SF Giants Minor Lines, 6/29

New, 60 comments

The system was technically perfect on 6/29 winning every single game started on this date!

Spotlight on Defense, good and bad! First let the announcer set the stage... build the drama.... then....

Dat speed though. Woosh! Go Johneshwy! Fargas also bunted for a single to start a four-run rally and stole two bases (though one was very oddly and incorrectly IMHO scored a CS/E).

On the other end of the spectrum, here was an actual play that happened in Salem:

Sacramento busted out the hitting sticks in this one, piling up 14 runs on 20 hits and 11 BBs. Carlos Triunfel had the big game, but the night was really busted open by a 6 run 7th inning which featured a PH Grand Slam from Adam Duvall (his 16th) and then Kelby Tomlinson followed up with his first PCL HR for back to back jobs.

Much of the offensive outburst came at the expense of Tyler Pill, brother of old friend Brett Pill, who seems to have stalled his progress through the Mets system as more exciting arms stream past him.

Clayton Blackburn's night was cut short by pre-ordained pitch count. With both Matt Cain and Jake Peavy rehabbing with Sacramento this month, Blackburn had been working out of the pen since June 9th so they didn't want to extend him too far. Josh Osich ended things with his second appearance in AAA. He allowed one unearned run (on a walk, a defensive indifference [otherwise known as an uncredited SB] and a dropped fly ball), but he K'd 2 of the 5 batters he faced.

Richmond came within a whisper of getting shut out 1-0 twice in a single night.  After having no success at all in the bifurcated first game which started Saturday night and ended Monday night, they went into the final inning of the second game once again down 1-0.

Myles Schroder led off the final inning by reaching on a K/WP. Jax then followed up with his second hit of the night, and with one out PH Hunter Cole rolled a perfectly placed swinging bunt down the 3b line to load the bases. Then Rando Moreno stepped up to the plate and showed how thin the margin between winning and losing can be:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/2wq-v0RmNQw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Adalberto threw 6 innings of near perfect ball. It's once again a little puzzling to me that his stuff and command dont induce more swing thrus, but he's doing a fantastic job of pitching to weak contact thus far in his return. Derek Law finished it off, which gives me a great opportunity to show Derek Law pitching in all his funky glory. Too bad this K was on the fastball rather than that killer curve he has that I love

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/TRmoQWrJXWk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

As a side note, this game featured BOTH Juan Ciriaco's and both figured in the final inning. The Giants' Ciriaco PR for Jax in the top of the 7th and scored the eventual winning run, while the Rockies' Ciriaco doubled off Law in the bottom of the 7th and was standing on 3b as the potential tying run when the game ended. Given the fact that our Matt Duffy's rapid development has cost the chance to see a "both Matt Duffy's" matchup in the PCL, this was a nice consolation.

This is a couple of weeks old but the last Flying Squirrels Insider has a lot of good stuff, including some fun interviews with the players on their draft day experiences, as well as ever funny Steve Kline's draft day experience. It also includes a long interview with red-hot Ricky Oropesa.

Mark Reyes almost completely stymied the Rome Braves for 7 innings.  The only Braves that really had success against Reyes were at the top of the order, particularly Ozzie Albies, the Braves #7 prospect (BA) who had two hits vs. Reyes and now has a whopping 15 against Augusta on the year (according to the Rome broadcaster).  LHP Reyes, a 22 yr old who was the 22nd round pick last year out of a Missouri JC continues to have an excellent Sally campaign in a highly pitch to contact way (that frequently doesn't translate at higher levels). He has only a 5.29 K9 this year though his low low 1.46 BB9 helps keep the WHIP down, as does his super low .272 BABIP. The Georgia summer heat appears to have caught up to him last night, as he walked his final three batters of the game, loading the bases before Montero and Fargas bailed him and Augusta out of the inning.

All of Augusta's runs came in a single outburst in the 4th inning. The rally started when Fargas bunted for a hit and then stole 2nd and then Rome committed an error and a PB to really set things up. The only truly hard hit ball in the inning was Will Callaway's 3b and it was really blasted well over the CF's head on a line. Callaway, who had a HR and two doubles two days earlier, seems to have a good swing going right now. He's also, of course, 25 and in the Sally.

Augusta also will be home for fireworks extravaganzas this weekend, and they're apparently going one better with a 3D show. Personally I find that fireworks seen in person are already in 3D (since that's the way my eyes function normally) and the annoying glasses are probably not necessary. C'est la vie.

2015 6th round pick Steven Duggar made his pro debut in this game (he of the eye-popping physical tools but underwhelming college performance) but it was 2014 UDFA Chase Compton who had the big game with four hits and 2 RBI. CJ Hinojosa pitched in with a 2 run double. In all the Volcanoes had 10 hits (including 3 doubles), 3 BBs and 3 HBs. Volcanoes TV recap featured an interview with Compton:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/YrD2TB-KQm0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

On the mound Logan Webb had his best start of the season.  He struck out the side in the second, which completed a sequence where he struck out 4 of 5 batters. He only K'd one more batter over his final 3 innings, but it's good to see the velo turning into some missed bats. The Volcanoes featured a ton more velocity out of the bullpen as well as Cory Taylor and wild child lefty Caleb Smith picked up 3 innings, striking out 5 and walking 4 between them.

The Giants have the fourth best record in the 38 team DSL, which is notable particularly in light of how young this Giants team is.  Normally, the Giants run out a fairly old team for the the DSL, and while they definitely have vets playing major roles on this team, yesterday's lineup included six 17 year olds and two eighteen year olds. So it's good to see them collectively having success, even though some of them individually are scuffling with the transition to pro ball.

Victor Concepcion had one of his worst performances of the year, actually allowing more baserunners than innings pitched. What the heck, Victor! (/prepares 'Chasm gif for later use).
