Sacramento and EL Paso played their third straight extra innings game and for the second straight night the home team came out on top. And that's somewhat embarrassing for the RiverCats considering this top of the 12th inning development:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The Chihuahuas are sending a position player, Mike McCoy, to the mound to pitch. Not the first time the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/RiverCats?src=hash">#RiverCats</a> have seen this.</p>&mdash; River Cats (@RiverCats) <a href="https://twitter.com/RiverCats/status/610296659344408576">June 15, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Ty Blach was perfect the first time through the order, retiring his first 10 batters. He ended up with a Quality Start with 2 Runs in 6 innings, and very Blachian peripherals of 4 Ks and 0 BBs. Ty has the second lowest BB/9 in the PCL.  However, the bullpen couldn't' hold the 5-2 lead Blach handed them, and catcher Trevor Brown's throwing error in the bottom of the 9th allowed the tying run to score and send it to extra innings. The game was lost when Curtis Partch walked four (Yes FOUR!) batters in the bottom of the 12th.

Ah well, highlights are few and far between today, so let's watch Juan Perez.

Oh hey, and speaking of walking four batters in an inning, Erie starter Josh Turley began his game by walking the first four Richmond batters he faced. All four would come in to score, with Engel Beltre's two-out double being the big blow, and a Squirrels victory was never seriously challenged again.

Kelby Tomlinson ended his 10 game hit streak, however with his first inning walk he has reached base in 25 of his past 26 games.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Kelby Tomlinson is currently the Eastern League&#39;s best hitter with a .335 batting average. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/VoteKelby?src=hash">#VoteKelby</a> <a href="https://t.co/RvNATde38I">https://t.co/RvNATde38I</a></p>&mdash; Squirrels Baseball (@GoSquirrels) <a href="https://twitter.com/GoSquirrels/status/610434074231095297">June 15, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


The 2-5 hitters, Moreno, Williamson, Harris, and Oropesa all reached base twice, and along with Kelby they scored all six Richmond runs. Oropesa continued his break out season with his 8th HR which is tied for 6th in the EL.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Oropesa hits a bomb as the Squirrels win, 6-2. <a href="http://t.co/B4mtMUzjjY">pic.twitter.com/B4mtMUzjjY</a></p>&mdash; Squirrels Baseball (@GoSquirrels) <a href="https://twitter.com/GoSquirrels/status/610184897626513408">June 14, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Matt Lujan has given up 2 or fewer ER in each of his past four starts, though the longest he's gone in any of those starts has been 6.1 IP.  Still his ERA has been on a steady decline and is now within a half a run of league average (on the high side). Tyler Mizenko, Phil McCormick, and Josh Osich finished up with 4 innings of 1 one hit relief, striking out 5 and walking 1.

Continuing the theme of this day, Ray Black's first start didn't last very long as he walked four of the six batters he faced in the first inning and was removed. He is supposed to start again next Sunday at home in SJ, a game that will be televised on Comcast I believe. Despite the rough start I think the Giants will continue trying this for awhile, as it gives them a chance to get Black regular, scheduled innings.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Something Giants have been thinking about for awhile. Set schedule, no concerns about pitching multiple times a week <a href="https://t.co/Dez0yGmRoP">https://t.co/Dez0yGmRoP</a></p>&mdash; Joe Ritzo (@JoeRitzo) <a href="https://twitter.com/JoeRitzo/status/610213314870685696">June 14, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

High Desert actually didn't have a hit in this game until the fourth, but ultimately made use of 7 walks to go along with 7 hits (including a HR) to score 7 runs.

Hunter Cole extended his hitting streak to 9 games with his first inning blast. Tyler Horan also went deep for his 5th HR of the year, and Slater, Ty Ross and Brandon Bednar all had two hits in the loss. Slater got his BA back over .300 in this series with 10 hits in 19 AB.

Having now played HIgh Desert 11 times in the last 19 days, SJ is through with the Mavericks for the year, which I'm sure the pitchers at least are happy about.

Augusta hitters managed only 6 hits in each of the 7 inning games of this DH. Cristian Paulino and Skyler Ewing had two hits apiece in the opener, including Ewing's 16th 2b of the year. Ewing, somewhat surprisingly has 0 HRs this year in 247 PA. Ryan Jones matched Ewing in the second game with two hits including a double. Andrew Cain's 5th HR of the year was the team's only other XBH in the two games. Aramis Garcia was on base three times via the walk in the double header.

DSL had its traditional Sunday off.

Final thoughts: with the July 2nd IFA signing season coming up soon, Ben Badler has an outstanding piece on why the market is so complicated and generally messed up:

Also, you should be making plans to drive to Sacramento right this very minute!
