SF Giants Minor Lines, 6/6

This may shock you, but Kyle Crick's BB/K ratio was not quite the same as Madison Bumgarner's. But I have hopes for that Peavy kid.

I can't say the stuff looks major league crisp yet, but I'd still enjoy seeing this sight on an SF mound again soon.

Sacramento is now on a five game winning streak as their season of streaks continues. Peavy threw three nearly perfect innings to start this game, retiring 9 of the first 10 hitters he faced.  His 5 Ks were the most in any of his three rehab starts. He threw 44 strikes in 69 pitches. And really the only trouble he had came on this pitch to Franklin Gutierrez.

Jack Snodgrass relieved Peavy, making his AAA debut with a 3.2 IP effort that got him his first AAA win after years in AA.

The RiverCats didn't do a lot offensively in this game. Only two of their hitters reached base twice (Adrianza and Parker). But in back to back innings in the 5th and 6th they did manage to load the bases. The first time Kevin Frandsen ground into a DP to end the threat. But in the 6th, UCLA grad (that's for you Nathan) Trevor Brown provided all the offense they'd need in the game with this swing of the bat:

So let's take something of an extended look at Kyle Crick with a three batter sequence in the first inning.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ZSbhA95NZSc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

If you watch Crick you can see examples of the things that have dogged him for a few years now: inconsistent landing position, a tendency to get stiff kneed on his landing leg, pulling open with his chest when he delivers, and general trouble repeating his delivery.

On the season now, Crick has 38 Ks, 32 BBs in 38.1 IP.  Over his last four starts he's had almost exactly a 50/50 split of balls and strikes, as he was yesterday with 40 strikes in 80 pitches.  He does, however, remain difficult to square up.  If you look at the charts on his MLBFarm.com page you'll see that when he's not striking people out or walking them, he's mostly getting groundballs.  Dalton Pompey, BA's #30 prospect in baseball this year, who began the season in Toronto's OF produced only 3 groundball outs vs. Crick in this one. So, pretty much an average day at the Kyle Crick experience.

Pompey would provide New Hampshire with most of their offense, and tie up the game when he took Edwin Quirarte deep for a two-run HR. The game remained tied at 3-3 into the late innings, but Ricky Oropesa knocked in Mac Williamson to take the lead and then the Squirrels took this one home with a big hit coming from an old friend:

JAX! Not sure exactly where that ball went (thanks camera crew!) but it looked well struck!

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

Richmond is now 27-26. Since the nadir of their 15 game losing streak when they were 3-17, the Squirrels have gone 24-9. Pretty tremendous job of grinding it out, guys!

San Jose lost to High Desert (Rangers), 10-2

San Jose had a championship ring replica giveaway promotion for this game, and then they pretty much went out on the field and faceplanted.

Seven different SJ hitters had a single single in this game, but that was all. Nobody reached base twice, nobody had a walk or an XBH. It pretty much defined a scattered offensive effort today. Sometimes SJ's free-swinging ways lead to some ugly peripherals in the box score and this was one of those days as the team combined for 0 BBs against 10 Ks.

Martin Agosta had a Jekyll and Hyde start in this one with an excellent 8:0 K:BB, but he also gave up a lot of hard contact with 2 HRs and 3 doubles among his 8 hits surrendered. He continues to search for answers as a starter.  Another guy searching for answers this year is Christian Jones, who has really struggled with the Cal League and continued to do so last night.

So the SJ fans didn't get much in the way of a game, but they got shiny baubles:

Well, if you're gonna blow a save, might as well blow it big I guess. The Greenjackets went to 9th trying to protect a 7-6 lead and... well, they didn't.

Got to cut it short today as I have a stacked day. I'll include the DSL game in the Sunday report as they have Sunday's off.
