giants' farm: Kyle Crick had 11 K and 1 R in 6.0 IP, and, Chris Heston also allowed just 1 R in 6.0 IP.

AAA: Fresno defeated El Paso 9-7
(after leading 8-1 entering the 5th inning)

Fresno: RF Juan Perez: 2 for 4, 2B, BB, SO
Fresno: 1B Travis Ishikawa: 3 for 5, 2 2B
Fresno: C Andrew Susac: 2 for 5, E'
El Paso: RF Rymer Liriano: 3 for 4, BB

Fresno: SP Chris Heston: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Perez and Ishikawa each reached base three times for the Grizzlies.  Perez hit his 10th double, and Ishikawa his 7th and 8th doubles.  Susac was the third Grizzly with a multi-hit line.  Liriano, who was considered a top 100 prospect before needing Tommy John surgery and missing all of last season, reached base four times in his third PCL game.

Five days earlier Heston had 7.2 scoreless IP against the Chihuahuas, and last night he was almost as good with another quality start.  He has a 3.67 ERA through 21 starts--much improved over his 5.80 ERA last year in 19 PCL starts.

AA: Richmond lost to Erie 2-0

Richmond: 2B Matt Duffy: 1 for 4, 2B

Richmond: SP Kyle Crick: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 11 K

Duffy's double in the 1st inning was the lone hit for the Flying Squirrels.

With 11 K, Crick set a new season high and matched his career high.  He threw 53 of 92 pitches for strikes.

A+: San Jose defeated Visalia 4-2 (12 innings)
(after allowing a run in the top of the 12th inning)

San Jose: 3B Mitch Delfino: 2 for 4, 2B, BB, SO, SB

San Jose: SP Kendry Flores: 5.1 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
Visalia: SP Braden Shipley: 7.0 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K--1 HB

With his 19th double, a single, and a walk, Delfino improved his season line to .282/.318/.405 through 393 AB.

Flores had his third straight start with 1 R or less.  After an ERA close to 6.00 in ten starts in April and May, he has a 2.31 ERA in eight starts in June and July.  The Diamondbacks' Shipley, who is perhaps one of the top 50 prospects in the minors, had another fine start, in part exacting a measure of revenge for the season-high 8 ER he yielded four weeks ago in his last start facing the Giants.

A-: Augusta defeated Savannah 5-2

Augusta: 3B Ryan Jones: 3 for 4
Augusta: 2B Jeremy Sy: 2 for 4, HR
Augusta: RF Cristian Paulino: 2 for 3, 2B

Augusta: SP Chase Johnson: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 K--1 WP
Augusta: RP Jake Smith: 1.0 IP, 3 K
Augusta: RP Daniel Slania: 1.0 IP, 1 K

Sy led off the 8th inning with his 10th HR.  Jones and Paulino also had multi-hit performances.

Johnson had one of his better starts this year, receiving just his second win in seventeen starts.  Smith, who had 3 K, and Slania, who received his 11th save, each had 1.0 perfect IP.

ssA: Salem-Keizer defeated Spokane 5-3

Salem-Keizer: DH Travious Relaford: 2 for 3, BB, SB

Salem-Keizer: SP Jose Reyes: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K--1 HR

Reyes delivered a quality start for the fourth time in his last five starts.

Scottsdale: RF Randy Ortiz: 2 for 4, HR, 3B, BB, SO, CS

Scottsdale: SP Michael Santos: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K--2 WP
Scottsdale: RP Connor Kaden: 1.0 IP, 2 K

Ortiz connected for his 1st pro HR (in four seasons).  He also had his 14th pro triple.

Santos has delivered exactly 5.0 IP in all seven of his starts, including three starts with 0 ER.  After allowing 7 H over his last four appearances, Kaden had 2 K in 1.0 perfect IP for his sixth pro appearance.

DSL: Gigantes lost to Rojos 5-4

Dominican: C Jose Morles: 2 for 4, SO
Dominican: SP Eber Guzman: 6.1 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K--1 HB, 1 WP
