Stratton went from having his worst AAA start to his best in a single turn of the rotation.  His ratio of strikes (64) to balls (32)  was much better in this one and consequently his 6k to 0 BB ratio was his best of the season at any level. Indeed it was his first start this year without a BB and the 6 Ks matched his season high. It was also the first game this year in which he hadn't allowed a run. And all of this in Las Vegas, one of the launchiest launching pads in America. While this wasn't a shutout, just by way of perspective, there have only been 3 shutouts in Las Vegas this year (two of them started by Noah Syndergaard and one by Zach Lee).  Just an excellent start for Stratton.

Unfortunately, the bullpen then torched the game not once but twice. Trying to protect a 1-0 lead (thanks to Ryan Lollis' solo HR) in the 9th inning, Cordier gave up a leadoff single and then threw away a pickoff attempt, putting the leadoff batter on 3b. A Sac Fly blew the save and sent it into extra innings.  In the 10th, Lollis helped create two more runs, knocking the first in and scoring the second. But that lead wouldn't be enough either. Cory Gearrin surrendered a two-out two-run HR to tie the game, and then Clay Rapada came in and walked a batter before giving up a game losing double to old friend Brooks Conrad. Tough night!

In addition to his excellent pitching, Stratton was also one of the three Sacramento hitters with multiple hits in the game. He got Cain'd but good!

Well let's check in with the always enlightening Vegas video crew for Ryan Lollis hitting a solo HR.

Richmond was rained out
They were supposed to finish the suspended game from Saturday night and play today's game, but they managed neither. Tomorrow night they will attempt to finish Saturday's game and play Monday's game, with Sunday's game getting rescheduled later in the year.

San Jose lost to Modesto (Rockies), 9-4

So far in four starts with SJ, Jose Reyes' best start was the one in which he surrendered 4 runs in 5.2 IP. It's been tough sledding for Reyes in the Cal. In 17 IP, he's surrendered 22 ER on 24 hits including 4 HRs. He has 10 Ks, 8 BBs, and 2 HB.

By the middle of the 4th, following Corelle Prime's grand slam off Tyler Rogers (another guy who's had a very disappointing year), this game was 9-1 and then several peculiar personnel changes were made which I suppose were all just giving guys rest. Brian Ragira, who was the DH came into the game so SJ played the rest of the game without a DH. Christian Arroyo was given the rest of the night off.

The majority of San Jose's offense came from the bat of UT infielder Brandon Bednar.

Martin Agosta got in two innings of relief work, no doubt just getting him some work in after the All Star break and before an off date. The last guy to come into the game was Jake Smith who was again terrific. He did walk a batter, breaking his streak of 18 consecutive batters retired, but that was all he surrendered and he K'd two more with the hard wipeout slider he's been featuring this year.

They did have a nice moment before the game started though.

Augusta went up against Touki Toussaint in his Braves' debut and Toussaint was pretty much his wild-child self doing everything but hitting the Bull mascot. Johneshwy Fargas reached base 4x in this game in pretty much the most painful way possible, twice getting hit by Toussaint fastballs.  He took his revenge though, in the most Johneshwy way possible stealing his 32nd and 33rd bases of the year.  Later Fargas would punctuate a 3 run 6th inning with a 2 run single to give Augusta the lead. Unfortunately, they handed back both the lead and the game with a sloppy 4 run bottom of the 6th that featured errors from Skyler Ewing and Jeremy Sy and a couple booming doubles. Speaking of doubles, here's Dylan Davis doubling in the first run of the game.:

David Lee made the trip to Rome to see Toussaint and had a few notes:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Toussaint is struggling a bit to find his release.

Well, that burst of offense didn't last long! Chris Shaw, with a single and a walk was the offensive star of the night. Nobody else reached base twice.  The entire SK offense was 5 singles and two walks on this night.  And given that Nicholas Gonzalez surrendered four runs in the 2nd inning, most of the night was a downhill slog for the home fans.

John Riley had a nice April for Augusta, though even that success came with lots of contact issues and soon enough the contact problems took over and the hard contact receded. So far, the re-start with SK hasn't helped him any.

In the Volcanoes TV game recap, there's an extended interview with Jose Vizcaino, Jr. talking about growing up around the majors and lots of other things.  I expect good things from VizIII

Jalen Miller keeps on rolling at the top of the order, having gotten hits in every game thus far. Byron Murray added his 8th double of the season. Dillon Dobson, the 23rd round choice this year out of Appalachian St (another of Ryder Jones' Dad's players) showed off some of his raw power with a double and triple.  Matt Winn, 14th round pick this year out of VMI, hit his first professional HR, while Nate Javier had some good some bad with a solo HR accompanied by a hat trick.

Stetson Woods was the 9th round pick last year out of a Madera High School.  Tyler Cyr, 10th round pick this year out of the fantastically obscure Embry-Riddle U is a hard throwing RHP who announced his presence with authority, striking out the first three batters he saw as a pro! Nicely done TY!

The DSL had it's traditional Sunday off day

* * *

San Jose and AZL are off today, but Richmond once again tries to get in a DH. Lots of TBD in the system schedule today, but All Star Mark Reyes starts for Augusta and Logan Webb will take the mound for his third start in SK.
