minor lines, 8/5/14

Tuesday highlight from the Giants' farm: Mario Lisson homered while reaching base four times.

AAA: Fresno defeated Salt Lake 6-5
(scoring the winning run in the 8th inning)

Fresno: DH Mark Minicozzi: 1 for 2, HR, SO
Fresno: 3B Nick Noonan: 2 for 3, 2 2B
Salt Lake: C John Buck: 3 for 3, HR, 2 2B, BB

Fresno: SP Kelvin Marte: 6.0 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 1 K--2 HR

Minicozzi hit his 9th HR before being removed for a pinch hitter in the 6th inning.  Noonan, with his 11th and 12th doubles, was the lone Grizzly with two hits.  His PCL AVG remains below .250, though.  The 34-year-old Buck, who is currently with the Angels playing in the minors for the first time in four years, had a big game with 3 XBH and reaching base in all four plate appearances.

Marte came up shy of a quality start in his second PCL start.

AA: Richmond lost to Binghamton 9-6
(after training 9-0 entering the bottom of the 8th inning)

Richmond: 3B Mario Lisson: 2 for 3, HR, 2B, 2 BB, SO, E
Richmond: RF Elliott Blair: 3 for 4, 2B

Richmond: SP Adalberto Mejia: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K--1 WP
Binghamton: SP Tyler Pill: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 8 K

Lisson hit his 14th HR while reaching base four times.  Blair had three hits in his second game as a Flying Squirrel.

Mejia made just his third start in the last month.  Pill, the younger brother of ex-Giants Brett Pill, made a fine start.  The Mets' farmhand has a 3.49 ERA in eighteen EL starts this year.

A+: San Jose lost to Bakersfield 8-2
(after trailing 6-0 entering the 4th inning)

San Jose: 3B Mitch Delfino: 2 for 4, 2B, SO
San Jose: DH Tyler Horan: 1 for 3, HR, BB

San Jose: SP Pat Young: 4.0 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 2 K--2 HR

Horan has homered in two of four games since his promotion.  Delfino had two of the Giants' other three hits.

Young allowed more than 5 ER for just the second time this year.  His ERA rose above 5.50.

A-: Augusta lost to Greenville 8-4
(after trailing 5-2 entering the 3rd inning)

Augusta: 3B Will Callaway: 2 for 3, 3B, 2B, BB, CS, E

Augusta: SP Joan Gregorio: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K--1 HB
Greenville: SP Trey Ball: 6.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K

With his 1st triple and 2nd double in eight SAL games this year, Callaway was the lone GreenJacket with two hits.

Gregorio allowed the big, croooked number in the 2nd inning but still managed his third straight start with at least 6.0 IP.  Ball, whom the Red Sox drafted seventh overall a year ago, had perhaps his best start this year.  He has a 5.33 ERA through eighteen starts.

ssA: Salem-Keizer had the second two of its three-day all-star break
(The North and South all-stars tied 0-0 in 10 innings.)

South: SS Christian Arroyo: 0 for 3, SO
South: 2B-SS Trevious Relaford: 0 for 4, SO

South: RP JoseEEE Reyes: 1.0 IP
South: RP Eury Sanchez: 1.0 IP, 1 K

The Volcanoes were represented with both starting middle infielders, but Arroyo and Relaford had a combined oh-fer in a game that had just nine hits.  I suspect this is not the most famous 0-0 tie ever played in Eugene (i.e., 1983 Civil War).

Reyes and Sanchez, the Volcanoes' two pitching representatives, pitched perfect 2nd and 4th innings.

R: Giants defeated Dodgers 7-1

Scottsdale: C Aramis Garcia: 3 for 4, 2B, BB, PB

Scottsdale: SP Matthew Gage: 4.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K--2 WP

Garcia had a big game reaching base four times but also allowed his 6th passed ball in just eight games.

Gage had a career-high 8 K in his tenth pro appearance.  He had had just 11 K in his previous nine appearances.  His component stats now include 15 H, 4 BB, and 19 K in 21.2 IP.

DSL: Gigantes leading Yankees1 15-13 (suspended in 11th inning due to rain)

Dominican: LF Jean Angomas: 4 for 6, 2 2B, HBP, SB
Dominican: RP Jose De La Cruz: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K--1 WP, 1 BK

With four hits, Angomas raised his AVG above .300.  De La Cruz entered the game in the 2nd inning and provided 3.1 scoreless IP in long relief before not retiring either batter in the 6th inning.
