Thursday's most notables from the Giants' farm: Juan Perez homered and singled, Will Callaway hit safely in all 3 PA, and Jason Forjet allowed 1 R in 7.0 IP.

AAA: Fresno lost to Oklahoma City 7-3

Fresno: LF Juan Perez: 2 for 4, HR, SO, E

Fresno: SP Mike Kickham: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 BB, 5 K

Perez led off the 3rd inning with his 4th HR.

Miller doubled twice, giving him 4 XBH through his first nine EL games.

A road warrior, Snodgrass has made eight of his last ten starts on the road, and just one third of his 21 appearances have come at home.  Nonetheless, he has maintained a sub-3.50 ERA.

Delfino and Carbonell combined for four of the Giants' seven hits, plus three of their five walks.

Lujan delivered his second straight quality start, keeping his ERA close to 3.00.  Rogers had 2 K in a perfect 7th inning, and Bucardo struck out more than half his batters in 3.0 scoreless IP.

A-: Augusta lost to Asheville 8-2

Augusta: 3B Will Callaway: 3 for 3, 2B
Asheville: 3B Ryan McMahon: 2 for 4, HR, 2B

Augusta: SP Robert Ramer: 5.0 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 2 K--2 HR

Callaway hit safely in all three plate appearances, raising his AVG above .300.  McMahon, who the Rockies drafted in the second round last year, connected for his 16th HR--one four big flies for the Tourists.

Making his sixth start, Ramer allowed a season-high 9 H, while the 2 K matched a season low.  For the season, he has 38 H and 30 K in 35.1 IP.

ssA: Salem-Keizer lost to Eugene 1-0

Salem-Keizer: CF Seth Harrison: 1 for 3, BB, SO, SB, CS

Salem-Keizer: SP Jason Forjet: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K
