Sacramento's 2-3-4 hitters hit four HRs in this game among their seven hits, but it wasn't enough to get the victory as the Chihuahuas picked up 14 hits and 7 walks against Sacramento pitching. Adam Duvall's HR was his league leading 14th. Ishikawa's was his 3rd of the season, and 3rd of his last five games, and his 3-hit night could have been even better:

Once and future Giant Kevin Frandsen hit his 1st and 2nd HRs of the season.

All the offense wasn't enough in large part because minor league FA pickup Nik Turley continues to be pretty bad.  This was the third time in his four PCL starts that he surrendered 7 runs in less than five innings, which is a tough hill to climb back up from.  A Ronny Cedeno double in the 8th inning scored Hector Sanchez to tie the game and ultimately send it into extras, where they didn't necessarily use all their outs wisely:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Well that&#39;s a first. Darren Ford has just struck out to end the inning on an automatic strike called for a pitch clock violation.</p>&mdash; River Cats (@RiverCats) <a href="https://twitter.com/RiverCats/status/609939690465026051">June 14, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Steven Okert, who lost the game in the 11th, continues to scuffle. In his last 7 appearances, covering 8 IP, he's given up 8 ER.

Sacramento goes for the series split today but El Paso has had their number so far this year. The RiverCats are just 4-10 vs. the Chihuahuas and just 1-6 in El Paso.

Kyle Crick actually had his best strike to ball ratio in his last four starts with 41 strikes in 77 pitches, but it wasn't enough to get him past 3 IP.  After a 1-2-3 first inning he surrendered 4 BBs and 4 Hits over the next two innings. He was visited briefly by the trainer in the 3rd inning but continued pitching through that inning. But he never seemed to be in rhythm as labored through the few innings he did pitch. He now has 36 BBs vs 40 Ks in 41.1 IP

Kelby Tomlinson continues to be white hot at the plate. His hitting streak is up to 10 games, and he has 15 multi-hit games in his last 25. He also stole his 14th base in this game, which ties him for 3rd in the Eastern League. Mac Williamson, with another walk is up to an 8.4% bb rate and his K rate is now down to 18.8%. He got his 36th and 37th RBIs in this game.

The two teams are now up to 57 runs in the first three games of this four game series.  And think: this was a 0-0 tie after 3 innings! SJ used 19 hits, including 7 XBH, plus 4 BBs and a HB to produce a season high 14 runs. Four Giants had three or more hits, including 1b Ben Turner and C Jeff Arnold in a very consistent attack. Six of the Giants hitters reached base safely at least 3x in this game.

Chase Johnson didn't show his best stuff in this game, but any win you can get in High Desert is a moral victory.  His start could easily have gone worse, but he got DP's to end trouble in both the 5th and 6th.  He wasn't so lucky in the 7th however, ultimately getting relieved after allowing two hits a walk and a WP, and Jake Smith immediately gave up a run scoring double to complete Johnson's line.

Augusta's game with West Virginia was postponed due to rain
They will play a double header today to make it up.

The two highest scoring offenses in the DSL, each averaging over 8 runs per game, got together for a tidy little 4-3 affair. The Giants still managed 11 hits in this one but the league's best HR team produced only 3 doubles.  They had one BB to 8 Ks in this game. Francisco Medina had three more hits, all singles, to boost his OPS up to 1.074.

Raffi Vizcaino had another excellent start. The one-time $200k signee hasn't given up a run in his last two starts and has 15 Ks to 1 BB  in those two outings.

Big news for today's games:

I assume this is mostly to just get him some innings, but any Ray Black appearance is an exciting one.
