Sacramento had their hitting shoes on  in winning this extra innings affair with 15 hits and 21 baserunners. Their 6 doubles was one off a season high. All 8 of the starting position players reached base multiple times, and six had multiple hits. The winning run in the 11th came via a Hector Sanchez Sac Fly. Hector had a fine game, reaching base four times including two of the teams doubles. Darren Ford also had a big game with three hits, including this run scoring double

Chris Stratton went five solid innings, and improved his control over his first start, throwing about 2/3 of his pitches for strikes. He left after just five though, so the bullpen had to cover the rest of the game and they did so almost perfectly. Only Cory Gearrin allowed a run, surrendering a leadoff triple to Rymer Liriano, who came in to score on a groundout. Liriano was listed as the Padres #6 prospect in BA to begin the season, but with trades and promotions it looks like he's #2 for them at this point.

Good to see Okert come back with a fairly clean inning after his lately struggles.  Erik Cordier takes over the Sacramento closer mantle with Strickland and Broadway both in SF and he had a perfect 11th for the save.

And, yeah, let's give a huge round of applause to Michael Broadway. This is why these guys keep chasing it:

Tyler Beede had another fantastic performance in his second AA game, and upped the K power in this one getting 6 strike outs in six innings pitched.  He threw 61 strikes in 97 pitches so the control was a little looser than in his first game and he had a little more traffic.  But in the end he was one pitch away from a scoreless performance.  DH (and AA vet) Dean Green's two-run HR in the 6th was the only damage done against Beede and cost him a victory as he left after that inning with a 2-2 tie.

Tyler Mizenko had a classic LOLPitcherWins performance as he surrendered the lead to Erie in the 8th but came away with a W when Richmond scored two in the bottom of the inning. Kelby Tomlinson tied it up with his third hit (and 5th time on base), and then Rando Moreno brought Jax home for the win on a squeeze bunt. Myles Schroder also had a perfect night at the plate, going 3 for 3 with a sac bunt.

Josh Osich pitched a perfect 9th with 2 Ks to preserve the win. Osich has really been pitching well lately. In his last four appearances (4 IP) he's not allowed a base runner and had 7 Ks. Osich has now appeared in 76 AA games over three seasons, pitching a little over 90 innings in the EL. With the Strickland and Broadway promotions to SF could a AAA promotion finally be in store for Josh? Here's hoping...

This is turning into a pretty classic High Desert series, with 36 total runs scored in the first two games (of a four game set).  And Martin Agosta, stepping into this tough pitching environment, had what we can recognize as a pretty classic Agosta appearance, mixing Ks and Runs allowed with wild abandon. The lion's share of the damage was done immediately, as the Mavericks scored 4 runs in the 1st inning. After that, things quieted down, though Krukow would have been most disappointed in Agosta's inability to get a shut down inning. When SJ finally scored 2 runs in the 6th to get back into the game, Agosta, with an assist from Tyler Rogers immediately handed them back to the Mavericks as they scored three more in the bottom of the inning.  And despite the Giants putting four runs up in the final two innings, HD held on to their lead for the win.

Newly named All Star Hunter Cole had a monster game with 4 hits, 4 RBIs a triple and his 4th HR.  Cole is leading the Cal league in BA at .343. He's also third in OBP at .404 and 6th in OPS at .912.  Is the 26th rounder firmly on the Matt Duffy track? Cole was essentially a draft and follow pick last year, as the Giants hadn't made up their minds to actually sign him until seeing how he performed in the Cape Cod League the summer after being drafted. He hit .353 in the CCL and intrigued the Giants enough to entice him away from returning to college as a senior. As old Minor Lines friend gobroks postulated on Twitter last night, Cole's "toolsy guy whose performance disappoints in college" is reminiscent of somebody the Giants selected this week as well:

Augusta got a somewhat shaky performance out of starter Pat Young, but in a reversal of their early season fortunes, the bullpen helped out with 3.1 shutdown innings. Alvarado had to work around an unearned run when Skyler Ewing booted what should have been the final out of the game, but a fly out to Fargas ended it happy.

After a quiet few days and a move down the lineup, Cristian Paulino was back up in the 2 spot and back to mashing baseballs, with a double and a triple in this one. With 2 Runs scored and 2 RBIs Paulino was involved with nearly every run the Greenjackets scored, excepting only Jeremy Sy's solo HR in the first. Johneshwy Fargas is again on one his CS binges, as he's been CS for the 9th, 10th, and 11th times this season over his last 4 games. He's now been successful on 27 of his 38 attempts for a 70% success ratio.

The Giants, at 8-3, have the second best record in the league.  They are third in the league in runs scored (though the Yankees1, who are a half game behind the Giants in their division, are 20 runs ahead with 107 runs scored in 12 games) and first in HRs (which is very different from most of the Giants' recent DSL teams).

Sandro Fabian got in on the HR fun in this one, hitting his first of the season. The HR was Fabian's only hit, but he reached base 4 times. Alilzon Rodriguez, the rarely used DH who signed a six figure deal in 2013, also hit his 1st HR and first of his career. Alilzon has a power hitter's build, but he's had little success thus far in his relatively few appearances. In all the Giants managed 11 hits, including six for XB, and added two BBs and four HB (which is by no menas an unusual total in a DSL game).

Victor Concepcion continued his dominance of the league. In his second DSL season, the 6' 170 lb RHP now has 20 Ks to 2 BBs in 17.1 IP.

* * *

Jack Snodgrass, who has made his first two AAA appearances in relief, piggybacking on Jake Peavy rehabs, finally gets his first AAA start tonight. And for those who like velocity, Kyle Crick and Chase Johnson are scheduled to go for Richmond and SJ. Matthew Gage gets the Augusta assignment.
